OFF Developments has signed up a budget Hilton brand which is making its debut in Europe to anchor its leisure scheme in Northamptonshire.

Hilton Hotels will open its first Hampton by Hilton outside the Americas at Rockingham Park Leisure scheme on the outskirts of Corby in 2008.

The 86-room hotel will be the anchor for the £10m development on an ex-car showroom site.

The development, funded by Dunbar Bank, will also include the launch of a new Wetherspoons brand, The Samuel Lloyd, and the first Dominos Pizza in its new European format.

Bidwells and Budworth Hardcastle are advising OFF Developments.

Hilton Hotels will also open Hampton by Hilton hotels in Derby city centre and Quarry Hill Leeds, in a franchise agreement with Shiva Hotels.

Hilton’s partners for the Rockingham debut are Hotel Solutions London and Ramesh Dewan.
