Eproductive delighted that hotels will reopen on 17th May

Our hospitality clients’ hotels have been closed to all except key workers and vulnerable people since early January, and have been under some level of restrictions, including the tier system, since October last year.

But following the Prime Minister’s announcement that the planned easing of lockdown rules around indoor hospitality will be going ahead, we are delighted that hotels will be opening their doors again to people staying for leisure from Monday 17th May.

Hotels reopening in England and Wales will join those in Scotland, which have been allowed to be open since 26th April. Hotels in Northern Ireland are due to reopen on 24th May.

Janet Gray, Head of Client Services – Hospitality at Eproductive, said: “It’s great news that hotels in England and Wales will be reopening fully on 17th May. All of our clients are really looking forward to receiving guests again in their hotels. We have welcomed new clients aboard in the last few months who haven’t used our EPS people management system while fully open as they joined us during lockdown, so we are looking forward to them making the most of the system.”

Chris Cowls MBE, Eproductive’s Chief Executive, added: “It’s fantastic that hotels in England and Wales can open their doors once again. It has been such a tough time across the hospitality sector over the last year, as lockdowns have been imposed then eased then imposed again, but this is, with any luck, the beginning of a full return to normal for the sector.”

Chris continued: “As people are allowed to go on holiday from 17th May and domestic holidays are going to be all the rage for a while, hotels will hopefully see bookings go through the roof. There is all this pent-up demand for a change of scenery and to go on holiday, so I actually think it’s a really exciting time to work in the hotel industry, and to work for a company that provides services to the hotel industry!”
