PROPERTY giant Topland Group is making its mark on the UK hospitality industry after announcing the launch of its own 20 property-strong Hallmark Hotels brand.

Following the acquisition of Hallmark Hotels and Menzies Hotels in recent years, Topland Group, is bringing all 20 properties from Hallmark and Menzies Hotels together under the newly extended Hallmark Hotels brand, from this month.

Topland owns and manages 29 hotels with almost 3,000 rooms, providing accommodation to both corporate and leisure guests, including golf courses and spas.

Earlier this year, Topland group also acquired Feathers Group, a portfolio of eight hotels in the north west of England as part of a investment strategy to expand its growing leisure division. It has now spent £200m in 13 months acquiring 28 hotels.

Sol Zakay, chairman and chief executive of Topland Group, said: “I am delighted to see the continued growth and development of Topland’s hotel investment with the expansion of The Hallmark Hotel Brand.

“Topland will continue to operate with a mandate to seek out properties of similar quality with the objective of building a £1bn hotel business.”
