LEYLAND HOTEL TO BENEFIT FROM HALF-A-MILLION REFURB

Hallmark Hotel Leyland

Hallmark Hotel Preston Leyland is to undergo an extensive, £550,000 refurbishment after posting its highest ever revenue. The project, which begins this month, will include modernising the design and functionality of 31 of its bedrooms and bathrooms.

John Knowles, general manager at Hallmark Hotel Preston Leyland said: “We spent sufficient time in 2017 gathering guest feedback to help us distribute investment wisely and ensure we remain at the forefront of a competitive market.

“We look forward to watching the work begin and gain guest insights post-development, but we’re confident the new bedroom designs will go down well.”

The hotel rebranded from Best Western to become part of independent hotel group Hallmark Hotels in 2017 and saw its highest revenue results. This included nearly 6,000 attendees during its Christmas party season, and a nomination for a British Coach Tourism Award in the Accommodation Provider category.

The strong year was, in part, due to a 4 per cent increase in revenue from conferences, which is forecasted to increase a further 8 per cent in 2018 and a significant leap forward in TripAdvisor traveler rankings moving from 45th out of 192 hotels in Lancashire to 29th out of 192 over the course of 2017.

John added: “After a great end to last year, the refurbishments will not only benefit our travelling guests but also the local community, which we strive to be the centre of. Once the project is complete in March we’ll be re-launching our wedding packages which we hope will sustain the recent increase in social banqueting bookings.”
