Premier Inns has become the first UK hotel chain to open 500 hotels across the country, with the opening of its latest hotel in Bournemouth in the south of England.

The 98-room Premier Inn Bournemouth Central opened last week, Premier Inn managing director Patrick Dempsey says.

“We’re delighted to be the first UK hotel chain to reach the landmark of 500 hotels nationwide and look forward to welcoming guests to enjoy a good night,” he says.
