The price of hotel stays in the united kingdom have risen substantially in the past 12 months, a new study has shown.

The news comes via a recent study conducted by online travel group TripAdvisor; the report revealed last week that the average night stay has increased by nearly 30 per cent over the past year.

Four-star properties saw some of the highest increases. Figures published in the survey revealed that a night stay in a four-star hotel in Birmingham was about £92.70 through the last 12 months, marking a whopping 47 per cent rise seen over the average rate of £62.69 seen during the same period one year prior.

Last year’s London Olympics had much to do with the increase according to many industry analysts. However, some remain firm that the inflation still seems to be outpacing demand.

James Kay said on behalf of TripAdvisor that the increase was a surprise, noting that the survey results suggest rising confidence among hotel operators and owners throughout the UK.
