Guests at Premier Inn hotels will need to ensure that they carry a passport or proof of identity on them if they are a Non-UK or Non-Commonwealth citizen in order to successfully check in.
The hotel chain adheres to the Hotel Records Order 1972, which requires all guests over the age of 16 to provide proof of identity, nationality and place of next location upon check-in.
Overseas guests, excluding Republic of Ireland and Commonwealth citizens, will be asked to complete a registration form and provide the number and place of issue of their passport or identity card, even if they have lived in the UK for a number of years.
Other acceptable forms of identification include a driving licence, ID card or police warrant card.
The procedure does not apply for UK citizens but all countries operate a similar system and some may require you to hand over your passport to be held by the hotel.
