BRIDLINGTON hoteliers have blasted claims that the credit crunch will result in a boom in domestic tourism.
The East Yorkshire town of Bridlington has traditionally been a tourism hotspot, but Glenn Holmes, president of the town's hotel and guest house association, said there are still plenty of spare beds this year.
He told Destination UK: "It's been a very slow start to the season. There are reports everywhere that the downturn in the economy will mean more people taking their holidays in the UK, but we've seen no evidence of that here. I believe a lot of it is just media hype."
