Hotel industry thriving in the South East
Tuesday June 18th, 2019
Investment in South East hotels reached £1.36n in 2018, a 39 per cent hike on the previous year, according to Savills.
The new research found the region was the most active outside of London, accounting for 20 per cent of total investment in UK hotels.
The news follows the announcement by Chewton Glen Hotel and Spa, a historic Hampshire hotel that it has boosted revenues and profits in its latest financial year.
Located in 130 acres of woodland, gardens and parkland stretching from the edge of the New Forest National Park to the Solent coastline, Chewton Glen can trace its roots back to the 1700s.
Constructed in the 1730s the hotel is thought to be the inspiration for Captain Frederick Marryat author of Children of the New Forest and acquaintance of Charles Dickens.
