Arora completes construction of Premier Inn at Heathrow T4

Hotel operator Arora and hospitality firm Whitbread have completed the construction of a new Premier Inn hotel located adjacent to Terminal 4 (T4) at London Heathrow Airport. Premier Inn has now taking control of the hotel ahead of its scheduled opening in May 2017.

Grove Developments, the construction division of the Arora Group, was commissioned by Whitbread to develop the new hotel specifically for Premier Inn. This is Arora’s sixth project with Premier Inn within the past six years.

Arora Group and Whitbread’s previous partnerships have seen new hotels opened in key transport hub locations such as Aberdeen Airport, London Stansted, London Heathrow, and London Gatwick (North Terminal), which is the largest Premier Inn in the UK with more than 700 bedrooms. The new 613-bedroom Heathrow hotel is directly linked to T4 via a short covered walkway.

Surinder Arora, founder and chairman of the Arora Group, said, “We are privileged to have worked closely with Whitbread, the UK’s largest hotel chain by room numbers, over the past few years, with this announcement marking the successful completion of our sixth Premier Inn project within six years. It’s been a pleasure for me and the Grove Developments team to work from start to finish with Whitbread to ensure the hotel’s specifications are optimum for their Premier Inn customers and delivered in line with their requirements.”

Derek Griffin, head of acquisitions for Premier Inn, said, “Our business is built on giving our guests the best locations and delivering on consistency, quality, service and value. Our new T4 hotel at Heathrow will do exactly that, adding 613 bedrooms to our overall airport estate and meaning we have hotels at all of the UK’s main airports. By working with the Arora Group on a sixth successful project, we’re also demonstrating the effectiveness of our relationships with our property partners. These partnerships are vital as we continue to grow Premier Inn in line with customer demand and bring even more great sites into our network.”
