Press and Reader Reviews…
‘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.

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.

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.
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.

The author’s travel writing is well observed and his engaging motorhome experiences will ring true with many of our readers and other motorhomers.
Rob Ganley - EditorPractical Motorhome Magazine
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.
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 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.
Rosie Amber - Author and Reviewer
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!

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.
