There have been small areas in the UK which have seen a small increase in the average cost of a one night hotel stay and these are Cardiff, Wales and Liverpool, England. Cardiff has seen an 8% increase in the cost of a hotel however this has been attributed to the large number of sporting events which are occurring in the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
