RBH, the UK's largest independent hotel management company, is delighted to have assumed management of 22 additional properties, following the announcement of a major deal with LRG Acquisition Limited in late 2014.

The handover of management for the 19 Holiday Inn hotels and three Crowne Plaza hotels is now complete, following a comprehensive transitional period over the past few months. Hotel teams surprised senior members of RBH management with numerous kind gestures and warm welcomes during introductory visits to properties this week.

Helder Pereira, Chief Executive Officer of RBH, said: "We are very pleased that the transition of so many properties into the RBH portfolio has gone smoothly and feel this is testament to how well we perform operationally.

"The 22 properties that have joined us have done so at an exciting time, with further growth plans in the pipeline for 2015, and some landmark new properties set to join the portfolio in the coming year."
