Hotel management company Focus Hotels Management has secured the management contract for the Polo Club Hotel – a forthcoming development at the 200-acre Dallas Burston Polo Club near Southam in Warwickshire

The acquisition comes at a time of growth for Focus Hotels as it continues to expand its portfolio of upscale hospitality ventures. The hotel will become the latest addition to the Focus Hotel Collection, a group of independent hotels managed by Focus Hotels Management. 

As part of the Dallas Burston Polo Club's broader strategy for expansion, the hotel will create a retreat for visitors and patrons while improving accessibility to the world of equestrian sport. Set to open this year, the property will offer high-end luxury and close ties to the venue’s sports and events facilities, including four polo grounds, an equestrian arena, a stylish gastropub and the 3000-capacity IXL Events Centre. 

Devin Grosse, CEO of Focus Hotels, said: “This collaboration presents a unique prospect to curate a destination that not only embodies first-class luxury but also resonates on a global scale. Our dedicated team looks forward to crafting a world-class experience that blends the exceptional service ethos of Focus Hotels with the distinctive vision and quality of Dallas Burston Polo Club." 

Dr Dallas Burston, owner of the Dallas Burston Polo Club and Polo Club Hotel, added:  “We are delighted to partner with Focus Hotels for the management of our upcoming hotel. Our shared ambition is for our award-winning venue to become a leading destination for business and leisure in England, and we are confident that the Polo Club Hotel will contribute significantly to this vision with Focus at the helm.”
