Premier Inn owner Whitbread has seen sales at Costa Coffee bounce back, but said conditions remain challenging for its hotels and restaurants.

The group yesterday cheered a “good start” to its financial year for the coffee chain as it posted a 2.6 per cent rise in like-for-like sales for the 13 weeks to 2 June, marking a recovery after sales were hit in the previous quarter.

It said Premier Inn like-for-like sales lifted by 2.1 per cent in a “weaker-than-expected hotel market”.
