Outside of the central zone, other areas with considerable stock include Hillingdon and
Hammersmith and Fulham in the west with 7.3% and 3.5% of London's total stock of
serviced bedrooms in 2005. Over the next five years, the key growth areas are expected
to by Brent, Hillingdon and Hounslow. The growth in Brent will more than double the
current estimated stock, while growth in Hounslow will build on healthy growth to date.
Hotel stock is the smallest in the north with just 1.9% of the total stock. There has been
modest growth of just 400 new bedrooms over the period to 2005, and at this stage, no
new developments are planned for the area.
Croydon has the largest stock of serviced accommodation in the south accounting for
1.7% of the total stock in London and has had the greatest level of growth over the period
to 2005. Over the 2005-2010 period modest growth of 521 new bedrooms are currently
in the pipeline.
These trends are summarised in Figure 3 below.
