TRI: Hotels 2006 UK

Scottish hotels outperformed the other regions in 2005, according to the Hotels 2006 UK report from Tri Hospitality Consulting.

Scotland boosted average revenue per available room (revpar) by 14.1% to £48.26.

This was a far greater rate of growth than that seen in London, where revpar grew by 5.2% to £78.64 and in England, where hotels increased revpar by 2.7% to £41.82.

Average revpar in Wales dropped by 0.2% to £43.10.

Profitability (expressed in terms of income before fixed charges as a percentage of turnover) fell across all regions thanks to rising energy and labour costs.

  • The tables below present the range of responses from the lower quartile to the upper quartile of the data. A quartile is one of three values that divide a set of sorted data into four equal parts. The lower quartile cuts off the lowest 25% of data, the median cuts the data in half, and the upper quartile cuts off the highest 25%, or the lowest 75%.

The figures are compiled annually by Tri Hospitality Consulting.
