Whitbread has announced that it will soon reach the milestone of 1000 new Premier Plus rooms located at its Premier Inn hotels.
According to the group, Premier Plus will reach the 1000 milestone by the first half of the year as “hundreds more rooms are converted into the enhanced concept with many more planned for the future”.
Premier Plus rooms – which are an upgraded version of the chain’s standard room – are in its own dedicated space of the hotel, and come with a mini-fridge and complimentary water, a Nespresso machine with coffee pods and a variety of tea bags, and an iron and ironing board.
The Plus rooms will also be available in many new hotels opening over the next six months, including London Tooting and Premier Inn’s upcoming opening in Oxford city centre, as well as converting existing standard rooms to the new style in a variety of locations such as Kendal, Plymouth and Inverness.
Simon Ewins, managing director at Premier Inn UK, said: “At Premier Inn we know choice is important for our guests’, so we’re delighted to give guests more choices when it comes to their room.
“Our team of sleep experts have worked hard to take everything guests love about our Standard Rooms and make them even better.”
He added: “Our Premier Plus rooms are perfect for when you want that little bit more from your stay – giving you that extra comfort, convenience and connectivity when travelling for business or leisure, and soon they will be in even more places across the UK.
“If you still want to enjoy our standard rooms, rest assured they’re still available across the UK offering guests a great night’s sleep in renown king-size beds.”
