The new mid-market hotel and the adjacent 172-bedroom upscale Hilton Bournemouth, which will launch in a 13-storey block with 15 apartments in the winter, are owned by London-based developer THAT Group, whose majority share holding is held by Ray Kelvin, the founder and chief executive of fashion brand Ted Baker. Both hotels will be managed by Hilton Worldwide.
Located in an eight-storey building, the Hampton will feature business and fitness centres, a snack area and a bar. It joins a portfolio of more than 30 Hampton hotels in the UK.
Jason Davies, hotel manager, Hampton by Hilton Bournemouth, said the hotel's central location is "ideal" for making the most of the city and its many attractions.
"We are situated less than 500 metres away from the Bournemouth International Centre, which hosts a variety of conferences, exhibitions and performances, and the hotel is the same distance from the city's beautiful gardens, which hark back to the Victorian era of horticulture."
Hampton by Hilton is one of 12 brands operated by Hilton Worldwide and today numbers more than 2,020 properties in 16 countries.
