UK: Developer SevenCapital has submitted plans to Birmingham City Council for the conversion of the Royal Angus Hotel into a 174-key aparthotel.

The plans for the St Chad’s Queensway property, which was formerly a Thistle hotel, include a communal ground floor facility and winter gardens.

SevenCapital bought the 186-room property in August 2020 as part of plans to expand its hospitality business.

The hotel is near to the city’s Snow Hill train station and Colmore Business District.

SevenCapital says it wants to build on the success of its existing four-star Park Regis Hotel which is also located in the city centre near to Edgbaston at Five Ways.

Damien Siviter, group managing director of SevenCapital said: “The Royal Angus Hotel is a very exciting acquisition for SevenCapital that will allow us to expand our hotel ownership, whilst helping to uphold and further boost the hospitality sector and create jobs within Birmingham. This will be especially important in helping to meet and alleviate demand ahead of the upcoming 2022 Commonwealth Games, which will see unprecedented pressure and spotlight put on the city.”

Bal Sohal, chairman of SevenCapital Group added: “SevenCapital remains, first and foremost, committed to supporting and championing Birmingham, the home of our headquarters, as a truly world class city. The Park Regis hotel brand has already proven a popular and successful brand with our existing hotel at Five Ways and we fully expect this to build on that success, helping to boost the local economy through tourism, whilst creating much needed, continual employment opportunities for the local community.”
