Premier Inn: “From Booking to Bed” - 30s

Months of coverage about quarantine hotels make this Premier Inn ad even more significant. The world has changed a lot since the brand's last work in 2018, so comfort and reliability are the key themes here. Thus director Ally Pankiw's film shows how families, couples, and business travellers are catered/cared for as lockdown restrictions ease.

The practical elements of the pandemic like face masks and plastic shields are integrated well, but they don't dominate the screen. This lets moments like an ill-conceived visit to a cat hotel set the tone, and helps create a sunny-side-up atmosphere that's been lacking from the hospitality and leisure sector for far too long.
