TOPLAND BUYS FEATHER’S UK BEST WESTERN PORTFOLIO

Private investor Topland has purchased Liverpool-based independent hotel operator Feathers Group for reportedly around £65 million (£89,500 per room), adding eight hotels (726 rooms) in northwest England to its portfolio. All affiliated with Best Western, the hotels are the 93-room Best Western Premier Leyland, in Preston; the 116-room Best Western Willow Bank, in Manchester; the 81-room Best Western Feathers Liverpool and the 41-room Best Western Alicia, in Liverpool; the 52-room, in Warrington; the 218-room Best Western Premier Queen and the 75-room Best Western Westminster, in Chester; and the 48-room Best Western Llyndir Hall Hotel & Spa, in north Wales. This latest aquisition brings Topland's spending over the last 13 months to £200 million on 28 hotels; the London-based group also has further aquisitions in the pipeline.
