Ramada Jarvis Heathrow Hotel

The Ramada Jarvis London Heathrow Hotel was opened on September 2008; the new build has been joined on to the old Ramada Heathrow that used to stand on the same site. The new hotel has been hugely upgraded compared to the old one and is now superbly decorated in a contemporary manor.

As the front of the building was listed, restrictions meant that the two coned towers at the front the building had to be kept, and they have done a great job keeping them looking new but natural. The inside of the building is now bright and airy due to a glass roof atrium that runs the length of the new build. A modern bar has also been added the hotel. 

All in all the new Ramada Jarvis London Heathrow has been a huge success with a record number of visitors being reported to be having short stays due the rising popularity of the hotel.

Glasgow Hotel Group go into Adminastration

Sad day for the Mckever Group

It is with sad news to report that the Mckever hotel group has gone into administration with estimated debts of £100,000,000. The firm based in Glasgow is another victim of the credit crunch. The group formed in 1982 and employee more than 550 people in 20 hostels, apartments and hotels across in the north of England and across Scotland.

The group has said to be deeply concerned at the deep impact it may well have on homeless residents who depend on their flats and hostels in the Glasgow area and beyond.    
Circulating news states that the Glasgow hotel group may still be able to remain operative but the future of the hostels is in serious doubt. 

The administrators are running the business whilst they exuast every avenue to keep the business running. The website is still operational and taken bookings.
