Budget Hotels are always part of a large ‘branded’ Hotel Group, offering clean and comfortable en-suite facilities, 24-hour reservations and a consistent level of facilities.

New Owner/Selling your business? Please note, if and when an establishment is sold, participation in the scheme does not automatically continue. Please contact our helpline on 0845 300 6996 if you are selling your business or if you are a new owner to find out the rules regarding change of ownership.

Please be aware that there are no separate designators for Budget Hotels, although this sector is sometimes thought of as Travel Accommodation, which tends to feature more international brands like Campanile, Express by Holiday Inn, Premier Inn, Travel Lodge, InnKeepers Lodge, Days Inn, Ibis, Sleep Inn. Internal brand standards therefore are well measured.
