Common hotel mistakes that need to be avoided

In the present times, booking a hotel has been very easy. People love to have a vacation and to enjoy their life. With the help of technology, it has been easier to spend it well. With different hotels offering different offers to attract customers it is hard to resist them.

The hotels many times fake them so that you book them. It is all business tactics. You cannot trust the unknown in this world and should be super cautious. There are some common mistakes that most of the people while booking a hotel. Know the mistakes and try to avoid it in the future.

The perfect time to book a hotel

One of the common mistakes that most of the travelers make is that to find out the perfect time to book a hotel. In fact, there is no perfect time to book a hotel. However, you can anticipate the perfect time and the duration when you should plan your vacation.

The price of the hotels goes high when the number of booking increases. This is possible when it is the season of tourists in that particular place. Hence during this time, the price of the hotels goes high. Hence avoid this popular booking time is the best you can do.

Being sure that you are getting the best deal

With the coupons and discounts to attract customers, you may think that you are getting the best deal. However, that is obvious to think if you are getting a price lower than the other hotels. However, the truth is far from what it seems.

As the saying goes all that glitters is not gold. Hence, if you see too many discounts then assume that there is something wrong with the hotel. There may be some issues with the hotels that forced them to pull their rates down compared to the rest in the area.

The rate that they may provide may be the minimum rate that doesn’t have the extra charges included in it.

Ignoring the customer’s review

If you are out for a vacation then you expect to have a good time. However, another mistake that a tourist makes is that he blindly checks in the hotel without considering much knowledge about it. This is a very risky thing as you are not aware of what the hotel could be. You may lodge in and realize that you could get the most out of your money.

It is therefore important that you read the hotels review before booking it. In the internet world, you can get the reviews of all the hotels in just beneath your fingers. You can use that to check the reputation of the hotels so that you can have a safe stay. Other people’s experience can help your experience better.


Booking a hotel over the years has been easy. However to book right hotels among the wide variety available isn’t that easy thing. You have to research well to have both a good experience hotel as well as the budget-oriented hotel.

The Hotel is now under new management. As part of this transition we are undertaking some major renovation work, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

All building works are sympathetic to the style of the existing architecture and do not interrupt normal service. We have now installed wheelchair access to the ground floor areas, including the garden, bar and restaurants. We have built a covered section in the garden, have added a children’s play area, and are carrying out general maintenance on the guest rooms and reception area (pictured above).



Old World charm in the Welsh Borders.

"Old World charm in the Welsh Borders..."

The Radnorshire Arms is a warm and welcoming, family run hotel which lies at the heart of the old county town of Radnorshire, Presteigne (Llanandras in Welsh, meaning ‘the church of St Andrew’). 
Scant yards from the English border and nestled amidst rolling hills and wonderful open countryside, this Grade II listed building, with its wealth of original exposed beams and timber panelled walls, exudes an atmosphere of luxurious comfort and classic Jacobean elegance.

The hotel today is as rich in amenities as its 16th century structure is in history. With 19 rooms, all fully equipped to the highest standards, 2 restaurants, a residents’ lounge, traditional bar and large garden, the Radnorshire Arms can accommodate individuals, couples, families and larger groups in relaxed and spacious surroundings.
