Hotel prices in the UK are down substantially from the previous year, new figures have shown.

The news comes via the November edition of the Trivago Hotel Price Index, which revealed that the average price of a room this month is £111, marking a 15 per cent drop from November of 2011, when the average was £130. The figure also reflects a 7 per cent decrease from October, when a typical one-night stay in the United Kingdom stood at £119.

The most dramatic drops from October to November were recorded in Edinburgh (a drop of 9 percent), Blackpool (9 per cent) and Brighton (10 per cent). In contrast, Cardiff is one of the few destinations performing better this month; the average night stay in the Welsh city climbed to £91 per night, marking a 13 per cent year-on-year increase and a 8 per cent gain over October.

Meanwhile, the majority of destinations saw a decrease of just 1 to 3 per cent, according to the survey of more than 600,000 hotel properties around the world.

The report also revealed that prices for hotels across continental Europe are also down, where the typical night stay has dropped by an average of £19 since September – a decline of 13 per cent.
