No-one is staying in hotels anymore

24 August 2012

Bitterwallet - Hotel 91Lousy weather, no money and a general malaise. These aren't the best things if you're working in the service industry. Everyone is staying indoors and sulking. Those who aren't are either wealthy or alcoholics.


As a result, the hotel industry is really feeling it with fewer people staying in hotels than last year, according to a survey. If you're travelling, you may as well stay on a mate's sofa, eh?

Occupancy rates in Scotland were down 1.4% according to PKF, and residencies were down 5.3% in Wales and 3% in England. Scotland was the only one which saw a slight rise in the "rooms yield" rate (that's the average revenue brought in by the hotel for all rooms, divided by the number of rooms divided by 365 nights) despite a yield fall of an average 2.3% across the UK.

Alastair Rae, from PKF's real estate and hospitality sector, said: "These revenue figures will be welcome news for Scotland's hoteliers who have had a difficult few months since Easter. Although occupancy fell 1.4% during June, this is better than the rest of the UK where occupancy dropped along with revenue."

"In Scotland, revenue stabilised with a 0.2% increase in June and the actual rooms yield of £61.83 is £13.60 higher than the average for regional UK, indicating prices stabilising at a reasonable level."

So there you have it. More people want to stay in Scotland than any other part of Britain. Who'd-a-thunk?

    Prices too high. Food is rubbish as well. English breakfast isn't a hearty breakfast for a hotel.
  • Mr M.
    British hotels cost a fortune, that's the problem... For the price of a weekend stay in the UK you can get abroad for a week.

    @badger We don't fucking want you anyway, you cretin. You probably say "floor" when you mean "ground", like all you other English twats.
  • Raggedy
    A Scottish Wookie? Now that's not something you see every day . . .
  • Chewbacca
    Aw raggedy, you wanna see my wookie? Didn't know you rolled "like that"....
  • Me
    Chewbacca a Scottish, racist, Wookie and... CUNT!

    "Occupancy rates in Scotland were down 1.4% according to PKF... Scotland was the only one which saw a slight rise in the “rooms yield” rate" So in other words, fewer people stayed but this drop was more than made up for by a price increase? Kinda explains why perhaps fewer people are staying.

    @Me (really, are you 12? I mean, what a cuntish "username") Good to see you resorting to the stock insults. Are you incapable of independent thought? Go ask mummy for some tips on how to wind up others. After I've finished sodomising her, of course.
  • Me
    @ Chewbacca I asked your mother! And she would not join the gang bang as she ran away with Mike Cock. Who is actually funny and not a racist cunt!
  • Nikey H.
    I am Mike's brother. Mikey didn't tell me nowt about no gangbang ?
  • Me
    @ Nikey Hock Seriously? Give him a call as I doubt that Chewbacca's mother is satisfied only with half of a dozen men...
  • Chewbacca
    @Me (change it to twat, more apt) I see what you did there! Although, most people with even an average intellect would have realised I was referring to your mother. I accept this was an error, as obviously you are a bastard. You keep going on about racism, raw nerve? You know what to do if you don't like my comments, although I've never actually said anything racist, nor do I subscribe to any racist ideals. I still think you're a cunt though.
  • Me
    OH I am so afraid of you! Since I am 12 years old according to your judgement... I can also claim that you are also a bully! I call out votes! Anyone who thinks Chewbacca is a cunt post a comment.
  • Twat a.
    Shut up ChewbaKKKa, you Bigoted shitbag.

    @ Chewbastard I would ask your mother to call and teach you good manners. But I have been told that she has a mouthful and is waiting for her pearl necklace to be delivered.
  • You
    There's no bigger cunt here than Me. Oh, shit....
