UK: Aparthotel developer and operator Roomzzz has appointed agents at Christie & Co with a mandate to expand its portfolio.

The company has seven operational properties, with a further six in the pipeline. It is looking for additional conversion and new build opportunities, as well as existing hotels or serviced apartments for redevelopment.

Roomzzz will consider freehold or leasehold opportunities, and is looking for sites that are capable of providing aparthotels of between 30,000 and 100,000 square feet. London is the highest priority but it is also looking for sites in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Oxford, Cambridge, Bristol, Bath, Southampton, Brighton, Canterbury, Cardiff, Belfast and Dublin.

Jon Patrick, head of leisure and development at Christie & Co, said: "We have seen the rise of alternative hospitality models and aparthotels represent a growing platform as both business and leisure travellers are happy to move away from the conventional hotel format given the breadth of food and beverage provision within city centres and transport hubs these days."

Naveen Ahmed, managing director of Roomzzz said: "Roomzzz is a high quality product and operationally we are very particular about the level of customer experience enjoyed in our aparthotels. With Christie & Co's industry knowledge, understanding of our business and requirements as well as their contact base in the UK and further afield we are looking forward to growing the Roomzzz business into new locations."
