Bangkok, May 16, 2018 – Compass Hospitality is set to expand its management portfolio with the signing of GoGlasgow Urban Hotel in Glasgow, Scotland. The addition of the hotel into the portfolio solidifies the company’s sustained strategy of a wider expansion push across the UK, making the hotel as its 14th property under management in the UK since the company’s expansion into the market in 2015.
Conveniently situated in the vicinity of the Ibrox Stadium, Scotland’s third largest football stadium and home base of Glasgow’s Ranger FC, the hotel boasts 117 bedrooms, the GoGrill all-day-dining restaurant, and two large bespoke event rooms with a total capacity of 350 guests. The hotel also benefits from easy access to Scotland’s largest exhibition center, the Scottish Event Campus (“SEC”), which includes the SEC Center, SEC Armadillo and SSE Hydro. The hotel underwent comprehensive refurbishment in late 2015 and is a popular destination for sports travelers in Scotland’s most populous city.
Harmil Singh, CEO of Compass Hospitality, said: “This strategic expansion in Glasgow highlights our longstanding commitment to expand in fast-growing markets as well as our confidence in the UK market. We look forward to continue growing the business and developing its already-solid customer base.”
Matthew Welbourn, Executive Vice President of Operations in the UK, added: “We are thrilled to add such a strategically located hotel and to grow our presence in Glasgow. The hotel was repositioned following refurbishment 2 years ago and has since shown robust growth with excellent customer feedback following the development. We strongly believe the synergy created between the solid hotel team and our wide coverage of online presence will further cement the hotel’s performance going forward.”
