HOTEL prices are soaring in the run-up to the Jubilee in June, according to a study out today from Santander, with some rising by as much as 223 per cent.

The survey found London hotel prices rising by an average of 54 per cent over the Jubilee weekend compared with the same length of stay in May.

The three- and five-star hotels studied ranged in price between £832 and £6,606 for a four-night stay from Saturday 2 June to Wednesday 6 June, for a family of four.

That compares with a range from £710 to £4,302 for a Saturday to Wednesday stay in mid-May.

Families visiting Edinburgh can expect to pay an average premium of 28 per cent, or £312, while those staying in Manchester are likely to be pay eight per cent more, or £48.

“Demand for hotel rooms in London is likely to be fierce over the Jubilee Bank Holiday weekend – the premiums our research has uncovered will price many families out of the capital altogether,” said Santander’s Andy Smith.
