It wouldn’t be Wimbledon without a few downpours – but driving home after the match in the pouring rain could be even worse than an impromptu Cliff Richard concert.
Fortunately, HolidayExtras.com has some ace deals on hotels near Wimbledon, so tennis-lovers can enjoy the game without spending hours on the motorway or even missing the start of play because of traffic delays.
Prices for the weekend of the men’s and women’s finals – Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2 – start from an amazing £35 a night for a double room at the Comfort Hotel, a very popular three-star hotel about half an hour from the courts.
It’s a family-friendly hotel where children get a free breakfast – and all rooms have satellite TV, so you can relive the day’s on-court action in the evening.
Or make it game, set and match by booking one of our undercover four-star hotels. Prices start from just £44 for a hotel with a pool, a gym, and air conditioning and a minibar in all rooms. You don’t find out the hotel name until you’ve booked, but you know it’ll be a four-star within easy reach of the venue.
Those who would prefer to know where they’re staying before they book might prefer the Park Inn, a four-star hotel just over half an hour from Wimbledon. With its modern, colourful decor, pool, jacuzzi and sauna, this is a great choice for anyone who wants to make their trip to Wimbledon into a proper Cliff-style summer holiday. Prices start from £90.
Anthony Clarke-Cowell, head of product innovation and development at HolidayExtras.com, said: “With these great prices, it’s definitely worth turning a day out at Wimbledon into a relaxing, luxurious mini-break.”
