Hotels across the UK have launched a new scheme similar to Chancellor Rishi Sunak's Help Out To Help Out initiative.

The "Sleep Over to Help Turnover" plan will include free room upgrades, as well as complimentary food and drink.

Although it isn't linked to the government, it is believed a number of hotels have already signed up to encourage Brits to book rooms.

Guests will be given free room upgrades, booze and meals, with complimentary nights and other perks offered by the hotels.

It was launched by Hospitality Professionals Association (HOSPA) who are trying to encourage the public to engage with hotels.

Around five hotels have signed up to the scheme with the hopes of more following.

The following hotels which are part of the scheme at this current moment are:

  • The Royal Lancaster, London
  • Billesley Manor Hotel and Spa, Warwickshire
  • Hothorpe Venues, Leicestershire
  • Draycott Hotel, London
  • Cedar Manor, Windermere

Guests will be offered a number of great perks in the hotel, including complimentary parking and free WiFi upgrades.

Speaking about the initiative, the HOSPA said: "The scheme's overriding purpose is to encourage the public to continue engaging with hotels beyond the summer months and into autumn and winter – helping to prolong the recovery boost provided by #EatOutToHelpOut and to offset the latest measures.

"Looked at as a two-way initiative, #SleepOverToHelpTurnover seeks to encourage hoteliers to incentivise potential guests by offering discounts or extras, such as supplementary meals, additional nights, bottles of wine, free WiFi upgrades, complimentary parking, half-price cocktails and more to reward those who engage with the scheme and display their support for the hospitality industry."
