Seller: Was the Slough Central Library which has moved to it’s new premises, The Curve….The new complex is being developed by the local council via Slough Urban Renewal, a joint venture between Slough Borough Council and Morgan Sindall Investments Ltd.
Buyer: Located in the Thames Valley, 20 miles outside of London, the dual-branded property has transformed Slough’s former library into a 244-guestroom hotel complex. The vibrant Moxy Slough occupies the lower four floors of the property with 152 guestrooms, offering stylish design at an affordable price point. Residence Inn Slough features 92 suites complete with extra living space and fully equipped kitchens designed to provide longer-staying guests a home-away-from-home experience.
The dual-brand concept allows corporate and leisure guests to choose the space that best fits their travel needs, with shared facilities allowing guests to enjoy the best of both from unwinding in the all-day bar at the Moxy Slough to energising in the fitness centre at the Residence Inn Slough.
The hotels will be managed by Cycas Hospitality, who have a longstanding partnership with Marriott on both their Moxy and Residence Ins brands.
Wayne Androliakos, Cycas Hospitality’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “This is a landmark development for the town as well as all the partners involved, and we’re delighted to have been instrumental in bringing two well-known accommodation brands to the area.
“With our experience of developing double-decker hotels, we understand the benefits a ‘two-in-one’ approach can deliver to travellers and travel bookers. With the former library site now transformed into a vibrant destination, we are confident that the addition of two high-profile hotel brands will help boost Slough’s profile and add renewed life to the town centre.”
