I've used Laterooms.com a number of times to book hotels in the UK. I like the way the site displays 50 hotels at a time with room rates, star ratings and customer ratings as this makes it easy to narrow my search down and have a degree of confidence that low price doesn't mean low quality service.
I think the laterooms website must've been redesigned since the other reviews i've read here were originally written since it is now possible to book the hotels online or by phone - not just by sending an email as mentioned in some other reviews. This is a significant improvement in my opinion since it means i can get immediate confirmation of my bookings which is especially important when i'm looking for last minute bargains.
The site uses Google maps to show the locations of the hotels which i'm a fan of since they can be dragged with a mouse to see the surrounding areas which is better than the multimap approach of having to click an arrow and wait for the map to move. One improvement would be a print function on the maps.
This is a minor point however since I've had no problems over the 5 times I've used the site - overall, LateRooms should definitely be part of your strategic weaponry in the search for online hotel bargains :o)
A good beginning a bit more info on the site how safe it is to book whether you need to register to book etc would improve the useful ness of the review.
