Hotel chain MourHoutel has outlined plans to start work towards on at least 12 new hotels across the UK.
The company said it intended to find a dozen sites in the next six months, as it opened its first hotel in Nottingham.
Chairman Russell Allen said: “Our current development focus is to take advantage of the economic climate and the woes of developers to assemble an initial 12-15 strategic sites around London and in the main commercial centres across the UK.”
He added: “MourHotel is particularly favourable from a planning perspective in so far that we provide full-service elements in our hotels. As such, new-build developments are preferable, but for the right site close to arterial routes, airports, city centres or business parks we would certainly consider a conversion project.”
The first mourHotel is located in Sherwood Business Park, Nottingham, within easy reach of junction 27 on the M1.
