According to Stephen Surphlis, Property Director of McAleer & Rushe, the deal represents a significant transaction within the UK hotel investment sector and highlights the confidence and strong interest in the regional cities, particularly for hotel investments with long term income streams let to major brands such as Dalata.

Commenting he said: “The new Maldron hotel and the complete mixed-use scheme is a significant project and will support Newcastle’s continued economic development by attracting both business and leisure visitors to the heart of the City. We are looking forward to working with Standard Life Investments and Dalata, for whom we are delivering numerous hotel projects in the UK & Ireland.”
