Qatar Airways Monday announced the acquisition of Novotel Edinburgh Park Hotel in Scotland.
The hotel will continue to be managed and operated under the Novotel brand by Accor which operates more than 3,700 quality hotels worldwide, the Qatari carrier said.
The Novotel Edinburgh Park is a four-star property located on Lochside Avenue adjacent to the Edinburgh Business Park and near Edinburgh International Airport. It has a tram link to the airport and Edinburgh city centre.
QA Group Chief Executive Akbar Al Baker said, "The Novotel Edinburgh Park is an excellent addition to our travel portfolio, complementing our five-star hotel the Oryx Rotana in Doha and Sheraton Skyline Hotel Heathrow, making it easy for passengers who wish to spend some time in Edinburgh before travelling further afield in Scotland." This hotel is QA's second acquisition outside Qatar. Earlier this year QA acquired Sheraton Skyline Hotel at Heathrow Airport in London.
In Qatar, QA owns the five-star Oryx Rotana Hotel in Doha and runs the new airside Hamad International Airport Hotel.
