Swallow chases leisure trend

The demand for leisure clubs has caused Swallow Hotels to put the five of its properties that are unable to feature such facilities on the market.

Peter Catesby, managing director of Swallow Hotels, told Caterer: "Our guests expect to stay in a Swallow with a leisure centre. It is most important for the corporate residential training market."

The hotels for sale are: the 85-bedroom Swallow King's Head Hotel, Darlington, Co Durham; the 66-bedroom Danum Swallow Hotel, Doncaster, South Yorkshire; the 78-bedroom Bruce Swallow Hotel, East Kilbride; the 93-bedroom Swallow Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne; and the 63-bedroom Swallow Hotel, Wakefield, West Yorkshire.

The five hotels are all three star and are expected to fetch about £12.5m. Agents for the sale have yet to be appointed.

In a trading statement for th period starting 1 October 1995, parent group Vaux said revenue per room at Swallow was up 12.5%.
