Premier Inn continues German expansion
The sites in Essen and Freiburg will add a further 370 bedrooms bringing the total secured development pipeline up to approximately 930 rooms.
Premier Inn has completed on a deal for a 190-bedroom hotel in Essen Main Station, providing excellent access to the railway and connectivity into the city.
The hotel in Freiburg will also open in a prime city-centre location following a deal completed this month. The location, just minutes from Freiburg’s train station, will provide 180 rooms.
Premier Inn is purchasing the Essen and Freiburg sites freehold. The hotels are scheduled to open in 2019.
Mark Anderson, Managing Director – Property and Premier Inn International at Whitbread, said: “We’re very excited to be adding these sites in excellent locations as Premier Inn continues to grow in Germany. Each of these hotels will provide great options for our customers and a fantastic opportunity for Premier Inn to build our brand in Germany. Since 2014 we have secured over 1,100 rooms in the German hotel market and are looking to build on this solid foundation. Our Frankfurt hotel, which opened in February 2016, has been extremely well received and we look forward to similar success when our next hotels open.”
