Occupancy in July increased by 0.6 percentage points on the previous year to 78.2% , but room rate declined by 4.3% to £66.08.In London, revpar fell by 8.3% to £66.20, but this was still an improvement on the 9.1% drop in June.

London occupancies climbed by 1.8 percentage points to 85.2%, while room rates were down by 10.3% to an average £77.66.In the provinces, revpar declined by 1% to £46.32 after growing by 5.5% in June.Room rates fell by 1.1% to £61.27 and occupancy dipped by 0.1 percentage points to 75.6%.

Said TRI: ‘With figures acknowledged by the Home Office suggesting that the UK is ranked 10th on the terror target liast and with economic prospects still difficult to predice, it is little wonder that the tourism industry continues to suffer from peaks and troughs in performance on a month-by-month basis.’

TRI’s survey covers 389 chain hotels, mainly in the three- and four-star sectors, with an average size of 149 bedrooms.
