Leonardo Hotel to open in Manchester

Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland are to manage a 275-room hotel in Manchester.

Scheduled to open in early 2021, the new hotel will be branded as a Leonardo Hotel.

It will be developed on a site on Adair Street, which has been purchased by parent company Fattal Hotel Group and will be part of a new commercial and residential 'urban quarter'.

The deal is part of the Fattal Group's continued expansion in the UK, managed through Jurys Inn and Leonardo Hotels UK and Ireland, which currently operate 45 hotels - 36 under the Jurys Inn brand and nine hotels under the Leonardo brand.

The Israel-based group, one of the fastest growing hotel chains in Europe and Israel, bought the nearby Midland Hotel in Manchester in October.

It was also part of the acquisition of the four-star Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton in the same month.

Both properties have since joined the portfolio of Leonardo Hotels in the UK.

Meanwhile, Fattal has also revealed plans to invest £32 million in the redevelopment and expansion of the existing Jurys Inn Edinburgh hotel and its neighbouring site.

The investment includes the conversion of an adjacent listed building into a new 131-room NYX Hotel by Leonardo Hotels.
