Hotel chain AccorHotels which owns Ibis, Mecure and Sofitel hotels among others, runs a fabulous last minute hotel promotion called ‘Happy Mondays’ for weekend hotel rooms in the UK and Ireland.

Every Monday and Tuesday you can book hotel rooms at heavily discounted prices for the coming weekend and the following one.

This is a recent improvement. Previously you were limited to bookings for the coming weekend only.


-Bookings will still earn Le Club Accor points and count towards status

-These prices are ‘room only’ deals

-Not all hotels in the AccorHotels chain will participate on every date


£25-Ibis province hotels

£40-Novotel and Mecure provincial hotels, ibis London hotels and selected Mecure and Novotel London hotels

£60-Mecure, Novotel and ibis Styles in London

£90-Pullman hotels


You can either book via the Happy Mondays booking page.

Alternatively, you can visit the Accor homepage.

This will then provide a drop down ‘menu’

Click add a preferential code

Use preferential code MONDAY


I would always go via the main Happy Mondays booking page, however sometimes you will find this page hasn’t been updated on a Monday. If that is the case, use the promo code as outlined above.


This is the top last-minute hotel deal available in the UK. The recently added ability to book for the coming 2 weekends means that there is fantastic value to be had, particularly in London where you can find the likes of the Novotel London Tower Bridge for only £60. This is a valuable option to have in your booking arsenal.
