Plymouth is the best value city in the UK for a hotel stay, according to Trivago’s annual Best Value UK City Index.
The list, which includes 26 cities with at least 50 hotels and an average of 150 reviews per hotel, combines hotel price data and aggregated user reviews and ratings. It found Plymouth, with an index of 90.33, to be the best valued city while London was named in last place.
At an average of £76 per night for the past year, Plymouth is also one of the cheapest UK cities for a hotel stay (following Sheffield at £71 and Nottingham at £73). Second place was Exeter, with an index of 89.20 and an average hotel price of £82.
Although price is a contributing factor to the best value index, Trivago said cities must also have “excellent” hotel ratings. Salisbury and Inverness, for example, came in at third and fourth places despite having an average price per night of £108 and £109, respectively.
Hotels in the best valued cities were praised for their good location, friendly staff, spacious rooms and affordability.
