Over 50 years ago Sandman Hotel Group opened our first location, a quaint Inn located in Smithers, British Columbia, Canada. Since then, we have grown into a truly international company with over 50 locations across Canada, the USA, the UK and growing. From those humbling beginnings, Sandman has come a long way.

In 2011, Sandman expanded into the UK with Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel, situated directly across the street from St. James' Park and in the building that once held the offices of the prestigious Newcastle Brewery, brewers of Newcastle Brown Ale. This closely followed by London Gatwick, a project designed to create a memorable and enjoyable experience for those travelling through the airport and those staying at leisure guests. In the summer of 2018, our group saw the launch of Sandman Signature Aberdeen Hotel & Spa, the groups' flagship property in the UK boasting 218 guest bedrooms, a specialist whisky bar and a Grand Ballroom with a capacity of more than 300.

In October 2019, we acquired the stunning Portmarnock Resort, Dublin's only coastal resort - complete with Championship Golf Links, a spa and award-winning restaurants. Sandman Hotel Group UK&I will expand further in 2023 with the planned opening of Sandman Signature Glasgow Hotel.
