Hahaha haha.

There are some very out of touch oldies on here.

Last time I stayed in a hotel in the UK that wasn't a stopover before international travel or an organised training event or conference?  At least 10 years ago.

A stop in a city will be in a high end apartment with two bedrooms, separate living room and bathrooms and right where I want to be.  They are normally surrounded by restaurants (some of which will be organised to deliver to you if you want) or of course you can order from any takeaway.

Most are also serviced so linen etc gets changed and room made while you are out.

Google "serviced apartments there are thousands and thousands of four and five star to pick from.

Somewhere out of a city then you rent a lovely cottage or house on the same basis.  No way on earth would I use a hotel.

Booking.com

Lastminute.com

All changes on 17th anyway when we will still be stuck with isolation for people coming here, but at least by then people here can start a two week trip to UK knowing they are incredibly unlikely to need to do more than a days isolation when they come back.

Slowly, common sense is starting to prevail.

Just a shame we aren't slightly ahead of the curve and a keen to benefit.

The insistence on 7 days through May is stupid but just about tolerable when the end is only a handful of weeks away.

The fact that the example used to show "the UK is closed" was a premier inn speaks volumes.  How 90s.

Premier Inn is ace for business or airport stays.  No way would I stay in one when on a break - bleak

They're great for short stays like a weekend on the piss.

Nope. Still rather be in an apartment with some mates for a weekend away (all old and married now, no requirement for bringing "visitors" back these days)

Do people still use hotels for holidays? I only use them for overnight at airports, most people I know use Airbnb or VRBO you should try it out.

For us it depends on the length of stay. We had five weeks each in Seville and Lisbon in the winter 2020. That was Airbnb, couldn't spent that long in a hotel. We had side trips of a couple of days to Cadiz, Porto, etc. They were hotels, hardly worth getting food and drink in for an Airbnb stay. Same as for a long weekend in Liverpool, Bristol, Carlisle, etc.

Doesn’t look like Cambon forecast of September for international travel will be correct, that’s a surprise!

There will be some "opening up" of foreign travel on 17 May Prime Minister Boris Johnson has indicated, but said it was important to be cautious. 

More details are expected this week to confirm when and how international travel will restart in England.

Speaking on Monday, the PM said "we'll be saying more as soon as we can" but "we have got to be very, very tough".

He also said there was a "good chance" of the one-metre plus social distancing rule being scrapped on 21 June.

I think Cambon referred to unrestricted travel. And, again, you over state your case. Sure some restrictions on exeat regno will go on 17 May. That’s not the same as others opening up with unrestricted open arms, or UK or IOM imposing restrictions on your return

This is what Cambon said a week ago so not sure why you defend his consistently incorrect posts , he is wrong on IOM borders & international travel.

Regarding borders, I said IoM borders would be easedfrom July, but don't expect any international travel until September. I stand by that.

He is wrong a lot less than you, consistently so.

Don't really remember Banker being wrong tbh.  People might not have liked what he/she has had to say, but things are looking like they are opening up pretty much in line with what they have been saying.

Watching a news item now about EU recommending open borders from end of June for EU residents/citizens and people from other countries assuming they are vaccinated using one of the EU authorised vaccinations.

Things are going to start opening up very quickly through June and July

Banker just overstates everything. That automatically makes 3/4 of what he posts about dates and deadlines wrong.

EU citizens and residents

Vaccination certificates and two doses. Depends on agreeing how to evidence that.

its not unrestricted travel.

it still doesn’t deal with returning without restriction either.

Its going to be a long, slow, slog, way into 2022 for long haul.

So instead of admitting what you said was wrong you just say well he’s less wrong than you !! Unbelievable, perhaps you should try politics, you’d fit in well
