WHY WE DO IT
We look at each project individually and tailor make them to your specific brief. From feasibility and due diligence to project management and business planning, our in-depth knowledge and experience can be called upon to support your ambitions across all areas of hospitality.
What we do
Due diligence support Validating your investment ambitions
Our team supports owners and investors with their hotel investment projects from initial sense checking of the trading history to more detailed scrutiny of revenue and cost trends. We cover all aspects of revenue, cost and property DD, and can further support the onward-looking business plan and projections that relate to your scope and ambitions.
Feasibility Decisions based on a complete understanding
If you have a site, a development or property conversion opportunity, we can tell you how feasible it is through forecasting trading, capital investment and returns analysis. If you’re looking to buy a trading hotel or portfolio, our due diligence support will ensure the opportunity is completely understood by you before you finally make your decision.
Brand selection Use our network to give you the advantage
Finding the right brand and operator is the single most important decision you’re going to make for your hotel. We know all the brand development teams, have negotiated numerous flag deals over the years, and are experts in management and franchise contract negotiations.
We evaluate the best option for your business; spanning local, national or global brands or even a marketing consortium – there’s a lot to think about and get right!
Business planning We'll show you how to make a profit
Show us a hotel and we’ll show you how to make the most profit from it. From due diligence support and feasibility studies to independent business reviews and revenue enhancement, whatever the issue or opportunity, we can help you with it.

We are specialists; we examine hotels with no disruption to the day-to-day business. Wherever you’re investing, our hospitality consulting services can tackle any strategic or operational challenge, and help you identify the best way forward for your business.

Independent business reviews (IBR) Bespoke, strategic and objective

Property/CapEx management Making sure hotels are kept in first-class condition
