Accor has entered into two franchise agreements with Think Options to create two ibis budget hotels in Warrington and Knutsford.
ibis budget Warrington Lymm Services and ibis budget Knutsford will be operated by the Signature Management Services and join the 86-strong ibis hotel family network in the UK.
ibis budget is the nifty, comfortable economy brand from Accor with a network of 46,547 rooms in 16 countries.
As a member of the ibis family it shares the key values: modernity, simplicity and well-being.
Ibis budget hotels offer large comfortable cosy beds and free Wi-Fi all at a budget price.
ibis budget Warrington Lymm Services has 61 rooms and is located on the M6 motorway service station at Junction 20.
ibis budget Knutsford will offer 32 rooms and is also situated on the M6 motorway towards Manchester.
Both hotels are currently going through a refurbishment programme to bring the hotels in line with ibis budget’s essential comfort at a budget price offer for guests.
Thomas Dubaere, managing director, Accor UK & Ireland said: “We are delighted to add the ibis budget Warrington Lymm Services and the ibis budget Knutsford to the rapidly growing Accor network.
“In joining the Accor Group, these two economy hotels will benefit from our robust distribution services, strong awareness of the ibis brand and expert support from our Hotel Services team.”
The hotels join the rapidly growing portfolio of ibis hotel family hotels in the UK.
Other ibis budget hotels include ibis budget Birmingham Centre, ibis budget London Whitechapel and the soon-to-open ibis budget Edinburgh Park. Accor currently operates 200 hotels in the UK.
