In 2005, UK hotels boosted revenue per available room (revpar) by 2.9% to its highest level since 2001.
The growth stemmed from higher average room rates as occupancy fell slightly across the UK.
Regional hotels outperformed their counterparts in London, but the capital's hotels improved revpar in the face of falling occupancy by holding their rates, according to the Hotel Britain report from consultants PKF.
