“Finishing touches to bedroom refurbishments also took place at Apex City of London and Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh.  Meanwhile, we are pleased to report Apex City of Bath Hotel – the most recent addition to our portfolio – performed particularly well for conference and events during its first year of trading.”
