Premier Inn bans vuvuzelas to maintain Good Night Guarantee
With the sound of vuvuzelas creating as much hype as the World Cup itself, £29-a-night Premier Inn has taken the move to ban the horns to ensure guests get a good night’s sleep throughout the tournament.
Vuvuzelas, the traditional South African horn commonly blown by fans at football matches, are being criticised by players, commentators and TV networks for creating an unbearable noise. The UK’s biggest budget hotel chain, Premier Inn, is welcoming football fans to their hotels to enjoy England’s next match against Algeria on Friday at 8.30pm, but will be banning all vuvuzelas to limit the disruption caused to other guests.
Spokesperson Steve Conway says, “We appreciate the tradition of the vuvuzela, but our Good Night Guarantee promises all guests will have a comfortable stay. By banning vuvuzela's from our hotels, we hope that all our guests will be able to enjoy their stay in peace.”
The Good Night Guarantee from Premier Inn promises guests a good night’s sleep in quality rooms with comfortable surroundings and friendly service - if not completely satisfied, Premier Inn will refund the guest the cost of their room.
