A 103-bedroom mid-market Hampton by Hilton hotel is to be developed at a cost of £7m at Humberside Airport, following the signing of a franchise agreement with regional operator Nightel.
The property, which is being developed in conjunction with North Lincolnshire Council, supported by finance from a regional development fund, is expected to open in mid-2016. Located close to the existing Nightel Humber Hotel, adjacent to the A18, it will have a restaurant, bar and 24-hour fitness centre.
Paul Green, managing director of Nightel, said the hotel would create a quality of accommodation that is scarce in the Humber region.
"Signing the agreement is a real coup for us and speaks volumes about the standard of development we are bringing forward," he said.
Patrick Fitzgibbon, senior vice president, development, Europe & Africa, Hilton Worldwide, added: "Humberside Airport is a vibrant passenger and cargo hub, and home to the second largest heliport in the UK. Hampton by Hilton Humberside Airport will appeal to passengers travelling through the airport, and alleviate the growing need for quality, economy hotel accommodation in the wider Humber region."
The hotel will join a portfolio of 1,900 Hampton hotels across 16 counties, within Hilton Worldwide.
