London, 5 December 2016 – CBRE Hotels, on behalf of Land Securities, has sold a portfolio of four hotels to Fairview Hotels.

The Novotel hotel portfolio comprises a total of 450 bedrooms, with the properties located in Ipswich, Wolverhampton, Manchester and Coventry. This acquisition expands Fairview Hotels existing UK portfolio to nine hotels which includes Novotel, Mercure and Ibis brands. The hotels will operate under the franchise with AccorHotels.

Anu Badola, Director, CBRE Hotels, commented: “This transaction represents a strong opportunity for Fairview Hotels who are currently the largest franchisee of Novotel hotels in the UK and is an excellent fit for their platform. We are seeing an increasing amount of interest from UK based owner operator franchisees who are seeking attractive opportunities in the UK market where there is a strong underlying base of demand and attractive returns relative to the current low interest rate environment.”
