Best Western GB has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Great Britain by 10 already this year, as it looks for further growth before the end of 2019.
The group, which represents over 260 independent hotels, recently brought Stonecross Manor Hotel, into the BW Signature Collection.
This growth builds on last year’s record year, with 2018 representing the highest number of annual activations and a second consecutive year of growth of hotel numbers.
Since January, the group’s portfolio has grown with the addition of a number of independent hotels to its collection, including: Murrayshall Country House Hotel and Golf Club – its third Scottish BW Premier Collection hotel – Best Western Buckingham Palace Road, its 20th hotel in London; Stonecross Manor Hotel, BW Signature Collection; The Putney Hotel, BW Signature Collection; The Wild Pheasant Hotel & Spa, BW Signature Collection; Rossett Hall Hotel, BW Signature Collection; Sure Hotel, Newcastle; Three Ways House Hotel, BW Signature Collection and The Midland Hotel, Sure Hotel Collection.
The new brands are in addition to Best Western acquisition of WorldHotels in February 2019, which added five luxury London properties to its portfolio, The Washington Mayfair Hotel; The Caesar Hotel; Royal Garden Hotel; Courthouse Hotel London and Courthouse Hotel Shoreditch.
Rob Paterson, CEO at Best Western GB, said: “It has been a great first half of the year for us, and 2019 is shaping up to be our most ambitious year of growth in recent history. Already activating ten hotels is testament to the work my team has been doing, and the investment we’ve made into our organisation to help support the growth of independent hospitality across GB.”
