Blackpool is dirtiest destination in UK, while Heathrow hotels are the cleanest

A plethora of stained sheets and smoky smells makes Blackpool the dirtiest destination in the UK, according to research from online reservations company

League tables for the dirtiest and cleanest hotels have been drawn up by after studying hotel ratings provided by more than two million guests worldwide.

In the dirty stakes, Blackpool is followed closely by Coventry and Wolverhampton, while the cleanest locations behind Colnbrook are Weybridge and Harrogate.

Andreas Klug, country manager for the UK for said: "It looks like Brits looking for a dirty weekend in every sense of the term should be heading to the north west. Blackpool's popularity as a holiday destination saw a resurgence as the staycation trend took hold a couple of years back, and it seems that the seaside spot has some catching up to do.

"The hotel ratings section of the site is a great platform for users to give honest and open feedback about their hotel experiences, and what's more, it gives the hoteliers themselves a great opportunity to learn from and improve their services in direct correlation with customer insight."

Globally, Japan topped the table for the cleanest accommodation, with Edinburgh leading the way for the UK in 49th position, followed by Manchester (56th) and London (70th).
