Easyhotel UK expansion

28 Jun 2008 by BusinessTraveller

“Super-budget” hotel operator Easyhotel has announced a £60 million agreement with Eclipse Hotels to develop ten new properties over the next four years.

Eclipse already operates the Easyhotel Luton (see online news April 24) under a franchise agreement, along with the forthcoming Easyhotel Heathrow which is due for an October opening (see online news October 19, 2007).

Sameer Damji, managing director of Eclipse Hotels Group, said: “We are delighted to be playing a major role in Easyhotel’s future development plans and are particularly excited about our next opening at Heathrow in October as well as future plans for our third site, which we hope to open in Liverpool in early 2009.”

Aside from the Eclipse franchise, Easyhotel has three hotels already open in London (click here for a review of the brand’s Victoria property), as well as an agreement with Nakheel Hotels to rollout the Easyhotel brand across the Middle East and Africa (see online news May 8).
