Staycations are back on the cards for those in England and Wales, with overnight stays now allowed (provided you're travelling with members of your own household).

However, this is limited to self-contained accommodation such as holiday parks, campsites and holiday cottages - but hotels and B&Bs are currently off the cards.

So, when are hotels due to reopen across the UK?

In England, the earliest date that hotels and B&Bs could reopen is May 17, as part of the next phase of the country's lockdown roadmap.

In Wales there's no fixed date, although authorities have said they will look at indoor hospitality from May 17 so it could be similar to England. Some hotels that can offer self-contained stays have reopened their doors already.

Hotels are due to be open in time for the spring bank holiday

As for Scotland, the earliest date for hotels reopening could be April 26, when overnight stays are due to be allowed and tourist accommodation able to reopen. (It's worth noting that Scotland has lifted its 'stay local' rule but overnight stays are still banned).

Meanwhile in Northern Ireland, the earliest hotels and other tourism accommodation could reopen is May 24 although this will be subject to a review nearer the time.

If hotels do reopen on those dates as planned, it could be the perfect excuse to head off on a mini break for the spring bank holiday (May 31) - and according to Tripadvisor there are already 20 UK destinations proving a hit with holidaymakers.
