Jersey To Get Another Premier Inn?
Premier Inn isn’t ruling out opening a second hotel in the island.
It’s as it tells us the newly opened one at Charing Cross is busier than predicted.
In the three months since Jersey’s Premier Inn opened, it’s owner – the Whitbread Group – says it’s performance ‘fills them with confidence’ in the island, but that ‘it’s too early to confirm’ whether more of its hotels could arrive:
“We are very pleased with how our Premier Inn hotel in St Helier is performing. The hotel is busier than we predicted it would be and the feedback from our guests has been very positive. Forward bookings for the autumn are looking strong too.
“Taken together, the performance of the St Helier hotel definitely fills us with confidence for the future. However, as Jersey is a new market for us, and the hotel has only been open for a months, it is too early to confirm whether we are looking at other sites on the island. If we do, we will certainly communicate our plans widely.” – Derek Griffin, Head of Acquisitions (London and South & East England) for Premier Inn & Restaurants.
