Furlong Hotels has launched a new company to expand its management business.
The group, which signed its first hotel management contract three years ago, launched the Bespoke Hotel Company last Thursday (1 July).
Furlong currently owns three hotels, including the Lygon Arms in the Cotswolds, and manages a further four properties. The Bespoke Hotel Company will now look for further management contracts both in London and in the four- and five-star markets outside the capital.
Robin Sheppard and David Coubrough will head the new company as managing director and chairman respectively, while owner Haydn Fentum will be executive director of both companies.
