The Rezidor Hotel Group has expanded its portfolio of hotels in the United Kingdom with the signing of two new hotels which are scheduled to open in 2013.

The two hotels are the Radisson Blu Hotel, Newcastle, which will have 170 rooms and the Park Inn Bournemouth which will feature 172 rooms.

The Radisson Blu Hotel, Newcastle will be one of the best-located hotels in town, with frontage on the central thoroughfare (Westgate Road) and adjacent to the main train station. Besides 170 rooms and suites featuring signature services such as free high speed internet access, the property will offer a restaurant, a bar, 400 sqm of conference space and a fitness centre. Parking will also be available.

Our portfolio of Radisson Blu hotels in the UK now comprises 17 properties in all major cities including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Liverpool, and Edinburgh. This clearly shows how important this home market is for our upper upscale brand, said Kurt Ritter, President & CEO of Rezidor.

Newcastle, located in Northern England on the River Tyne, is part of the sixth largest urban area in the UK. In addition to corporate travellers, the city attracts strong leisure demand thanks to its active nightlife, frequent events/conferences and popular football team.

The Park Inn Bournemouth will be located in the city centre, equidistant from the beach and the main train station (journey time to London by train is under two hours). Bournemouth International Centre (BIC) is also within walking distance, making the Park Inn a perfect choice for leisure and business travellers. Besides 172 rooms, the property will have a restaurant, a bar, a gym and meeting rooms. With a highly-visible, hilltop location, upper floor guest rooms will have sea views. The hotel is an integral part of a mixed-use development which will include residential towers, office space, retail areas and extensive parking.

Bournemouth is one of Southern Englands largest cities and has always enjoyed a reputation as a premier conference and leisure destination, attracting over one million visitors per year. Summer business is particularly strong, as its 12 km sandy beach attracts visitors from throughout the UK.
