Amaris Hospitality is investing an extra £24m in the business to pay for extensions to three hotels within its portfolio - Jurys Inn Oxford, Hilton Garden Inn Dublin and Jurys Inn Belfast. 

The move, which forms part of the group's plan to transform, rebrand and reposition 23 hotels in its portfolio, will see an extra 237 bedrooms added to the estate. 

Work to add an extra 72 rooms to the 168-bedroom Jurys Inn in Oxford will start first and is expected to be completed by October. The hotel, which includes 20 meeting and events rooms, a bar, restaurant and leisure facilities will receive £5.7m investment as part of the capital expenditure.

Hilton Garden Inn Dublin, which re-opened under the new brand last week, will gain an additional 85 bedrooms following a £10m investment while Jurys Inn Belfast is to receive an £8 million capital investment to support an addition of 80 rooms, and the complete renovation of all existing rooms. 

Amaris Hospitality CEO John Brennan said: "The UK hospitality sector is experiencing positive momentum, with the Amaris Hospitality Group making excellent progress on its previously announced business plan," he said.  

“The Company continues to trade very well, with further potential to grow the Jurys Inn brand in key UK cities, including other potential extensions. We are also currently in advanced discussions on a number of exciting new development and acquisition projects and look forward to announcing these plans in due course.”

The £24m investment is in addition to the £100m Amaris Hospitality is investing in its estate to rebrand and reposition 23 hotels in its 74-strong group.
