Can anyone help me please? I'm trying to book accommodation in England for later in the year. I've sent off LOADS of emails to pubs and inns and manor/hotels and got very few replies. I'm wanting historic places to stay, ones that haven't been turned 'modern' inside but I'm finding it nearly impossible to book anything. I actually sent off an email asking to book a room in a very prominent castle/hotel and still have not heard anything after 2 more follow up emails. Are enough people booking just by turning up on the day and so they don't need anymore business? I can't understand why these places have such great websites and yet they don't respond to messages. Can anyone give me any insight as to why this may be? I'm getting close to cancelling this part of my trip and going straight from Canada to Europe. Thanks in advance!
