Press and Reader Reviews…
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 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.

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.
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 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.

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

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 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 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.
