Press and Reader Reviews…
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.
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!

An affectionate and intimate journey into some of the lesser and most well known parts of the UK. This alternative take offers both real insight and pure entertainment. An endearing read!

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.
Mark Lawn - North Allerton Motorhome Hire
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 unmistakably genuine, and the author has elevated this book above the usual motorhome dairies by skilfully intertwining the tale of his motorhome baptism of fire with memories of family holidays when his children were young. The result is a very enjoyable read that’s certain to strike a chord with almost anyone who has ever holidayed in the UK. The book deserves to be a success and I’d recommend it to anyone with an affection for (or aversion to) motorhomes and British campsite holidays.

I bought this book with the intention of putting it in the motorhome and reading it while away, then started to read it ‘just a few pages’ and then just had to carry on to the end. Id recommend it to anyone with a motorhome/travel interest. We intend to do the tour as in the book this summer visiting the many places mentioned. A great read.
A thoroughly good enjoyable read. Well written easy to pick and read from where you left off. Great holiday book for when you get time to yourself moments. Good humour and informative at the same time. Good Do’s and Dont’s for anyone wanting to experience motor homing. Loved the part when they drove into the narrow streets. I could picture being there and there longing to get away from their predicament !

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.
