Last week, Whitbread said in a results announcement that its sales had been boosted by its Premier Inn hotel chain. Sales across the Whitbread group were up 7.6 per cent over the 13 weeks to 3 June.

Costa Coffee sales rose 8.5 per cent, and sales in its four restaurant chains increased by 3.6 per cent.
