Premier Inn Managing Director Simon Ewins said:
“We’re gearing up for an exciting year in Scotland with a variety of new hotels ranging from a 249-bed mega-hotel in one of Glasgow’s most iconic central locations to our most Northerly site in the UK in Thurso. From its world-class cities to jaw-dropping Highlands, Scotland’s tourist offer is hard-to-beat and we’re pleased to help make it even easier for both leisure and business travellers to enjoy the country affordably”.
Premier Inn is opening 37 hotels during the course of the calendar year UK-wide, comprising around 4,000 rooms.
Perhaps no-where will benefit more keenly from the job creation than more rural communities, many of which are traditionally associated with more limited year-round employment opportunities. When Premier Inn opens in a new location, up to 80 per cent of new jobs go to former NEETS (people not previously in education, employment or training).
