Laterooms is a hotel reservation website, that provides discounted accommodation throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, and the rest of the World. It allows users to search, find and book a hotel in a cheaper and desirable price.
Launched in Salford, Greater Manchester, by brothers: Steven, Paul and Tony Walsh in 1999. The website is originally made as a simple directory, listing hotels but was changed in 2002; allowing users to book hotels online. First Choice Holidays plc, bought the company in December 2006, in a deal worth 120 million British Pounds. In 2007, First Choice Holidays merged with the British leisure travel group, TUI Travel plc to form the TUI Travel Group.
It was in 2010 when Laterooms moved to a new head office at the Peninsula Building in Manchester, along with sister companies: AsiaRooms.com and Hotels-London.co.uk. And as of 2015, TUI announced the restructure of its brand, which makes Laterooms to be sold off, soon after–on the October of the same year (2015), Laterooms was sold to Cox & Kings for 8.2 million British Pounds.
What people are saying
I’ve been reading a lot of reviews for Laterooms, and I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews coming from disappointed customers, who seemed to be unhappy with the service that Laterooms has given them. These includes customer service rudeness and negligence and other issues that seems to be giving the company an unreliable impression. However, I’ve been reading some positive reviews as well, here are some of the positive reviews that I’ve read and gathered.
“Booked my room through laterooms.com and wasn’t sure if I had done the right thing. However when I saw my room I was gob smacked at how good it was, way more than I had expected I’m a seasoned london visitor and I’ve stayed in some places that cost me alot more and I got alot less. I would recommend The Park Grand to anyone, just fantastic.”
—Nick Dexter (London, Great Britain)
“quick and easy site to use. great choice of hotels and fantastic prices before booking I phoned the hotel direct to see if they could match price they wouldn’t so well done late rooms will continue to book in future as we have never been disappointed.”
—Jane Badger (London, Great Britain)
“I would honestly say that you my friend should consider Late Rooms, every time if you want peace-of-mind, good rates, exactly as you choose, whether two, three,four or five star.
The description of the hotels are honest and accurate. My wife and myself never go anywhere else, from hotels in Cardiff, London, or a guest House in Bath, we have never been underwhelmed. Good luck and get your Late Room.”
—Len Bray (London United Kingdom

Based on the reviews, I think it’s safe to say that Laterooms.com still is a good and fully functional travel website, that helps travellers in finding the best place to stay in. As for the complaints given by their customers; I think it’ll be fair for the company to fix those issues and assist their customers regarding their complains and give them a better compensation and consideration.
