Compass Hospitality launches Citrus Brand in UK with Holiday Inn Coventry acquisition

The 51-bedroom, three-star Holiday Inn Coventry South hotel has been acquired by fast growing Thailand-based group, Compass Hospitality. The hotel has been rebranded as the first of the group’s UK value boutique brand, Citrus Hotels.

The newly relaunched Citrus Hotel Coventry, on the outskirts of the city, is a popular stop-off point for business and leisure travellers visiting Coventry, or flying from Birmingham or Coventry Airports, as well as visitors to the nearby towns of Leamington Spa and Rugby.

Compass plans to refurbish the hotel over the course of the next 12 months to improve the experience for guests and bring elements of the style and quality that the Citrus brand has become known for in South East Asia.

Compass currently operates seven Citrus Hotels in Thailand and Malaysia and has a total portfolio of 43 hospitality properties including 11 hotels in the UK, some of which are Best Western properties.

“Citrus Hotel Coventry is a well appointed and located hotel with the range of rooms, free car parking, gym and events space that have always made it a popular choice. We have a planned refurbishment programme due to get underway shortly that will make the venue even better, however it is very much business as usual at the moment, from the customer’s perspective,” said Compass Hospitality’s vice president of operations, sales and marketing, Nick Greaves.

Other UK hotel properties  operated by Compass Hospitality are in Manchester, Leeds, Cardiff, Nottingham, Cheltenham, Oxford, Shrewsbury, Halifax, Eastbourne and Inverness.
