Executive Chairman of Apex Hotels, Norman Springford, was previously an employee of the Inland Revenue and owner/operator of a number of public houses, bingo halls, and the Edinburgh Playhouse. In 1996 Norman opened his first hotel, the Apex International Hotel, in Edinburgh. The group now own 9 UK hotels across London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.[3] In recent years, Apex Hotels re-opened the historic Waterloo Hotel on Edinburgh's Waterloo Place in March 2009,[4] and converted a former office block on Copthall Avenue near London Wall into the Apex London Wall Hotel in November 2009[5] and developed the Apex Temple Court Hotel at Serjeant's Inn on Fleet Street, which opened in March 2012.[6] The newest hotel to the group was the Apex City of Bath Hotel, which opened in August 2017
