Hilton Worldwide told Caterer and Hotelkeeper: "Hilton Worldwide is fully committed to the Hilton Ageas Bowl - Southampton, having signed a franchise agreement with Rose Bowl in 2012. We will continue to support the property owners, along with all relevant stakeholders, who we understand are currently working to appoint a new contractor for the project."

The local council, Eastleigh, has reportedly invested £38.5 in the project. Despite the delay to the completion of the hotel, Hampshire Cricket Club stated that the sporting ground will still host major events in 2014.

When completed, the hotel will overlook the cricket ground and feature a new 18-hole golf course.
