A number of UK hotels are offering holidaymakers extra perks such as free room upgrades or complimentary alcohol, as part of a new discounts scheme. The Hospitality Professionals Association (HOSPA) has launched the venture, as the hospitality industry continues to struggle during the coronavirus pandemic. The #SleepOvertoHelpTurnover scheme works a bit like the Eat Out to Help Out scheme, in that it's a 'two-way' win; hotels get customers, customers get discounts.
However, unlike Eat Out to Help Out, this venture isn't associated with the government. Perks on offer can include complimentary meals, free nights, complimentary wine or champagne, free room upgrades, free parking, or even half-price cocktails.Luxury hotel (Image: iStockphoto)
A number of hotels have already signed up and unveiled some discounts. Some of the deals on offer so far include:
- The Royal Lancaster London is offering free suite upgrades if you book a deluxe room from Thursday to Sunday until the 30th November 2020.
- Cedar Manor in the Lake District will offer a complimentary bottle of Prosecco if you reference #SleepOvertoHelpTurnover when you book.
The deal is valid until the 30th November 2020.
- Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa in Warwickshire is offering half-priced cocktails.
- The Draycott Hotel by Mantis in London has a number of perks including free upgrades, early check-in and late check-out, as well as complimentary tea, champagne or hot chocolate.
To claim, holidaymakers will need to reference #SleepOvertoHelpTurnover when booking a stay at their chosen hotel. At the moment a handful of hotels across the UK are taking part, but the scheme expects more to sign up in the coming weeks. You can find out more, and see the full list of participating hotels, on the HOSPA website.
