Regional UK Hoteliers Improve Their Results in May 2014

News May 2014 was rather a mixed month for hotel industry of the UK. While hoteliers in South East of the country enjoyed growth of revenues, hotels in London couldn’t reach results of May 2013.

May was the fifth consecutive month of growth for the UK provinces. Even though occupancy was down by 0.3% to 77.4% in total, the raise of average room rate by 7.4% in hotels in South East of the UK helped to make RevPAR (revenue per available room) grow by 4.3%. This helped TRevPAR (total revenue per available room) add 3.5% in May 2014 despite the decrease in food and beverage sales by 2.9%. Departmental operating profit per available room (DOPPAR) remained almost flat (+0.2%), and gross operating profit added 4.3% to 35.22 pounds in total.

Hotels in Glasgow had a particularly good month. Thanks to the Commonwealth Games all main indicators showed growth. TRevPAR and GOPPAR grew by 14.1% and 27.6% respectively, while occupancy added 4.7% to 85.2% in total, and average room rate increased by 11.9% to 75.41 pounds in total. Naturally, this influenced RevPAR that added fantastic 14.1% (£109.81 in total). Chester was another city that posted good results. Hotels in Chester managed to improve all key indicators. TRevPAR and GOPPAR added 7.3% and 24.2% respectively.
