Is Premier Inn better value than our local, family run hotels?

Travelodge have recently put in planning permission to build a 70-room hotel in Bude (to replace the derelict bus depot opposite the Co-op supermarket).  Click here fore more info…

There’s a great deal of debate on various Bude Facebook pages about this – both positive and negative.

There are two recurring points within the comments.  They show huge support for our privately owned and family run Hotels, Guest Houses and B&B’s but also refer to the positive impact of having low-cost accommodation available to visitors.

Not surprisingly, many of the comments duplicate those which were voiced when we learnt that a Premier Inn was to open in Bude.

We facilitate lots of bookings for our local Hotel, Guest House and B&B’s at the Tourist Information Centre, on the VisitBude website and with our printed accommodation guides.  When we talk to our visitors (which we do all day, every day), we’ve noticed that people are often surprised to discover that our locally owned accommodation can be cheaper than the rates offered at Premier Inn.

We’ll have to wait and see if Travelodge get planning permissions to open in Bude and if they offer the bargain prices people may expect!  

We’ve compared the cost of a two-night stay in Bude.  As you can see, there are a great range of prices and styles of accommodation available.  Whatever your taste, Bude can offer the corporate hospitality on offer at Premier Inn, personal service at a B&B and Guest House through to the luxurious design-led Beach Hotel and historic Falcon Hotel.

If you’re looking to book a stay in Bude based on price, you’ll see here that throughout May, June and July 2019, the Premier Inn is never the cheapest place to stay… Why not have a quick look at the options below and see what our locally owned hotels can offer you?

Prices are for a two night stay in the lowest priced room including breakfast with availability.  For places without private parking or unrestricted parking outside, we’ve factored in the price of two days parking.  Prices are correct as of 12 noon, 28th March 2019 for rooms with availability.
