Strong outlook for UK hotels as investment volumes up 135 per cent vs H2 2020, says Savills

UK hotel investment volumes reached GBP1.70 billion in the first half of 2021, across 59 deals,  representing an increase of 135.2 per cent compared to the previous six-month period (July-December 2020), according to the international real estate adviser Savills. While this continues to be below the pre-pandemic five-year average of GBP2.43 billion for the same period, the positive momentum demonstrates the robustness of the sector and emphasises the green shoots that are being seen in terms of the UK hotel investment landscape, says the firm.
