A strong operating performance has boosted revenue by 27% to £141.8m at PPHE Hotel Group, owner of the Park Plaza brand, for the six months to 30 June 2017.

EBITDA increased by 22.9% to £39.9m and on a like-for-like basis by 20.5% to £38m.

Revenue per available room grew by 14.6% to £83.60 (like-for-like revpar up 17.9% to £82.70), which was driven by a 11.9% increase in average room rate to £115.80 (like-for-like average room rate up 10.9% to £114.70).
