Thistle Hotels, one of the UK`s leading hotel companies, has just launched the first dedicated hotel auction site, offering great value deals for weekend breaks, all starting from just £1.
Every Monday the Thistle auction site, which can be accessed via www.thistleauctions.com, offers a new selection of weekend breaks at many of the group`s 56 UK hotels. Each set of auctions finish on the following Tuesday and the breaks are valid for the following weekend. All of the auctions start from just £1, without a reserve, for one or two night weekend breaks for two people, including English breakfast each morning.
Several of the individual hotels are auctioning suites or studios through the site, offering potential savings of over £650 for a weekend break.
Visitors to the site simply need to register to take part in any of the on-line auctions. Fairmarket, one of the leading on-line auction providers, provides the technology behind the site.
Commenting on the recently launched site, Euan Mitchell, director of distribution for Thistle Hotels: “Following a highly successful and hassle-free soft launch at the beginning of July, thistleauctions.com has proved an instant success with some fierce bidding already taking place. A number of two-night breaks, many in suites and studios, have already been brought for under £95 and with the number of auctions appearing on the site increasing each week, there are certainly some great bargains to be had.”
With 24 Thistle Hotels in London, properties in most of the UK`s major cities and four Country House Hotels, the auction site will offer a diverse range of weekend breaks across the UK from Aberdeen to Cardiff and Cheltenham to Newcastle.
