Free Wi-fi: should hotels offer it to their customers?

By | Category: Travel rumblings

Another weekend, another wedding… this one was in Cambridge – a bustling market town famous for its bicycles, choristers and one of the most respected universities in the world, if not its affordable accommodation.

The hotel we finally managed to book into (most beds in Cambridge, I have learned, tend to get booked up months in advance) had arguably everything one would want – save for free WiFi. At £150 per night, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to expect paid for Wi-Fi. If the likes of McDonalds, Costa and Caffe Nero can offer their customers complimentary Wi-Fi, then surely so called luxury hotels should be able to?

Paying an arm and a leg for Wi-Fi in hotels is definitely one of my bete noirs about hotel rooms, but we’re all different: my Mother, for example, moans about overly complicated lighting or dark ‘mood’ lighting that is supposed to be cool but only ends up causing casualties.  But how about you? We want to know what makes you mad about modern hotel rooms? Let us know by posting a comment below!
