A cancellation reference will be given and should be retained as proof of cancellation.
If you cancel a reservation after 1pm on the day of arrival (including any ?no shows?) and have not already paid for the room in advance you will be charged a cancellation charge equivalent to one night's accommodation per room booked and for any meals and other extras booked for the first day of your stay.

? For 15 rooms or more, we?ll need a 50% deposit 28 days before arrival and the balance 14 days before arrival. These payments are non-refundable, but you can cancel your booking free of charge if you do so before we take a deposit.
Our right to cancel
We may cancel your reservation at any time with immediate effect by giving you written notice (which includes email) if:
you do not pay us when you are required to do so; or you break the contract between us in any other material way. If we cancel your reservation where you are at fault, we reserve our legal rights in respect of your breach of contract.
Events outside our control
We may also cancel your reservation if an event outside of our control (including industrial action, explosion, fire, flooding, and failure of power and/or water supplies or emergency evacuation) means that we are unable to make your room available to you. In this case we will contact you to let you know as soon as possible and:
if you have already paid for your room, we will refund your payment to you; or if you have not yet paid for your room, you will not have to make any payment to us. Save as set out above, we will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations that is caused by an event outside of our control.

Claims must be made within 7 days of the end of the stay to which your claim relates.
To make a claim you should raise your complaint with the team at the hotel who will advise of the process. If you did not raise your complaint at the hotel or were unable to do so, you must contact us through our web form, or for reservations which were not made online, by calling Premier Inn Guest Relations on 0333 003 0025. If your room was booked as part of a group booking, the person who made the booking on behalf of the group must make the claim. If you room was booked through a tour operator, you must make your claim to the tour operator.
You will need to provide details of the Premier Inn hotel in which you stayed, the dates of your stay, the nights for which you wish to claim a refund and the reason(s) why you did not have a great night's sleep on each of those nights.
Refunds will be made to the card you used when you paid for your room and are usually processed within 7 days. You will be asked to confirm receipt of your refund.
1. Our Good Night Guarantee does not apply where you do not have a great night's sleep due to circumstances that are beyond our reasonable control as hoteliers such as extreme weather conditions, fire, flood, lightning, earthquake, explosion, terrorism, war, civil disorder, epidemics, embargoes, labour disputes and power cuts.
2. You may not claim under our Good Night Guarantee if you have breached the terms and conditions applying to your booking for example by causing damage to our or to other guests property or by being abusive to our staff or to other guests during your stay.
3. We reserve the right to reject claims made by individuals who are abusing the Good Night Guarantee by making excessive claims. If an individual or any of the guests within their booking claims a refund for more than 50% of their stay on more than two occasions in any 12 month period, such claims will be deemed excessive save where we are satisfied that there is a good reason for the claims.
Please note that the Good Night Guarantee only applies to Premier Inn hotels and does not apply to stays at hub by Premier Inn. Back to top
