Strong outlook for U.K. hotels as investment volumes increase

by Andrea Zander

U.K. hotel investment volumes reached £1.70 billion (€1.97 billion/$2.33 billion) in the first half of 2021, across 59 deals, representing an increase of 135.2 percent compared to the previous six-month period (July-December 2020), according to Savills. While this continues to be below the pre-pandemic five-year average of £2.43 billion (€2.82 billion/$3.33 billion) for the same period, the positive momentum demonstrates the robustness of the sector and emphasizes the green shoots that are being seen in terms of the U.K. hotel investment landscape.

Regional U.K. assets accounted for 56.9 percent of investment volumes and 78 percent share of transactions, with Blackstone’s acquisition of Bourne Leisure accountable for a large portion of H1 2021 volumes. Total investment volumes in London reached £732.1 million (€850 million/$1 billion) in the first half of 2021, down 46 percent compared with the historic five-year average.
