Premier Inn and Whitbread restaurants will say a huge thank you to Forces heroes on Remembrance Sunday (10 November) by offering a free breakfast to uniformed military personnel and veterans who are guests of its hotels. The offer is exclusive to Premier Inn Forces’ heroes who are staying overnight in any one of the chain’s 800 hotels on Saturday 9 November, ahead of the commemoration.

To redeem the offer, personnel who are staying as guests of the hotel company must simply be identifiable to breakfast hosts through their uniforms or, in the case of veterans, their medals. 

Premier Inn owner Whitbread also recently announced that part of its restaurants’ business has collaborated with Blue Light Card to provide a 25% discount on food ordered from the main restaurant menu for those who work for the Armed Forces. To find out more, click here

Says Simon Jones, managing director of Premier Inn and Restaurants UK: ’The UK’s Armed Forces do us proud on a daily basis, so we are delighted to treat Forces heroes guests to a free breakfast this Remembrance Sunday as a small token of our appreciation. We are also thrilled to reveal our new partnership with Blue Light Card – meaning that those in the Armed Forces, alongside a host of other people who dedicate their lives to helping others, can tuck in to a hearty discount at selected restaurants up and down the country all year round.’

Whitbread’s commitment to the Armed Forces is part of its Force for Good programme. The company also recently announced a new Armed Forces recruitment scheme to help veterans get back into work and to make it easier for spouses and partners of serving personnel to find jobs.
