Awards

We have won many awards over the years for all areas of our business, including being ranked in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for and Britain’s Top Employers.

Premier Inn has scooped up the award for Best Leisure and Best Budget Hotel Chain. Each award is the result of the hard work our teams put in on a daily basis to achieve the consistent high quality people have come to expect of our brands.
