Weak pound paves massive growth curve for UK hotel sector even in 2018

Published on : Wednesday, September 20, 2017

UK touristsThe hotel sector of London is ready to remain strong amidst challenges to the hospitality industry of the UK, as revealed by a fresh report released today.

 

The weaker pound would continue triggering growth in revenues and bookings across the capital and also the UK as a whole as per the latest Hotels Forecast of PwC. But then, a recent raise in London implies that growth would be slower than what the industry had experienced so far this year. As many as 7,000 new rooms would be added in the city next year.

 

Revenue per available room (RevPAR), the profitability of the hotel sector is expected to increase to 6% in London this year to nearly £120.

 

Growth is estimated to be about 2.4% in 2018 but the RevPAR would be touching £123. The occupancy is also expected to grow, ascending to 0.2% in the year 2018. This follows a rise of 2.3% this year in London as compared to an average growth of 0.2% elsewhere in the UK.

 

London has recorded a large number of tourists so far this year and this is a phenomenon that, as felt by the PwC is expected to lead to the growth of the weak pound.

 

The news comes amid a series of positive reports from hotel chains claiming that they had observed a bounce in London revenues this year.

 

Hilton has unveiled plans for coming up with 30 more British hotels as well. However, the head of hospitality and leisure research at PwC, Liz Hall has warned that the cost pressures on hotels is likely to result in the minimization of hotel supply next year, thereby restricting growth.
