Buyer: The Hampton by Hilton Duxford is set to go ahead after it was given planning approval by South Cambridgeshire District Council’s Planning Committee last week.
The new project will reportedly support an existing on-site conference centre and “ensure the viability of the site as a national tourist attraction”.
The six-storey, L-shaped site will feature bedrooms between the ground and fourth floor, a lobby and gym on the ground floor, and a reception, bar and dining area on the top floor, as well as an outdoor terrace.
Hampton by Hilton Duxford will create 40 new job roles, and is expected to open in Spring 2022.
Graham Dodd, managing director, UK and Ireland development, Hilton, said: “We are delighted to be partnering once more with Propiteer Hotels to expand their portfolio in the UK, having opened the Hampton by Hilton Exeter Airport in 2016.
“With more than 50 Hampton by Hilton hotels either trading or under development across the UK, we are confident the site will be a great addition to Duxford and we look forward to welcoming guests in 2022.”
Mike Aspinall, director of Propiteer Hotels, said: “We are pleased to secure planning permission for our exciting hotel project at IWM Duxford.
“We are working in partnership with both IWM and Hilton to ensure the finest possible experience for every one of our guests. We look forward to welcoming them in due course and to continuing our rapid expansion of branded hotel assets across the UK.”
THPT Comment: Good to see this go-ahead for Propiteer’s 2nd Hampron by Hilton hotel in the UK.
