Why you should book your next overnight stay directly with us

Why you should book your next overnight stay directly with us

From special offers to greater flexibility on your hotel booking. You get more perks and exclusive rates when you book your hotel stay direct. Think of Future Inns for your next stay in Bristol, Cardiff or Plymouth.

It is always cheaper to book your hotel stay direct!

Booking a hotel room used to be a strenuous task, however, with the use of modern-day technology these can be booked quickly from your phone, laptop or tablet with a few clicks. The online agents and booking sites have made information easily accessible and allow you to discover new hotel properties. They may save you time and effort, but you will end up paying more. 

Online booking agents and third-party websites make money by making a reservation on behalf of the hotel. The commissions that these intermediaries charge, often end up on the customer’s bill. The rates offered are usually higher than booking directly from the hotel. Meaning, if you book direct, you can save money.

Complimentary room upgrades

On occasions, we give guests complimentary upgrades, and priority of these are given to those who have booked directly. Plus, by booking direct, you can ask the team for any special requests you may have. Even though they are not guaranteed, a note will be made.   


The most significant benefit of booking directly is the opportunity for greater flexibility. In case of an unforeseen circumstance, emergencies, cancellation and refunds, then it can be much more complicated with an online agent. Either with refunds not being an option or a deposit being retained. 

Special requests

Have a room you would prefer to stay in, need a twin bedroom or require an accessible stay?  When booking on our website, you can select your room type.  When you book directly with the hotel you are speaking to staff who know the hotel layout and are in the best position to accommodate your request and offer advice. 

Special offers

Special offers and packages again can only be booked directly with us, with the majority of the booking agents being room only or bed and breakfast. Booking directly with us you can enjoy a festive break, a golf break, a cycling break, a group booking - a night away with friends, or even larger bookings for coach companies and tour groups

The team can also help you book a 24-hour residential delegate package for conferences and events. Alongside your full-day conference package is an overnight stay, which comes with breakfast and dinner. Corporate rates can also be set up with the hotel Sales Manager, with a fixed price based on the number of bedrooms your company would need for the years contract. 

Future Club Rewards

For additional benefits, you can join the hotel’s loyalty program.  For every £1 you spend on accommodation, in the bar and in the restaurant, you earn 1 reward point.  Points can then be used to upgrade your bedroom to a suite or free night stays.  You also get a complimentary drink voucher to redeem in the bar every time you stay and access to exclusive members-only promotions throughout the year.
