Claridge’s is offering free accommodation for up to 40 doctors, nurses and other key staff during the Coronavirus pandemic – just days after it closed its doors for the first time in its 200-year history, as part of the national lockdown.

The luxury hotel in Brook Street will be providing breakfast and dinner as well as daily packed meals for more than 500 NHS workers and community support teams across London via Meal Force.

Paddy McKillen, co-owner of the Maybourne Hotel Group, said: “Just as it has in the past world wars, Claridge’s has a duty to step up and support the people of London. Teams from all our hotels have volunteered, and we are honoured to help and support the dedicated NHS workers at this critical time. We are forever in their debt.”

The group is also looking at rolling out the service to sister hotels, The Connaught and The Berkeley.
