LGH announces multi million-pound portfolio refurbishment plan

10:15 / Monday 24th September 2018

LGH Hotels Management has announced a multi million-pound refurbishment plan across a number of hotels. 

Of its 21-strong portfolio, the programme will start with the 615-bedroom Holiday Inn London Heathrow M4, Jct.4 (pictured), the 149-bedroom Holiday Inn Brentwood and the 166-bedroom Holiday Inn Milton Keynes – Central, for which works are already under way and due to complete towards the end of 2018.

The company has also announced a new partnership with celebrity chef and restaurateur Marco Pierre White, with plans to open two of Marco’s New York Italian branches in the Holiday Inn Milton Keynes – Central and Holiday Inn Brentwood later this year, with the potential to expand the partnership across the wider Holiday Inn portfolio in the future.

LGH Hotels Management will invest “heavily” in the properties to create a new open lobby concept merging the reception, lounge, bar and restaurant areas, and a new 24-hour To Go Café.

Omar Nicholls, development director for LGH Hotels Management, has been tasked to oversee the refurbishment plans for each hotel and has worked with external design agency Design Coalition on the new Holiday Inn open lobby concept.

He said: “Our main goal with the new open lobby design is to create a space in each property that feels familiar, like an extension of home, and has a logical flow so guests can truly relax and utilise each corner in a way that makes sense to them and accommodates all of their work and relaxation needs.”

Simon Teasdale, managing director of LGH Hotels Management, added: “Not only will these refurbishment plans revolutionise the Holiday Inn guest experience but will set a new standard in the mid-scale hospitality industry for accommodating the business and social lives of today’s guests…

“This is an incredibly important step in our business development and economic growth for 2018 and beyond, not only to improve and expand our services but to open the door to brand new guests.”
