Revenue rise fails to deliver GOPPAR growth at UK hotels

LONDON: Despite recording a 0.6% increase in Total Revenue in November, profit per room at hotels in the UK fell by 1.1% due to escalating costs, according to the latest worldwide poll of full-service hotels from HotStats.

Growth in revenue levels was marginal this month, led by a 0.5% increase in RevPAR, to £91.46. The increase in RevPAR was in spite of a 0.6-percentage point decline in room occupancy, to 78.5%, which was offset by a 1.3% increase in achieved average room rate, to £116.56.

In addition, year-on-year growth in Non-Rooms Revenues was limited, at just 0.9% in the Food and Beverage department, with growth also recorded in Conference and Banqueting (+2.6%) and Leisure (+3.0%), on a per available room basis.

As a result of the movement in all revenue departments in November, TrevPAR at hotels in the UK increased by 0.6% to £145.68, which was 5.1% above the year-to-date performance in this measure, at £138.61.
