Prices for hotel rooms in the United Kingdom have finally dropped off after an particularly expensive summer.

Figures released in the Trivago Hotel Price Index this week revealed that guestrooms cost an average £4 less than in September, when rates were still up 21 per cent compared to the same month in 2011.

The biggest price drops were seen in Brighton and Edinburgh, where rates decreased by 15 per cent and 13 per cent respectively, whilst elsewhere in the British Isles the Irish capital also saw rates drop by 13 per cent.

Meanwhile, a similar trend was record throughout most of continental Europe, where average rates declined by 23 per cent between September and October. Compared to September of 2011, this year’s rates are down 7 per cent, according to the report.

Cities seeing significant declines include the German capital, where the average has decreased 23 per cent, as well as Copenhagen and Vienna, both of which have seen an 11 per cent decrease. In contrast, Madrid was the only city to report a rise, where the average rate climbed to £98 a night, an increase of 18 per cent.
