Theres been media reports recently about different prices for the same hotels on booking sites, I guess it still pays to shop around, sometimes contacting the hotel directly will give you the rooms and dates you want at the same price as booking websites.

Hi Fosy,
I do shop around but not at those prices in England. Here I always camp or do a house sit for free, staying in luxury accomodation, with sometimes just one cat to feed. Now for five or six nights accommodation at your prices, you could get a flight to Bali and then for just another one nights accommodation, you could stay here with all food for a fortnight. Just two you can check out on google, in case tempted? 'A-one house' on Nusa Lembognan 200,000 Indonesian Rupees (less than £11) the most expensive. I had an upstairs room with huge balcony. Or 'Sudi Guest House' Pemuteran, one of the cheapest at 100,000 IRp. including breakfast (just over £5). All had huge double beds and very comfortable. I just turn up, as you always get it cheaper that way, as they are not paying any commission etc. Always plenty of vacancies everywhere and the bonus is guaranteed warm weather. :-)

hi sea urchin,

i would love to holiday as you do, but i am tied with a dog.
therefore i am limited to brittain, and i like to get a house with a secure garden, which sometimes takes a lot of searching for !

but thanks for the info, it might interest someone else !

[i always wondered how you got away so often to far flung places].

I think you should all check out a great website called Ideal Place to Stay.

You are welcome!

Hi Fosy,
Having a dog should not in any way tie you down. Plenty of pet owners go abroad. You could always get a pet sitter as others do. And nowadays you can get pet passports for quite a few destinations, so dog could come too.

sorry but i wouldnt trust anyone to give the meds required, and to take a dog abroad would be hard work [for a singleton] which is why i only go away for 4 nights at a time, i,ve had enough then !

Go on the internet to find hotel/B&B phone numbers or email. Contact direct and many will give you a discount if you book directly with them. It may only be £2 a night but look after the pennies...
