With limited supply and the attraction of predictable yields, hotels continue to be a popular investment. But, in a sector with few transactions, and even fewer hotels that reach the open market, contacts and in-depth industry knowledge are vital for a sale.

To the outsider, the hotel investment market can appear a closed world. But Knight Young can open doors when it comes to hospitality investment.

From boutique hotels to big names, prime central to emerging markets, we have access to hotels and resorts and can even create bespoke opportunities to suit your investment requirements.
