Region's newest hotel is enjoying expectation-busting occupancy rates

By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: 11 Sep 2017

The region’s newest hotel – the Hampton by Hilton Humberside Airport - has welcomed its 1,000th guest just seven weeks after opening.

Eastern Airways pilot, John Mckeown, enjoyed the hotel’s hospitality last week and was presented with a small memento by Hellen Fairbanks, guest services assistant.

The new hotel opened its doors in July and has enjoyed higher than forecasted occupancy levels since then.

“We are very pleased with how people have taken to the hotel since we opened,” general manager Sam Teale said. “We’ve had a good mix of business guests, people working in the renewables and offshore industries, and holidaymakers about to jet off from Humberside Airport. It has been a fantastic start to our new hotel's future!”

In addition to its 100 spacious bedrooms, the Hampton by Hilton Humberside Airport, which cost £8 million to develop, features a business and 24-hour fitness centre, and two meeting rooms capable of accommodating up to 50 people, which can be used by residents and non-residents alike.

As reported, it was officially opened last month by the hero passenger of a light aircraft, John Wildey, who managed to land the plane he was in when the pilot was taken ill at the controls.
