A spokesperson told the PA news agency: “As one of London’s largest hotel brands, with 78 hotels across the capital, our hotels have literally sold out in all locations in central London and close to a station.

“We have limited availability at our hotels in Greater London.

“With almost 100% of the number of visitors to our website this week, people from all corners of the country are trying to fly to London over the next few days to pay their respects to the Queen.

“We are gearing up for one of our busiest bank holiday weekends in London.

“Our hotel teams are working round the clock to make sure they are well stocked and have ordered additional breakfast supplies, as we expect customers to start their day in a traditional Full English language. Will do with breakfast so they can last all day.”

Thousands are expected to line the streets of the capital during the funeral at Westminster Abbey.

London-based travel company HotelPlanner said the average occupancy rate at hotels in the city is “close to 95%”, about a fifth higher than normal for this time of year.

The cheapest room at Park Plaza County Hall – one of the closest hotels to Westminster Abbey – costs £999 on Sunday nights, compared to £268 seven days later.

Crowne Plaza Albert Embankment is charging £620 on the eve of the funeral.

This is almost two and a half times more than on Sunday 25 September, when the price is £252.

A room at Novotel Waterloo costs £500 on Sundays and £241 a week later.
