Enjoy a stay at Derwen College.
When you stay at Hotel 751 you support Derwen College learners on their training journey.
Stay at Hotel 751 – the first Premier Inn training centre of its kind in the country. In 2019 it opened its doors for room bookings.
At Hotel 751 students learn housekeeping and reception skills while accessing invaluable work experience placements at local Premier Inn hotels. The reception area, three en-suite bedrooms and linen room creates a real work setting for our learners.
This amazing training facility first opened in 2017. Enabling students to access industry standard training in hospitality, the skills they learn here helps to improve the chance of gaining employment after college.
The aim of Hotel 751 is for learners to complete their training and secure a work placement at their local Premier Inn when they return to their home area.
Partnership work between Derwen College, Premier Inn and Novus Property Solutions enabled Hotel 751’s development.
Premier Inn and Derwen College have worked together since 2013. Early discussions resulted in the first Premier Inn training room opening at Derwen in September 2014. The converted room allowed students to familiarise themselves with Premier Inn’s routine before they started work placements at local branches. Consequently this helped to maximise work experience opportunities.
Hotel 751 however has taken the training facilities to a higher level. Walk into reception and you are transported to a genuine hotel setting.
