Heuston Hospitality acquires Oakley Court Hotel, Windsor

Irish owned group Heuston Hospitality

The four-star Oakley Court, which was owned by Queens Moat Houses, was once the setting for the Hammer Horror movies, but is today host to over 45,000 guests a year as a hotel and conference centre.

Heuston, which operates resorts in the four and five star market in the USA, Caribbean and Europe, hopes to turn Oakley into "a landmark hotel in the South East", according to chief executive Peter Stephenson

"Oakley Court is a perfect fit for our growing portfolio of highly individual properties with the potential for development," he said. "With its unique character, it is a strong going concern and we plan to build on that by investing in the product and staff."

Heuston has already invested £300m in property around the world, including the project to design, build and operation of the new Pragelato Village Resort & Spa in the Italian Alps, home to the 2006 Winter Olympics, with 210 suites, three restaurants, three bars and a spa.
