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!

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!

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!

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 !

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.

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.

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.

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.
