Compass Hospitality manages 6th hotel in UK

Lace Market Hotel_Studio Suite

Within six months of entering the UK market, Asia based Compass Hospitality Group has added the historic and newly renovated Lace Market Hotel in High Pavement, Nottingham under its management.

Previously converted from a Georgian townhouse, the hotel was a mainstay for newlyweds and famous visitors to the city. With just 42 rooms and suites, the hotel offers personalized services to guests. Standard room amenities include flat screen HD LCD TV, high speed Wi-Fi, minibar and refreshment counter, and en-suite bathroom. Superior rooms and suites feature original fireplaces, free-standing bathtubs, artworks and period interior designs.

The dining experience is inspirational at Merchants Restaurant showcasing modern British cuisine by British Chef Ben Chaplin, Saint Cocktail Bar with award winning mixologist James Vyse, and Cock & Hoop, a quintessentially British pub majoring on cask ales and gastro food. An elegant meeting room accommodates 22 person comfortably for meetings and private dinners.

Nottingham is well known for Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest, and remains so to this day, with museums, landmarks, ballads and city walks associated with Nottingham’s most famous son. During the days of the British Empire, Nottingham became the center of the world’s lace industry housed in impressive 19th Century Victorian industrial architecture. Today, many of the former warehouses have been conserved and restored into chic apartments, shops, restaurants, bars and museums. Located in the Lace Market, considered the oldest part of Nottingham and center of the Creative Quarter, the 42-key boutique hotel is steps away from historical attractions like St. Mary’s Church, Galleries of Justice Museum and Shire Hall; as well as the cosmopolitan hub of high street shops and trendy restaurants.

Lace Market Hotel is the 6th hotel in UK to be managed by Compass Hospitality. This follows Compass Hospitality’s recent acquisition in August 2015 of the Big Sleep Hotels portfolio in Cardiff, Cheltenham and Eastbourne. Earlier this year in April, Compass Hospitality commenced its management of The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax. The Group’s portfolio now comprises 45 properties in Thailand, Malaysia and the UK.

Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO, Harmil Singh said, “We are very pleased to add the iconic Lace Market Hotel to our portfolio in UK. In the few months we have commenced our management of the other five hotels, they have all achieved strong performance. We are confident of the market potential in the UK and will continue to seek out acquisitions and opportunities in the UK.”

Matthew Welbourn, Executive Vice President of UK Operations, added, “Our hotel staff in Lace Market Hotel share Compass Hospitality’s excitement on the re-opening of the hotel. We are committed to raise the market profile of the hotel.”

The hotels will be managed by us as we are already managing The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax in the UK as part of a portfolio comprising 49 properties located in Thailand, Malaysia and the UK.

Compass Hospitality’s President & CEO, Harmil Singh said, “We are very pleased with the portfolio acquisition of these three well located and profitable hotels. We will continue to seek out acquisitions and opportunities to grow our presence in the UK.”

SiteMinder solidifies presence in South-East Asia with Compass Hospitality

Siteminder

Bangkok, Thailand – The global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, is pleased today to announce that it has tied-up with our group Compass Hospitality to solidify its presence in South-East Asia.

We operate 42 hotel properties across Thailand, Malaysia and, most recently, the UK with the signing of 400-year-old The Lion Hotel Shrewsbury and The White Swan Halifax.

With an additional 15 properties under development, we feel that SiteMinder  would be a key driver to the expansion of our portfolio which currently comprises hotels, serviced apartments, resorts and spas.

“We are delighted to have SiteMinder as its technology provider for market-leading online distribution. The success of our business’ growth greatly depends on our ability to market ourselves to all travelers – not just those within our dominant markets of Bangkok, Phuket and Kuala Lumpur, but from everywhere in the world – and using SiteMinder’s Channel Manager, we are now in a stronger position than ever to achieve this,” says Tejinder Sidhu, VP Sales & Marketing of Compass Hospitality.

“In addition to the company’s excellent local support, SiteMinder’s Channel Manager provides versatility and strong integration capabilities to our existing channels – including Ctrip and TripConnect instant booking – and all these factors influenced our decision to switch from our previous provider. The platform also offers powerful features that are designed specifically for hotel group businesses, notably the enterprise dashboard, which makes it easy for us to manage all our properties through one central interface.”

The Tourism Authority of Thailand has set a target of 28 million international visitors to Thailand in 2015, with China, the UK, the US, Germany, India and Malaysia featuring among the country’s top 10 source markets for January.1 Meanwhile, over the next 10 years, Kuala Lumpur is aiming to double its tourist arrivals to 16 million with both the spend and average length of stay per visitor expected to increase significantly.2

Kevin Tatem, Director of Sales – Asia at SiteMinder, says local hotel owners and marketers such as Compass Hospitality, who now have access to global travellers, are poised to benefit most from these plans.

“SiteMinder offers a platform for hotels such as Compass Hospitality’s to attract, reach and convert guests from all corners of the globe. In doing so, they can get booked faster online – to increase revenue at a low cost – while taking advantage of powerful data that provides full visibility to their online performance and the capability to forecast ahead.”
