I was intrigued by a news item on the Beeb news site about a now elderly couple who have been living in a Travelodge motel for the past 22 years. Because one of them needs easy disabled access the Travelodge on the A1 fits the bill better than their own 1st floor flat in Sheffield.
By booking well in advance they pay £90 a week to stay there (£360 a month). It depends where you live but rent at that kind of price went the way of the pear around these parts some time ago.
I was intrigued too because thinking about it the couple would have few bills to pay. Electricity, heating, TV,water and cleaning would all be included and they would, I presume, be exempt from council tax also. If you are able to live in a single room like this then it almost sounds affordable compared to the rising costs of alternatives.
