Premier Inn scooped the prestigious title of Which? Travel Brand of the Year at the annual Which? Awards yesterday, 26th May.
With over 700 sites and 60,000 rooms across the UK, Premier Inn has been declared Travel Brand of the Year, beating competition from Singapore Airlines, Norwegian, Trailfinders and Voyages Jules Verne.
The annual awards ceremony, now in its tenth year, celebrates brands that succeed because they put consumers at the heart of their business. The Which? Award winners are chosen by Which? experts based on research, testing and feedback from Which? members, and the general public throughout the year – with Premier Inn's consistent delivery of value for money, cleanliness, comfort and customer satisfaction helping to secure its place as the UK's favourite travel brand.
At Premier Inn, customers are always ensured friendly service, affordable prices, luxurious Hypnos beds and a wide range of food choices so they are never far away from a great night's sleep and a brilliant stay in a convenient location.
Chief Marketing Officer Mark Fells, who was there to collect the award, said of the win: "We’re delighted to be awarded the prestigious Travel Brand of the Year accolade. It's testament to the hard work, and warmth of our 19,000 team members in the UK, who make Premier Inn such a welcoming place for our guests.
"We would like to thank both the Which? members and the general public who had a say in the awards, as well as the loyal guests that we welcome back week after week . Being recommended by Which? is a fabulous endorsement of our teams and our hotels, and we hope the Which award will encourage even more new guests to experience a stay at Premier Inn ."
The announcement adds to what has already been a successful year for the UK’s most loved hotel chain, where earlier this month, nine out of ten of Premier Inn hotels achieved a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Premier Inn was also named the UK's top-rated hotel chain for 2015, according to the Which? UK Hotel Chains report.
