Andras House Hotel Group Records Rise In Turnover
The latest accounts filed for Northern Irish hotel group Andras House reveal that the firm has experienced a 20% rise in turnover to £20 million.
Pre-tax profits at the company, which operates Belfast's Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn hotels, also increased from £2.5 million to £3.2 million.
Andras House is currently in the midst of investing £5 million in refurbishing Belfast's Crowne Plaza hotel, which will involve the addition of 36 new bedrooms to the venue, including bridal suites and a presidential suite, as well as a revamp of its existing 120 rooms.
Commenting on the Crowne Plaza's upgrades, Andras House director Rajesh Rana said, "We are delighted to reach the final stage of our investment and upgrade plans, meaning that we are on-target to become the leading conference, wedding and leisure hotel in Northern Ireland.
"Our new, enhanced range of bedrooms, bathrooms and event space, combined with our award-winning chefs, means that we are now attracting conferences, weddings and events on a national scale.
"This upgrade of our bedrooms will complete the repositioning of the hotel for corporate and leisure guests while the additional bedrooms will confirm our position as Northern Ireland's largest residential conferencing and banqueting venues."
