Following Splendid Hospitality Group’s acquisition of The Master Robert Hotel in Hounslow over 16 years ago, the property is set to undergo reconstruction and relaunch as Ibis Styles Heathrow East hotel in 2019.
Situated on the Great West Road, Hounslow, the development is 3.8 miles from Heathrow Terminal 5. With design inspired by the 1930s the hotel features, 125 hotel bedrooms, meeting room, front of house dining and car parking.
Colin Tedder, director of development for Splendid Hospitality, will be working with principle contractor TW Construct to lead the build, construction and set-up of the new property, whilst interior design is being led by Wakefield-based independent designer Matthews Mee.
Ibis Styles Heathrow East is Splendid Hospitality’s fourth franchise with AccorHotels. Splendid operates independent properties and major brands from groups such as AccorHotels, Hilton and IHG.
CEO of Splendid Hospitality, Stuart Bailey, said: “After working on the development of this property for several years, I am pleased to see it coming to fruition. It is an unusual proposition with hotel and residential accommodation and I am very passionate about it and what it will bring to the local area.”
Philip Lassman, VP, head of development, AccorHotels UK & Ireland, added: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Splendid Hospitality on another hotel which will take the Ibis Styles UK network to a significant milestone of 25 hotels. We’re seeing considerable appetite from investors and owners for brands like Ibis Styles that have international recognition but still offer an element of flexibility and local feel.
“This exciting development by Splendid Hospitality plays perfectly to the Ibis Styles reputation for delivering an upbeat, stylish hotel experience to guests.”
