Activities:

Maybourne Hotel Group owns three of London’s most luxurious and historic hotels - Claridge’s, the Berkeley hotel and the Connaught hotel. All are AA Top 200 hotels, with five red stars each, and each houses a Michelin-star restaurant run by Gordon Ramsay Holdings.

The company was known as the Savoy Group until January 2005, when it was acquired by Irish property investment group Quinlan Private. It was renamed after Quinlan sold on the Savoy hotel and Simpson’s-in-the-Strand restaurant in the same month.

Quinlan Private, which was set up by former Dublin tax inspector Derek Quinlan in 1989, owns some 150 office blocks, shopping centres, car parks and hotels in Europe and North America.

Maybourne is its primary hotel concern, but it also owns a handful of Four Seasons hotels in Dublin, Milan, Budapest and Prague. Hotels account for 21% of its €5b-worth of property assets.
