A survey and data collection site known as OnePoll interviewed 2,000 people in total in order to investigate the residential and accommodation habits of that strange creature of the world known as the Brit. And what the survey found was a staggering and eye-opening evidence of the amount of money that a Brit would theoretically spend on hotel accommodation in the space of an entire lifetime: the average figure was found by OnePoll to be £62 thousand! It seems that the average adult surveyed would spend approximately 1,184 evenings in some form or other of hotel accommodation in 378 individual trips to those places.
For the hotel industry, this is news that indicates that the reliance on hotel accommodation by people in this country is staggering, but what the survey also found was that most did not even express that they made use of the various facilities that the hotel accommodation had to offer to them. Indeed, what this shows according to Naushad Jivraj the Chief Executive Officer of Point A Hotels is that most Brits seem to prefer to simply check in and turn the lights out for the night rather than investigate and explore the various things that the hotels that they visit have to offer. The survey found based on the recordings and analysis of opinions that most adults checking into hotels just wanted to get some shuteye or deposit various baggage that they had with them to the room.
The survey even found that most of them would not bother going to the bar of the hotel, whilst perhaps even more worryingly 74 per cent declared that they would not check out the gym facilities that were on offer if they were in existence at the hotel. The bar is my gym, but it seems clear that for many Britons staying in hotels the top priority for them when they get there is simply to get some rest after whatever journey or excursion that they have come from.
