Schoolgirl Roberta Sweet has been given the job of inspecting Premier Inn's new hotel in her city - and she's just 10 years old!

Roberta was appointed as the youngest hotel inspector ever after she wrote to the chain's chief operating officer, John Forrest, to say how pleased she was that they were opening a new hotel in hometown of Bath.

Her duties included checking the friendliness of the hotel staff, testing the bounciness of the beds as well as testing pillow softness and room cleanliness. Roberta also gave her opinions on the hotel's breakfast menu, which she has excitedly worked her way through.

Roberta was quoted in the Bath Chronicle commenting on her new job: "I am so excited to be the first ever junior hotel inspector for Premier Inn and I loved opening the new hotel in Bath.

"Testing bed bounciness was definitely the best part of the job!" Roberta gave the hotel 10 out of 10.

As a family brand, Premier Inn felt that Roberta would offer valuable feedback on the hotel and ensure that all their guests, no matter what age, can thoroughly enjoy their stay.

The general manager of the new hotel, Janet Cowley, said, "We really value Roberta's expertise as the newly appointed junior hotel inspector; she has a real passion for the hotel chain, so who better to test out our new hotel than Roberta, who will give us her upmost honest opinion – the only way kids do."

Premier Inn will now be appointing junior hotel inspectors across the country.
