According to statistics given by many research organizations, the UK's hotel industry is one of the economy's worst-hit sectors during the COVID-19 pandemic and saw a significant contraction in April-June 2020. Due to the second wave, the domestic hospitality sector, which COVID-19-related disruptions have badly impacted, also experienced a significant fall in 2021.

The impact of Brexit uncertainty is affecting the investment environment, yet the growing demand is helping the country attract investors.
