UK chain to rebrand in advance of expansion

by | 03 Nov 2022 | Portfolio

Great London Hospitality (glh), the largest hotel owner-operator in London, UK, is to rebrand this autumn.

The business will become Clermont Hotel Group to align more closely with its anchor brand, The Clermont.

European target

This change of corporate identity marks the culmination of £90 million investment in the past four years. glh’s aim is to reposition the company within the travel, hospitality and leisure markets by streamlining and repositioning a number of property assets under three key brands: The Clermont, Thistle and Hard Rock Hotel London.

The strategy illustrates the business’ ambition for future growth beyond London, with a focus on major cities within the UK and across Europe. The group has indicated there is more investment planned across the portfolio in the coming months, following an initial £18 million refurbishment of The Clermont properties in Charing Cross and Victoria.

New era

Jon Scott, CEO at glh said: “This is a significant milestone for the company and marks the beginning of a new era. Clermont Hotel Group offers a rich and diverse portfolio for a range of guest needs, and our new strategy and vision brings them under one roof with more clarity than ever before. 

“As the industry is still in recovery, we know there is a raft of opportunity to grow and develop as we tap into our guests’ needs. We know that people will continue to travel and spend on great experiences, but will be more discerning about their choices. As Clermont Hotel Group we are a people-first business, therefore to create our new vision we’ve worked closely with customer insights and our employees to ensure we are adapting to their needs, and delivering extraordinary experiences and services in a bold and impactful way.”
