The continental breakfast is a product of the cultural exchanges between Europe and the U.S. A watered-down version of the heavy breakfasts that dominated tables in these continents, the continental breakfast has become a standard meal in most hotels around the world. Slate’s L.V. Anderson asks an interesting question: “What makes a continental breakfast…well, ‘continental?’” Depending on who you ask, “continental” can either refer to mainland Europeans or the Thirteen Colonies that formed the United States. In this case, however, the first definition applies.

Salty Town, Sweet Lodgings Even if the town is, figuratively, full of salt, local lodgings can’t get any sweeter. Cheap hotels in Northwich are readily available. Happy Guests Lodge, located on the outskirts of Northwich, will keep your expenses to a minimum by providing the most number of amenities at the lowest rates. Time it right and off season a single room can be had for as little as £40. That’s a bargain considering you can get free computer and Internet access, local gym membership, and breakfast included. From there, you could venture out to Warrington, which is just a 15 minute car ride away. Have a pleasant stroll through town, head out for some retail therapy, or drop by any of the designated nature reserves. The options are endless."

Situated between two major cities, Warrington is in a strategic position to provide low-cost lodgings to city or seaside tourists. You can get a room for as little as £40, which is a bargain, considering that the average nightly rates in major cities start at £70.
