Press and Reader Reviews…
The author’s travel writing is well observed and his engaging motorhome experiences will ring true with many of our readers and other motorhomers.

Nigel tells how his eventful holiday was with brutal honesty, as befitting an Engineer with integrity. Its scope is much broader than the motorhome holiday, though. Consequently, there is a rich source of knowledge with lessons to be learned. Read the book – it’s very different from the usual travelogue but more entertaining and instructive for those which would contemplate a motorhome holiday.
A brilliant book! When you read this book, you join Nigel, Emm (his wife) and there dog Monty on their first ever motor-home holiday. You will enjoy the funny, frustrating and interesting times as though you were there with them. I would recommend this book to anyone whether you like comedy, factual or travel books, there is something here for you. I am 13 years old and would , therefore, also recommend this book to anyone of any age. Thank you for your help and getting me back into the swing of reading after my operation.

Very witty and entertaining read. Ideal if you are thinking of buying a motor home – or new to it – since you get a first hand account of the ups and downs – along with some handy tips!

Some People Prefer Hotels is one man’s account of those first miles in a motorhome. He captures the steep learning curve in great detail: the trials, the successes, the fun and the freedom. He also offers asides which are informative and give the book an added dimension. Overall this was a fascinating read.

Some People Prefer Hotels Motorhome Novices tour Cornwall is about Nigel and Emm’s enthusiasm for a motorhome and the learning curve which goes with being a novice. With the trip at a final successful end, Nigel leaves the reader with a set of useful items he suggests you might need to survive your own trip. It’s a great slow paced tour of one of Britain’s most popular counties.

Really enjoyed this book, I could relate so much to ‘motor home life’ as we have our own little motor home. Wishing Nigel would write another book, very well written. and made me long to be out and about in my motor home.
This very detailed and funny account of holidaying in a motorhome will be reassuringly familiar to fellow motorhomers. The ups and downs come as no surprise to us – I’m glad we’re not alone in taking wrong turns and making false starts! Lots of lovely historical detail too about places visited recently and in years gone by. And yes… we also share many of your crotchety gripes!

A well written, informative and very funny book. Love the tales of times gone by and descriptions of the places visited. One to be picked up at every opportunity. A very enjoyable read and very good value for money.
