If you are in the UK, then you probably know that it is fairly common for pubs to have rooms. It is a good option for people who are having a fun night but do not want to be bothered to start looking for accommodation while feeling a little tipsy (or more, depending on how much they have had to drink). Other than the convenience, they also come with the advantage of being relatively cheaper than staying at a hotel.
Guide to Enjoying Your Stay
- Book before you start drinking: Do not assume that the rooms will be vacant waiting for you when you are done drinking at the bar. Start with booking your accommodation before you head to the pub, otherwise, you risk missing the room.
- Never take a stranger to your room: There have been horror stories of people being found dead in their rooms. Imagine the risk you could be putting yourself into if you invite someone to your room, especially if you have been drinking. It is always common for strangers to share drinks and conversations as they exchange banter. Do not extend it to inviting them to your room.
- Leave your key with reception: If you have left the room and you are going to the pub to grab some drinks, do not go with your key. You might lose them as you get intoxicated, or someone could take them and sneak back to your room without your knowledge.
When you are choosing a stay in a pub accommodation, choose one that has good reviews. You should also consider the hygiene level and pricing. Also, remember that you are the one who should be the most bothered about your own self-security. It starts with you; so do all within your means to keep safe.
