Daish’s Holidays has welcomed two new hotels to its group as well as a fleet of 13 coaches after confirming the acquisition of Robinsons Holidays. 

Abbey Lawn Hotel in Torquay

Daish’s now owns the Abbey Lawn Hotel in Torquay. 

Its portfolio now includes 12 hotels - with the addition of the Imperial Hotel in Eastbourne and the Abbey Lawn Hotel in Torquay - located in ten destinations across the UK.

As part of the acquisition, the extra coaches will operate from a range of pick-up locations in the north west. The coaches will remain as the Robinsons Holidays brand, although now owned by Daish’s while the hotels will operate as Daish’s hotels. 

Daish’s managing director, Jeanne Wilson said: “We are thrilled to confirm that Robinsons is joining our family business. There is a fantastic synergy between the two companies, and we are committed to building and enhancing Robinsons’ offering, that has been established in the UK for almost 100 years.

“Despite a year of disruption and industry uncertainty due to the health crisis, we are proud to be in the strong position of expansion and are excited to unveil our new services in January.

“Growing our reach into the north west has always been a business goal of ours and we are pleased to provide fantastic new holiday options for our loyal guests.”

Daish's Imperial Hotel in Eastbourne

The Imperial Hotel in Eastbourne is the second of the new hotels and is due to reopen in February after refurbishments. 

Robinsons’ guests will now also be able to choose from coach travel options to Daish’s hotels from a range of pick-up locations in the north west including Cumbria, Cheshire and Lancashire.

Daish’s has said it will implement its existing model at the new hotels, meaning that there will be nightly live entertainment along with package deals including half board and coach transport.

The hotels will open in February once Daish’s has undertaken minor refurbishments.
