European hotel group Leonardo Hotels has expanded its portfolio in the UK to seven hotels with 1,048 bedrooms.
The 80-venue-strong company has acquired five Scottish properties from Portland Hotels.
The Scottish expansion will see the company grow its presence in the nation’s capital as well as develop its portfolio in Glasgow, Perth and Aberdeen.
Portland Hotels will add 536 additional bedrooms across Scotland and will take Leonardo’s presence in Edinburgh to 445 bedrooms, joining the Leonardo Royal which was acquired in October last year.
The newly acquired portfolio will join the Leonardo Hotels family and will be integrated into the wider Leonardo portfolio, which comprise over 80 hotels after the recent acquisition.
Together with Leonardo Hotel London Heathrow Airport, Leonardo’s portfolio in the UK will grow to seven hotels with 1,048 bedrooms.
Daniel Roger, managing director of Leonardo Hotels Europe, said: “When we entered the market in the UK two years ago, we made it our goal to further expand our portfolio and strengthen the name recognition of the Leonardo Hotels brand. The purchase of Portland Hotels underscores this. I am convinced that our guests will love and appreciate this expansion of our offerings in key destinations across Scotland”.
