UK: Leonardo Hotels has acquired Portland Hotels, giving it a portfolio across Scotland and gaining a presence in Glasgow, Perth and Aberdeen.

Portland Hotels will add 536 additional bedrooms across Scotland and will take Leonardo's presence in Edinburgh to 445 bedrooms, joining the Leonardo Royal which was acquired in October last year.

The newly acquired portfolio will be integrated into the wider Leonardo portfolio, which will comprise more than 80 hotels after the recent acquisition.

Together with Leonardo Hotel London Heathrow Airport, Leonardo's portfolio in the UK will grow to seven hotels with 1,048 bedrooms.

The Edinburgh City Hotel is a 52-bedroom boutique hotel located below Edinburgh Castle, The Edinburgh Capital is located between Edinburgh city centre and Edinburgh Airport, and the Glasgow Pond Hotel is in West End of Glasgow.

In Perth, the Huntingtower Hotel provides 34 bedrooms, while the Speedbird Inn with 202 rooms is located immediately adjacent to Aberdeen Airport.

Daniel Roger, managing director of Leonardo Hotels Europe, said: "When we entered the market in the UK two years ago, we made it our goal to further expand our portfolio and strengthen the name recognition of the Leonardo Hotels brand. The purchase of Portland Hotels underscores this. I am convinced that our guests will love and appreciate this expansion of our offerings in key destinations across Scotland."
