Accor’s ‘Happy Mondays’ is the most generous hotel promotion available for last minute weekend rooms in the UK. If you find yourself in need of a hotel room for this weekend, it is definitely the best place to look.
(If you need a hotel for a date further in advance, one option is book a reward room with another chain now – just to guarantee a bed. Make a diary note to return to this page on the Mondary or Tuesday before your stay and see if you can get a ‘Happy Mondays’ deal. You can then cancel your reward night with the other hotel.)
It is nice and simple, and potentially a good deal. Every Monday and Tuesday, Accor makes a raft of UK hotel rooms available at discount prices for the following weekend.
The new Happy Mondays booking link
Happy Mondays has a special booking page – click here.
This successfully brings up all of the deals for this coming Friday, Saturday and Sunday across the UK.
Here is a summary of the deal:
These are ‘room only’ deals and only some Accor hotels will be participating on any particular date
The headline prices range from £25 for Ibis Budget hotels in London and Ibis hotels outside London, up to £60 for Mercure and Novotel hotels in central London.
Bookings will earn Le Club AccorHotels points
If the booking page above does not work properly (some weeks Accor seem to forget to update it!) you can also book directly by using the ‘Preferential Code’ MONDAY on the main Accor home page. This does not seem to show full availability for some reason but it is better than nothing if the main link is not working.
This is a great offer, especially in London.
I looked yesterday and – for this coming Saturday night – was able to book, amongst other options, the Novotel Excel for £40, the Mercure Bloomsbury for £60, the ibis City for £40 and the Mercure Greenwich for £60. The ibis at Heathrow is just £25! You will sometimes see the more central Ibis Excel and Ibis Budget City at £25.
These are clearly excellent deals and this promotion is well worth bearing in mind next time you need a short-notice weekend hotel in the UK.
