Restaurants will also see a phased reopening, with interim measures including a £4.99 grab-and-go breakfast box containing porridge, a muffin, juice and fruit available to guests.

Last month Premier Inn announced a shake up of its room rate products in the light of uncertainty caused by the coronavirus crisis, with two new rate choices giving “added flexibility to guests making future post-lockdown travel plans, as well as those with existing bookings”.

Commenting on the news Diversey’s Head of the UK and Ireland Johan ten Berge said:

“We are delighted to have worked with Premier Inn to develop its new enhanced Premier Inn CleanProtect cleaning promise. The enhanced cleaning procedures have been developed in line with the recommendations of the World Health Organisation and the European Centre for Disease Control, as well as UK government guidance, and our products are used in conjunction with medical-grade systems.

“As global cleaning and hygiene specialists, we believe Premier Inn CleanProtect provides the best possible hotel environment for guests and we are proud to support this important initiative.”
