Wyndham set to expand Ramada brand in UK

Wyndham Hotel Group has signed a development agreement with UK-based Lester Hotels Group to open 20 Ramada hotels open across the UK over the next 10 years.

The first two hotels—Ramada Resort Cwrt Bleddyn and Ramada Leicester Stage—are due to open next month, upping the number of Ramadas in the country to 40.

A third hotel in Finchley, north of London, is in the planning stages and slated to open in 2015.

All properties will be managed by Lester Hotels, which currently, according to its website, has a six-hotel portfolio, which includes the Ramada Hatfield.
