Premier Inn chiefs are investigating after ten hotel staff allegedly threw the boozy leaving do in the locked hotel, according to North Wales Live.
Hotel workers were accused of hugging and cheering at the Premier Inn at Holyhead, Anglesey, to mark one of the staff member’s last day.
Pictures appear to show hotel workers gathering together for a photo and seemingly not keeping to social distancing rules.
All Premier Inn hotels in Wales are currently closed as per Welsh Government guidance – and indoor gatherings are banned.
Under current rules in Wales, people are not allowed to socialise indoors or outdoors with anyone outside of their household.
However, people are allowed to exercise with one other person from one other household outdoors – provided they live locally.

A spokesperson for Premier Inn said: “Our Holyhead hotel is currently closed in line with current government guidance.
“We have clear safety procedures in place for our team members to follow.
“We are investigating the circumstances surrounding this gathering and speaking with the team members involved.”
Last week, students who claimed they were “bored” were caught partying and breaking Covid lockdown rules.
Officers were called to an address in Ormskirk, Lancashire, around 2.45am last Sunday – and found the revellers flouting lockdown to celebrate a birthday party.
Thought to be students from Edge Hill University, some of the Covid flouters fled the scene – climbing out of a window.
But the organiser – a 20-year-old girl – was given a £10,000 fixed penalty notice. Nine other revellers were given £800 Covid fines.
