Spanish chain Barcelo Hotels has terminated the lease on its portfolio of British properties, which have been relaunched under the Puma Hotels Collection portfolio.
The group has 21 four-star properties in England, Scotland and Wales, including timeshare resort Walton Hall near Stratford-upon-Avon.
Barcelo took on the lease for the portfolio in September 2007, before which they were owned by Puma Hotels and operated under Puma’s Paramount Hotels brand. Control of the hotels has now been transferred back to Puma following an agreement that was reached earlier this month.
Puma had originally intended to revive the Paramount brand, but the properties will now operate under the Puma Hotels Collection.
Barcelo still operates more than 142 hotels across 16 countries around the world.
