Hotel management company checks in to Sheffield

Hotel management company RBH Hospitality Management has been appointed by Stapleford Ventures to operate the new Courtyard by Marriott Sheffield, due to open in spring 2023.

Located at the entrance to the Rotherham Advanced Manufacturing Park, which forms part of the residential Waverley Development, the 150-bedroom property will include a brasserie restaurant open to local residents, as well as a fitness centre and meeting facilities.

As well as operating the Courtyard by Marriott Sheffield, RBH has also been selected to provide technical assistance and IT project management throughout the build phase.

David Hart, CEO of RBH Hospitality Management, said: “This new hotel is a great addition to our 2023 pipeline and a reflection of the continued success in our growth strategy. We are delighted to have forged a new relationship with Stapleford Ventures, a family-run business led by Neil Searle, that importantly holds a similar culture and set of values to our own and we look forward to growing our partnership together.”

Neil Searle, managing director of Stapleford Ventures, said: “We are excited to bring the first Marriott-branded hotel to the Sheffield area and to be working alongside RBH who we know will bring a depth of experience to the project. Courtyard by Marriott Sheffield will be a great addition to the area, offering the perfect destination for business travellers in light of its proximity to the business park, as well as for leisure visitors. Plans are well underway and we look forward to opening this fantastic property in partnership with RBH and Marriott in 2023.”
