Peel Holdings has begun work on its hotel development at Robin Hood airport.

The 103 bed Ramada Encore hotel at the Doncaster-Sheffield airport in south Yorkshire is a £7m development close to the airport’s business park.

Ramada, which has agreed to operate the hotel through its franchise partner Wyndham Hotel Group, will open in summer 2008.

Robin Hood business park is a 62 acre site adjacent to Robin Hood airport which has tenants including Priority Sites and Business Homes. The airport opened in April 2005.
