Jurys Inn is itself a member of the Leonardo Hotels Group, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fattal Hotels, which operates more than 160 hotels in 16 countries, including the operating platform for all 36 hotels under the Jurys Inn brand, as well having the leaseholds for 15 of these.
Jurys Inn is also part-owned by Swedish company Pandox AB, a European hotel property investor with 122 hotels in 11 countries, including the freehold of 20 Jurys Inn hotels.
The heritage of the Jurys Group can be traced back to 1881, when William Jury opened his first boarding house in Dublin. The first Doyle Hotel, The Montrose, was built in Stillorgan, Dublin, in 1964 by PV Doyle. The newly enlarged organisation, now known as Jurys Doyle Hotel Group Limited, was formed in 1999, when the Doyle portfolio of Dublin, London and Washington DC hotels was acquired by the Jurys Hotel Group.
1993 saw the introduction of the Jurys Inns brand with the opening of the Galway and Christchurch (Dublin) Inns, in April and May respectively.
The first UK hotel opened in Belfast in April 1997, followed by the first hotel on the British mainland, Jurys Inn London, in May 1998. Further expansion came in 2001, with the acquisition of two properties owned by Chamberlain Hotels Limited.
In August 2009, the group opened its first hotel on the European mainland – in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. In 2014, three of the company's London hotels (Islington, Chelsea and Heathrow Airport) were brought under the Hilton Worldwide chain through a franchise agreement and rebranded accordingly – the former two becoming DoubleTree by Hilton hotels and the latter a Hilton Garden Inn.
Throughout 2015, Jurys Inn added 9 hotels that previously operated under the Thistle Hotels and The Hotel Collection brands: Jurys Inn Cheltenham, Jurys Inn Cardiff, Jurys Inn East Midlands Airport, Jurys Inn Oxford, Jurys Inn Middlesbrough, Jurys Inn Brighton Waterfront, Jurys Inn Hinckley Island, Jurys Inn Aberdeen Airport and Jurys Inn Inverness.
In December 2017, the Jurys Inn Group was acquired by Swedish hotel group Pandox and Israeli group Fattal Hotels from US private equity group Lone Star for £800 million (€908 million). This portfolio of 37 hotels includes the entire Jurys Inn portfolio of 36 hotels, along with one hotel at London's Heathrow airport, currently trading as a Hilton Garden Inn.
Under the Jurys Inn hotel brand, the company operates 36 hotels across the UK, Ireland and Czech Republic.
