GunFun ZS says:

We've the same problem in the USA.

iCONICAACINOCi says:

That fan is spinning the wrong way…

tnerb tnerb says:

Well David, "cheap" can imply a host of negative connotations about a business…maybe "inexpensive" or "frugal" would be better choices for your argument.

Padzilla says:

I don't expect them to run me a bath, I just want to eat some chocolate off my pillow like a normal human being.

Mission Multi Media says:

Lenny Henry is the frontman for Premier Inn, NOT Travelodge.

Niamh O'Connor says:

Wow this is the David Mitchell's Ranting Channel <3

Siskin's Bits and Bobs says:

When I went to my first night as a student in Leeds, I got a taxi to the B&B I would spend the night in. The taxi driver took some callous delight in telling me that the street the B&B was located in, was where they found the Yorkshire Ripper's last victim. I didn't get murdered, but I did notice that the fish tank in the lounge had 2" of fish shit swilling around the gravel. The breakfast was reheated sausage and bacon. Again, I didn't die.

segould says:

I wonder what David's parents think of this. They were both hotel managers. That probably influenced his decision to talk about this.

nlomas says:

lenny henry promotes premier inn

Chris Stehlik says:

I stayed at a Premier Inn one night. it was a decent night's stay. Not bad at all especially for the price. And a real shower in a country where hotels closets converted into showers and not uncommon in the cheaper independent hotels.

HeadphonesLady says:

Travel Lodge is not nicer than you'd think. I actually slept on the floor once, the bed was so hard and lumpy. I think someone had stored a body in the mattress.

TheJamesRedwood says:

No focus on purpose?

orange42 says:

how could they shoot the entire thing out of focus

Klashorian says:

We do it this way in the States too, and it does still mean the exact same thing.

Chowder Stevens says:

His axcents funny, were in America is he from? Alaska! Us in Texas dont sounds like that

Jivan Scarano says:

Why pronounce "Formule" phonetically, and then go on to pronounce "Travelodge" as though it has two Ls?

Warrior Son says:

Where I'm from cheap things and services are called "budget".

Kyle Netherwood says:

A tenner? Is that possible?

Ionlymadethistoleavecoments says:

How have I not found this amazing channel sooner?!

Bill Wiltfong says:

A pwaro? Not a taggert? Oh goodness, now we're talking.

Alexander Sunderland-Bragg says:

what about a youth hostel isn't that the UK and Europe's cheapest hotels/accommodation.

gurrrn says:

Lenny Henry advertised Premier Inn, not Travelodge.

allways28 says:

the coffin hotels in tokyo sound fun, and they kinda are, and they are a bit cheaper than normal hotels, but they also have shitty curfews so we didnt use them much.

Redexn says:

David Mitchell's vocabulary never ceases to impress.

fridaythe14th says:

I guess if you were bringing a date to a hotel for one reason or another (probably not a good reason), you wouldn't want "cheap" to be in the name, but both "express" and "nicer than you'd think" works.

quosmo1 says:

"nasty horrible lovely burger" sums up exactly how i feel when i eat fast food lol

Stan Dando says:

I agree, and love the writing, but would like to insist that its pronounced PoiROT not POIrot. Its not pronounced poi 'roT', that would be a travesty and youd need to wear a bell under your chin in punnishment. But of course, French references are too common in English, and frankly I find them a bit passe.

ghostmadlittlemiss says:

So apparently I commented on this 4 years ago. I presume it was when I was getting my eyes lasered (a gift from my grandparents) as that was the last time I stayed in one of those hotels. Even they're out of my budget now. Hostels or a very cheap B & B. Otherwise, I stay at home.
