Sheffield hotels lead Yorkshire

Have your say

Hotels in Sheffield have seen income rise faster than anywhere else in Yorkshire after increasing room rates from £48 to almost £52 a night.

Research by accountants PKF shows occupancy fell slightly, but city hotels still managed to increase the average daily income from rooms by just over seven per cent from £35.70 to £38.29.

York recorded a five per cent rise; Leeds, just over three per cent and Harrogate suffered a fall of just over one per cent.

PKF partner Paul Clarke said signs of economic improvement and Christmas could result in an increase in the number of visitor to the region in the next few months.
