Luton Hoo becomes Arora

The Arora Group, operator of the Sofitel Heathrow Terminal 5, and a host of airport related hotels, has bought the historic Luton Hoo, from Elite Hotels.

The property, once the home of the Wernher family with The Queen a visitor, is very close to Luton Airport and the M1 motorway.  It offers 228 rooms and covers over 1,000 acres of golf course, ancillary conference and spa facilities, parkland, woods, and lakes.  The purchase price was undisclosed.

Surinder Arora, CEO and Chairman of the Arora Group, commented: “Our acquisition of Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf and Spa continues to support our strategy to diversify our hotel portfolio and we are excited to build on the already significant investment and development by Elite Hotels since their purchase of the estate in 1999. We are excited to welcome the Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa team to the Arora Group and are looking forward to the opportunities ahead for our expanded family.”

Arora Hotels (a division of the Arora Group) owns/operates numerous properties at and around London airports, including Sofitel Heathrow, Sofitel Gatwick, Novotel Stansted, Renaissance Heathrow, Holiday Inn Heathrow Terminal 5, Crowne Plaza Heathrow Terminal 4, Holiday Inn Express Heathrow Terminal 4, Hilton Gatwick, Hilton Garden Inn Heathrow Terminals 2 and 3, and Arora Hotel Gatwick/Crawley plus the Fairmount Windsor Park.

Elite Hotels retains the Ashdown Park Hotel, Tylney Hall Hotel and The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne.
