Compass Hospitality signs 10th UK hotel

Thai-based Compass Hospitality Group has signed its 10th hotel in the UK after taking over the management of the 46-bedroom Best Western Plus Milford hotel near Leeds.

This is the sixth hotel partnership between Compass Hospitality and Seacare Hospitality, with Compass as the hotel operator and Seacare as the new owner. Both companies also partnered in the acquisition of the Big Sleep's three hotels in Cardiff, Cheltenham and Eastbourne, the Victoria hotel in Chadderton and the Columba Hotel Inverness.

The hotel features the Watermill Restaurant & Bar, deriving its name from a working water wheel inside the premises.

In addition to a portfolio of 33 managed hotels in Asia, Compass Hospitality's properties in the UK are located in Shrewsbury, Halifax, Cardiff, Cheltenham, Eastbourne, Nottingham, Oxford, Manchester and Inverness.

Lim Chye Teen, chief executive of Seacare Hospitality, said: "Our latest hotel acquisition further improves our geographic connectivity in the UK and offers a greater choice to our guests in terms of destinations and lifestyle preferences. We are pleased with Compass Hospitality's performance in our five hotels in Cardiff, Cheltenham, Eastbourne, Manchester and Inverness, and we are confident that our hotel in Leeds will do well too."

Compass Hospitality's president and chief executive Harmil Singh added: "Compass Hospitality enjoys our partnership with Seacare Hospitality. Both of us have made tremendous progress in our respective businesses, tapping into the tourism and economy of the UK. Opportunities abound and Compass Hospitality will remain selective in identifying choice hotels with our partners for acquisition and management."
