The real estate investor and developer Lamington Group has revealed that plans are in place to open three new net zero room2 hometels in York, Glasgow and Manchester in 2024, 2025 and 2026 respectively.

Robert Godwin, Managing Director at Lamington Group, comments: “Lamington Group strives to push the boundaries of net zero in the hospitality industry. The opening of new net zero properties in York, Glasgow and Manchester is a realisation of the group’s vision to expand across the country and reach 5,000 keys by 2030. At the heart of each property remains our commitment to social values, community engagement and collaboration and the promotion of sustainable values to educate guests on the importance of the sustainability agenda.”

room2 currently has three operational locations, in Southampton, Hammersmith and room2 Chiswick, which opened in December 2021 marking the world’s first fully whole life net zero hotel. room2 Belfast is also due to open in spring 2023. Hometels combine the best elements from Airbnb, serviced apartments and boutique hotels in an offering designed to appeal to modern corporate and leisure guests seeking flexible accommodation.
