Cheating Couples take to Budget Hotels for Illicit Encounters!


Cheating Couples take to Budget Hotels for Illicit Encounters!

A new survey by the UK’s largest extra-marital dating website has placed Premier Inn as the hotel most often used by adulterers.

The study surveyed 2000 of its members and found that an overwhelming 40% of affair seekers choose to book with Premier Inn for their rendezvous.

Second most voted for hotel chain was Travelodge (22%), and in third place Holiday Inn (11%).

The Premier Inn that was most visited by adulterers was selected as Premier Inn London Kensington Olympia Hotel.

Premier Inn is the UK’s biggest Hotel brand, totaling 690 hotels in Britain. It seems that quantity may trump quality over hotel bookings, with more deluxe hotels getting fewer overall votes.

The top reasons given for hotel choice were-

1.    Affordability
2.    Day room or early check-in option
3.    Facilities
4.    Anonymity
5.    Quality

Geoffrey a male member using the site who chose Premier Inn said “They’re readily available and affordable. You can also pay cash at the front desk on arrival, meaning I’ve not got to worry about a hotel springing up on my billing history.”

Louise a female member using the site said “I chose Premier Inn because it has a convenient location, close enough not to arouse suspicion but far enough to feel discrete! The facilities are great too, nice restaurant bar and great service. If you call ahead you can get early check in too, which lets you arrive unnoticed.”

Spokesperson for Claire Page said “The top cheating hotels are all within the budget bracket – of course affair-seekers don’t want to splash out for a hotel that they may only use for a couple of hours in the day. Premier Inn’s motto ‘Everything’s Premier, but the price!’ echoes the thoughts of adulterers who chose affordability as the top reason for booking. Being the biggest hotel chain in the UK helps, Premier Inn’s are everywhere and easy to reach making them a very obvious choice for an illicit encounter.”
