Better to Book direct with the hotels. If you find some good deal then you can go for booking through online Agencies.

Compare the price offered on the hotel website with online sites such as hotels.com, booking.com etc. Sometimes you can good deals on online sites, sometimes booking with the hotel is cheaper. It varies from hotel to hotel, time to time. You will have to check both.

It is always better to cross check the rates with different booking options available, but since i am from the same trade, so in my opnion if you book directly with the hotel, it is far better option as you can have direct communication with the hotel management and can have the correct rates.

Apart from that special discount schemes and off season discounts are also mentioned on the direct hotel websites from time to time.

Nowdays, many hotels and b&b's have their own online payment gateway system installed on their hotel websites, by which you can make direct online reservations and can easily make credit card payments and have instant reservations directly through hotel websites itself.

So, there is really no need to book via any third party online booking site, incase you can find a hotel selling online at better prices through their own website rather then through a third party website like the one mentioned by you booking.com and obviously through agent, the rates shall be higher as the agent takes the commission for each booking.

However, you have to differentiate which hotels are selling at net bookable rates and which hotels have over inflated price line to attract booking via third party websites or agents, (some hotels have deliberately inflated the prices on their own websites). Incase you can find a property which is showing a genuine bookable rate which is not over inflated and is giving you option to book online directly through their own website at good prices then it shall be the best option available.

Go with the website that gives you the best rates but if the price is the same it's always better to book directly with the hotel. We use this hotel price comparison website.
