Hotels in Scotland are still outperforming their counterparts in other parts of the UK, new figures have shown.

According to a Scotsman report published on Friday, occupancy rates as well as revenue figures for Scottish hotel properties have remained higher than those in England, Northern Ireland and Wales through the summer months.

The figures come via a new report from advisory group BDO LLP. The report also revealed a 4.3 per cent year-on-year increase in room yield during the month of June to £63.93. Meanwhile, Edinburgh and Aberdeen were ranked as the third and fourth best performing UK cities in terms of revenue behind Oxford and first-place Windsor.

BDO spokesman Alastair Rae said in a statement that the new figures show that the summer season is turning out to be better than expected for Scottish operators despite a minor decline in revenue for Edinburgh properties. He went on to add that the hospitality sector in Scotland may have ‘turned the corner’ although he noted that it would likely still be some time before figures reach pre-recession levels.
