The site was unveiled to Michael Fallon, Government Minister for Business and Innovation, and East Surrey MP Sam Gyimah on Friday (March 14).

Mr Gyimah said: “BLOC Hotels is just the kind of entrepreneurial vision Government policy should support, an innovative concept, harnessing the best of modern technology, to deliver a unique customer experience”,
