Bristol airport is to gain its first hotel, a 201-room Hampton by Hilton, due to open in spring next year.
The property is to be financed and owned by a division of Chinese company CIMC Group and will be managed by Hilton Worldwide.
The hotel will be built in modular technique which reduces the time for construction
Portions of the hotel, including guest rooms and hallways, will be manufactured in China before being transported to the site for assembly.
Hampton by Hilton Bristol Airport will include meeting spaces, a 24-hour fitness room, parking for 120 cars and free Wi-Fi.
Hilton Worldwide Europe and Africa development senior vice president Patrick Fitzgibbon said: “CIMC’s capacity to deliver modular sections of the building to the final hotel site offers an incredible opportunity to overcome many of the challenges faced during construction.
“Alongside potential time and cost efficiencies, CIMC’s ability to provide senior debt to developers using its modular building technique underpins its robust growth model, and we are seeing more and more opportunity for this structure in mature markets such as the UK, and developing economies, most notably in Africa.”
Bristol airport chief executive Robert Sinclair added: “The development of a high quality on-site hotel to be operated under such a world-renowned brand will be a very welcome addition to our facilities for the growing number of passengers choosing to fly to and from Bristol airport.
“Alongside the terminal extension currently under construction, this is another statement of our ambition to be a world class regional airport serving the south-west of the UK.”
