Purchasing the three hotels is a huge coup for the company. We are making significant investment into the hotels to put them officially ‘on the map’.
(PRWEB UK) 6 July 2011
Quantum Hotel Group (QHG), a new division of the locally-based Quantum Group of companies, has made its first acquisition. Three hotels, all in a prime location on Bournemouth’s Eastcliff, were purchased by the Group and have been re-launched in July 2011 following a £1m + refurbishment investment. At least 20 new jobs have been created as a result of the purchase.
The three hotels – formerly known as The Cottonwood, Ocean View, and Bay View Court are located on a two and quarter acre plot on East Overcliff Drive, just minutes from the town centre and beach. Under the new ownership two of the hotels have already been extensively refurbished and re-launched as ‘The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel’ and ‘The Ocean View Hotel’. The third hotel is already operational under its new name ‘Bayview Breeze Hotel’.
David Hines, Chief Executive of Quantum Hotel Group, said: “The hotels are located in a fantastic position and all offer breathtaking views over the sea, but were underperforming and suffering from a lack of investment and imagination. We are proud of Bournemouth, we live and work here yet there are not many exciting venues in which to stay or enjoy great food and drink. For locals and visitors we are seeking what we want for ourselves... an offering with great service, fantastic food in a beautiful environment but at sensible prices!”
Quantum Hotel Group beat off stiff competition from a number of large national chains to obtain the hotels. David Hines continued: “Purchasing the three hotels is a huge coup for the company. We are making significant investment into the hotels to put them officially ‘on the map’ and will soon offer something completely unique to the locals and visitors to Bournemouth. Quantum will be the ‘one to watch’ in the local hotel sector, so watch this space!”
Quantum Hotel Group’s three new hotels each have a distinct offering, ranging from budget to luxury boutique accommodation and facilities, and weddings/conferencing. Because of this diversity in the offering of the Group, the management has the ability to match accommodation and facilities to the varying needs of a diverse range of target audiences.
Particularly suitable for local businesses is The Ocean View Hotel which has spacious facilities suitable for corporate events and functions, all with sea views. The hotel also will have a dedicated Conference Centre and function rooms which can cater for up to 150 people. Bookings for Christmas parties, weddings, the Air Festival in August and business functions are already being taken. The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel, with fantastic period interior, has been styled with a chic bohemian feel, and its ‘Bar Vista’ and the ‘Garden Restaurant’ are already building a following as the latest fashionable venues. All interior design has been masterminded by Christine Johnson of DQ Design, part of the Quantum Group of Companies.
