Starboard Hotels has taken its portfolio to 11 after acquiring the Best Western Plus Hotel, Epping Forest. 

The hotel owner, operator and developer, has taken over the ownership and management of the recently-refurbished 99-bedroom hotel in Woodford Green as part of its expansion plans. 

All staff, including general manager Chris Dobson, will remain at the property, which includes The Forest Restaurant and Bar, as part of the deal. 

Starboard Hotels managing director Paul Callingham said: “We are delighted that this popular local hotel has joined the Starboard group and we hope to invest in the hotel further making it a successful business for the future. The hotel will sit well within our portfolio, which includes the newly refurbished Best Western Carlton Hotel, Blackpool.

Starboard started out in 2006 as a specialist in small and medium hotels in the UK. It recently acquired Holiday Inn Express in Leeds and operates hotels in Greenock and Burnley under the brand. It also owns the Days Inn Wetherby and Ibis hotels in Sheffield, Birmingham, Leicester, Plymouth and Gatwick.
