GLASGOW-based hotels group Stakis announced yesterday that its Glasgow Airport Hotel, formerly the Normandy, had been sold to Cosmopolitan Hotels in a deal believed to be worth about #6m.

Built by Sir Rio Stakis in 1973, the three-star establishment is part of a larger disposal programme designed to reposition Stakis at the upper end of the market.

The company said negotiations were also under way for the sale of its Falkirk and Paisley hotels, two other properties which do not fit the newly-defined profile.
