UK hotel industry remains strong

Revenue per available room (revpar) has increased by over four percentage points year-on-year for UK hotels, reaching £60.29 in June, according to TRI Hospitality Consulting.

Average room rates rose 4.7 percentage points to £77.51, whilst occupancy dropped slightly to 77.8%. Room rate increased by nearly five percentage points to £94.55 year-on-year.

Revpar for London hotels was up 6.5 percentage points to £80.62, while provincial hotels enjoyed a climb of 3.1 percentage points to £51.69 despite a slip in occupancy.

Director of TRI David Bailey said: "The results show that the UK hotel industry had strong, above inflation, levels of growth. During 2004, occupancy levels climbed back to previous peaks and we expect 2005 to be marked mostly by room rate increases."

TRI examined 488 hotels, the majority rated as three- or four-star.
