The UK Group of Hotels, which includes a number of boutique properties, has been placed into administration in a bid to restructure its banking facilities.
The group, which is the parent company of The Hotel Collection, appointed corporate finance advisor Duff & Phelps on August 4.
“UK Group of Hotels has been placed into administration to assist the restructuring of banking facilities. None of the subsidiaries of the parent company are affected by this process and all hotels will continue their day to day operations as normal.
“All staff will retain their roles, existing bookings will be honoured and new bookings taken with no affect to customers’ statutory rights, as well as all supplier relationships continuing as previously,” A Duff & Phelps statement said.
