Why investing in hotel property is the best thing for the summer

The arrival of August stands for one thing for many of us- a summer holiday. As Brexit approaches and the pounds value is decreasing, many holiday goers are approaching their trips with caution. Combined with the rising costs of daily life, domestic holidays, affectionately referred to as staycations are on the rise.

What does this mean for Hotels?

The increase in domestic travel over international trips means the demand for UK hotel rooms is skyrocketing. The hotel industry reached a total turnover of £98 billion in 2017 proves the demand for quality hotels in the UK is in prime demand.

tarquin jones, property investment, no.7, autism hotel,

No. 7, Blackpool

The tourism economy accounts for 9.6% of all UK jobs. This equated to 3.1 million jobs in 2013 and producing £126.9 million UK GPD in 2013. This was also a 173,000 net increase in jobs in 2010-2012.

Since 2010 tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in employment terms. Britain is forecasted to have 38.8 million oversea visits equating to £24.9 billion in 2019. The tourism industry is predicted to be worth over £257 billion by 2025. The rise in tourism is a result in the millennial and Generation Z wishing to enjoy experiences over purchased items.

The Brexit Cloud

Brexit’s October deadline has seen the value of the pound plummet making international travel a financial stretch for many. As an alternative many are making the most of British soil choosing city breaks and seaside venues including Brighton, Plymouth and Cornwall. For a property investor, this is the chance of a lifetime to financially benefit from the domestic tourism demand. Investing in a hotel will see both oversea visitors take advantage of the low cost of the pound and British travellers wanting to enjoy a cost-effective vacation.

Bootle, Liverpool

History

Bootle Town Hall

Bootle was first recorded in the 11th century, as a small village nestled in the dunes near the River Mersey. By the early 19th century, Bootle was reimagined as an upmarket bathing resort.

Bootle Town Hall is among the buildings erected in the last quarter of the 19th century. The population of the town swelled during this period, boosted in large part by Irish immigration due to work opportunities on the docks.  The wealth to pay for the splendour of the town hall and the gentrified ‘Bootle Village’ area was generated by these docks. The skilled workers lived in terraced houses in the east of the town, while the casual dock labourers lived in cramped, dwellings near the dockside.

Regeneration

Santander have announced plans to build a £75 million base in Bootle. Their existing building will be demolished and replaced by a huge campus. The campus will be built with environmentally-friendly materials and designed to better accommodate staff. Currently, the Bootle site houses 2000 staff. The new campus will allow for a further 500 people in addition to a fitness centre and cycle storage for employees. Furthermore, a public park with opportunities for sporting facilities and new businesses are set to be built.

Liverpool2 is a £300 million regeneration project to expand the port of Liverpool, creating a river berth near the “Seaforth Triangle” south of the Royal Seaforth Dock and is a primary part of the Mersey Ports Master Plan. Upon completion, the new dock will be able to accommodate two post-Panamax vessels of 13,500 Twenty-foot equivalent unit simultaneously. The expansion of the docks includes the construction of a new deep-water terminal which will eliminate the restriction in vessel size of the current docks.

The completion of the docks will allow the world’s container ships to have direct connections to the northern half of the UK and Ireland. It is also expected to make a significant contribution the community, by adding £5 billion to the local economy and bringing an influx of employment opportunities.

Liverpool Community College and Mersey Maritime have signed partnerships with Peel Port to perform job skills training, 5,000 direct and indirect jobs will be created, of which 4,000 will be at the Liverpool Port.

Culture

Southport Pleasureland

In close proximity to a number of areas, Bootle offers a thriving social scene. The seaside resort at Southport, just up the road, is home to Pleasureland, offering plenty of thrilling rides, featuring free entry to the park.
