Press and Reader Reviews…
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.

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!

Similar experiences as all of us “campers”. If you are considering a camper van or a caravan this book is essential reading, super!!
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 a delightful account of Nigel’s first trip in his newly purchased motorcaravan. It’s a great read for any active motorcaravanner – they’ll recognise the frustrating moments as well as sharing in the sheer joie de vivre that permeates both our shared lifestyle and this well-written tale. In addition it’s an absolute ‘must have’ for those considering purchase, first timers and greenhorns. We’ve all been there and now we are hooked!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Some bits were very informative & other parts made me laugh out loud. Can’t wait for the sequel!

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.
