Learn the Local Lingo with Jurys Inn

A Geordie or Scouse twang, Scottish burr, Irish brogue and Welsh lilt may be amongst the most recognisable and loved accents in the UK, but it’s staff at Jurys Inn hotels in Newcastle, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Dublin and Cardiff who often receive the most guest requests to decipher tricky translations.

To help guests navigate a new city this Spring without becoming tongue-tied, Jurys Inn is breaking down well-used regional sayings and equipping visitors with the right words to enjoy a weekend like a local.

Hotel staff at Jurys Inn Newcastle, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Dublin and Cardiff will be ready to answer questions and offer tips on local dialect and slang, plus share their favourite sayings on social, as they prove they know their Judy (Scouse for girlfriend) from their gadgie (Geordie for man) and owtelse (Northern English for anything else) guests are struggling with.


Here’s a few helpful phrases for your travels, that won’t leave you saying ye wha? (Scottish for pardon).

Jurys Inn Head of Marketing, Suzanne Cannon, said: ‘An underrated benefit of holidaying in the UK is that there’s no language barrier to worry about, but the reality is dialects even a few hours away can be difficult to grasp. To help our guests feel at home, we have recruited the help of our local teams to celebrate regional differences and assist guests with those colloquial conundrums.’

Learn the local lingo and make the most of Jurys Inn’s Spring Sale rates, offering 15%, 20% and 25% off the best available Room Only and B&B stay dates until Sunday 15 April 2018.
