Wyndham Hotel Group has signed an agreement to add another 20 Ramada hotels in the UK.
The properties will open in the next 10 years with the first two opening next month: Ramada Resort Cwrt Bleddyn in the Welsh town of Usk and Ramada Leicester Stage.
The Welsh hotel has 45 rooms with facilities including a fitness centre, indoor pool, spa and function rooms while the Leicester property has 79 rooms, several food and beverage outlets and five meeting rooms.
A third hotel in Finchley, north London is also due to open next year. All properties under the new deal will be managed by Lester Hotels, which has also taken over the management of Ramada Encore Leicester and a new hotel in Oxford. New properties are also due to open in Wakefield and Hounslow.
“We look forward to working with Lester Hotels Group Limited to aggressively accelerate the growth of the iconic Ramada brand in the UK,” said Nima Davoodzadeh, vice president of development, UK and Europe for Wyndham Hotel Group. “With a 60 year heritage that has seen the brand grow to over 820 locations across more than 50 countries, Ramada offers guests a welcoming environment for work or rest, as well as significant development potential for owners looking for a renowned brand, award-winning marketing and an extensive global distribution system.”
