Hotels are under no obligation to contract with our providers but may recognise a commercial benefit from this arrangement. The decision regarding hotel staff is the responsibility of the hotel and not the Home Office.

The use of hotels is a short-term solution, and we continue to work hard with local authorities to increase the supply of dispersal accommodation, which provides a better result for local communities, the individuals seeking asylum.
