Great bookings worldwide
+ Up to 11% Cashback
Whether you’re planning a luxury night away or doing a long weekend on a budget, LateRooms.com has an unbeatable selection of rooms for you to choose from, all available at the best possible rates. With so many special deals for on-the-day bookings, it can actually pay to leave things to the last minute.
In 1999, the creators of LateRooms.com came up with the idea of setting up a platform that would allow hotels to advertise their unsold rooms, focusing on bookings made “on the day for the day”. Based in Salford, LateRooms.com now offers more UK hotels than anyone else, and hundreds of thousands of rooms worldwide. You’ll find more than just last-minute deals too – you can use LateRooms.com to search for accommodation up to a year in advance. What’s more, you’ll never have to pay any more than you have to. If you find the same room available anywhere else on the web for less, LateRooms.com will refund you the difference.
With more hotels across the country than any other site, LateRooms.com has all the UK’s biggest cities from London to Glasgow covered. Whether you want to stroll along Edinburgh's Royal Mile, hit the shops at Birmingham's Bullring or wander the waterfront in Cardiff, you'll have loads of choice, including special rates on some same-day bookings. Top tip: when you get to your search results, use the map view to see exactly where each hotel is in the city. Need to be near MediaCity in Manchester? Want to be close to Oxford Street in London? You'll be able to see at a glance which properties will put you in the right part of town.
We love cities, but urban breaks aren't the only thing you can plan on LateRooms.com. It's also great for good old-fashioned British seaside holidays. Take on the rollercoasters at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, explore the attractions and amusement arcades on Brighton Pier, or catch some waves in any of Cornwall’s top surf spots. And coastal resorts aren't all about the seafront – you'll find a great modern art gallery in Bournemouth and a dramatic hilltop castle in Scarborough, for instance. Last-minute deals are perfect for UK trips, as you can book your room and be in your destination within a few hours (or even less, depending on where you're off to). So be spontaneous and discover somewhere new this weekend.
Fascinated by the UK’s rich and complex past? Use LateRooms.com to book a break in a historic town or city. Take in the grand Victorian architecture in Leeds, learn about Belfast’s maritime past in its recently regenerated Titanic Quarter, or make a trip to York, where you can walk round the city's medieval walls and step even further back in time at the Jorvik Viking Centre. The range of destinations on LateRooms.com will leave any history buff spoilt for choice. And if you’re after an extra dose of culture, you’ll also find world-class galleries and art spaces all over historic cities such as Liverpool and Bristol.
Search LateRooms.com to choose the setting for your next rural escape. Take the time to recharge your batteries with a night or two away in one of the countless scenic country locations throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Check into a country house hotel in Keswick to explore the Lake District, or book a hotel room in St Andrews to enjoy a spot of golf while absorbing the scenery of Scotland's east coast. Use LateRooms.com's price, category and facility filters to help you find accommodation that suits your tastes and budget, from cosy B&Bs to luxury hotels complete with 24-hour room service and indoor pools.
You can also use LateRooms.com for holidays a little further from home. Browse an extensive range of hotels in Ireland and the rest of Europe, offering loads of options for city breaks, beach holidays and ski trips. The late deals on offer make it a great place to plan weekend hops to Paris and Amsterdam (both only an hour or so from the UK by air). Going even further afield? No problem – you can search LateRooms.com for properties in popular regions around the world, from Australia to Southeast Asia to the USA. Again, you can use map views to find hotels near the places and attractions you want to see. Extra top tip: you'll find 'airport shuttle service' among the facility filters, which is really handy if you know you're going to be arriving at an awkward time and don't want to mess around with cabs or public transport.
Booking your accommodation with LateRooms.com couldn’t be easier. As we've already seen, the site allows you to search over 200,000 hotels, and filter them by price, facilities, rating and more. You’ll also be able to read reviews left by past guests, giving you an extra level of confidence in your choice. If you're still not sure, you can save your searches to reload later – not every booking has to be spontaneous!
Once you’ve chosen your room, you can reserve online immediately. You don't even need to make a payment – you’ll receive a booking reference and then pay at the hotel. And the price you pay is the one you see on the site, because LateRooms.com doesn’t charge booking fees. It also won't charge you if you want to cancel a booking, but do bear in mind that hotels might levy a charge, and that cancellation might affect your cashback.

One of LateRooms.com's most exciting features is its Secret Rooms initiative, which can give you huge savings on typical room rates. Just put in a location and you'll see a list of deals from anonymised hotels – you'll be able to see star ratings and general information about facilities, but you won't see the hotel name until you've booked. And these aren't out-of-the-way properties; we're talking central locations in London, Edinburgh and other major cities. Check the T&Cs before nabbing one of these deals, as the booking might not be eligible for cashback.
