UK hotels enjoy August RevPAR boost

The UK outperformed the European RevPAR average

New data released by ALMR shows that hotels across the UK enjoyed another welcome boost in revenue per available room (RevPAR) during the peak holiday month of August.
The figures showed positive growth for the hotel industry across Europe, including the UK, which increased RevPAR by 4.6% compared with the same month the previous year, despite occupancy remaining relatively flat.

RevPAR figures for the year to date (vs 2016) show a growth of 7.8%, outperforming the European average of 5.8%.

Average daily rates (ADR) for UK hotels registered an increase of 4.5% in August against the European average of 4.2%.

Kate Nicholls, chief executive of ALMR, said: “The figures show that hotels in the UK are continuing to perform strongly. Hotels and accommodation providers make up a significant proportion of the UK’s diverse eating and drinking out sector, represented by the ALMR, so it’s great to see businesses operating in this segment doing well over the summer season.”
