NI hospitality group McKeever Hotels saw its sales rise by a modest 0.4% to £11.3m last year but warned that Covid-19 presents many risks for the firm this year.

The business, which runs Adair Arms Hotel, Ballymena, Corr's Corner Hotel, Newtownabbey, Dillons Hotel, Letterkenny and Dunsilly Hotel and Dunadry Hotel, Antrim said in its latest financial report that rising costs of food and energy as well as more competitive stock coming onto the hotel market presented challenges to the business, even before the outbreak of coronavirus.

And it said it anticipated further hardships as a direct result of Covid-19 and Brexit.
