Hotel and venue group Principal Hayley is to run The Oakley Court in Windsor.

Principal Hayley has entered into a joint venture with the owners of The Oakley Court, a 4 star country house hotel.

The deal will take Principal Hayley’s overall portfolio to 22 hotels and conference venues across the UK and Europe.

Heuston Hospitality currently manages the hotel. Once the two year management contract completes by next year the management of the hotel will be handed over to Principal Hayley.

Tony Troy, chief executive officer for Principal Hayley, said: ‘The Oakley Court is a perfect fit for us. We pride ourselves on offering an ‘a la carte' selection of dedicated conference venues and hotels. The Oakley Court will complement our hotel portfolio perfectly to provide another high quality leisure venue in Windsor.’

Christie & Co advised the owners of Oakley Court.
