The blaze started at 10.30pm on Wednesday last week and it took around 100 firefighters four hours to bring it under control, leaving most of the building in tatters.
Firefighters said dealing with the fire was a struggle due to a lack of water.
One lane of the M3 was closed southbound for a couple of hours between Junctions 4A ( Farnborough) and 5 ( Hook).
Police had intended to close the motorway in both directions due to smoke billowing across the carriageway, but called off their plans and all lanes had reopened last Thursday.
The boss of Welcome Break confirmed that the building was ‘ extensively’ damaged and will remain closed until further notice.
