Holiday Inn Express Southampton

In Southampton, England, property investment company International Hotel Group has completed the acquisition of Holiday Inn Express Southampton. The 176-room hotel was sold for £19 million.

IHL has also purchased a 100-bedroom Holiday Inn Express in Redditch for £7 million. Both hotels, acquired off-market, are freehold and have new 20-year franchise agreements with InterContinental Hotels Group.

The purchase price for the two hotels was partly settled through proceeds of £7 million private placement. The balance of the purchase price was funded through existing cash resources and senior bank debt funding at a loan.
