We were pleased by the strong performance of our iconic Italian portfolio of properties, most of which are on track to achieve their best ever annual results," said Bob Lovejoy, Chairman and Interim Chief Executive Officer. "Worldwide revenue excluding Real Estate grew by 17% compared to the third quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA before Real Estate grew for the seventh consecutive quarter, increasing by 29% compared to the prior year quarter."Looking forward, we see a continuing positive demand picture in our markets.

We are also seeing good data from our digital media brand awareness campaign launched in the US during the quarter, with over 25 million individuals having already visited websites advertising the Orient-Express brand."Business HighlightsRevenue, excluding Real Estate, was $183.2 million in the third quarter of 2011, up $26.8 million or 17% from the third quarter of 2010.Revenue from Owned Hotels for the third quarter was $150.0 million, up $20.7 million or 16% from the third quarter of 2010. On a same store basis, Owned Hotels RevPAR was up 19% in US dollars and up 14% in local currency.Trains and Cruises revenue in the third quarter was $28.9 million compared to $23.6 million in the third quarter of 2010, an increase of 22%.Adjusted EBITDA before Real Estate was $46.7 million for the third quarter, up 29% compared to $36.3 million in the prior year. The principal increase was at the Italian hotels, where EBITDA was up $7.4 million from the same period in the prior year, led by Hotel Cipriani, Venice (up $2.4 million) and the two Sicilian properties (up $3.1 million). Other improvements included Reid's Palace, Madeira (up $1.1 million), La Residencia, Mallorca (up $1.0 million), the Copacabana Palace Hotel (up $0.8 million), and share of earnings from PeruRail (up $1.3 million), offset by The Westcliff, Johannesburg (down $1.2 million) and Mount Nelson Hotel, Cape Town (down $1.4 million).Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations for the third quarter were $19.9 million ($0.19 per common share), compared with $6.1 million ($0.07 per common share) in the third quarter of 2010. Net losses, after tax effected impairments of $57.8 million ($0.56 per common share), for the third quarter were $50.1 million ($0.49 per common share), compared with a net loss of $22.5 million ($0.25 per common share) in the third quarter of 2010.Property Portfolio HighlightsIn September, the Company launched its first ever Internet-based brand awareness campaign across the US, called "A journey like no other", aimed at building recognition of Orient-Express within its largest customer market. The eight week campaign highlights experiences at selected properties using digital media advertisements placed on a variety of lifestyle and travel websites. These digital advertisements link to a microsite, http://www.orient-express.com/journeylikenoother, where nine short films follow the travel experiences of a cast of fictional characters and real-life staff members.During the quarter the Company finalized a new $45 million loan facility for the refurbishment works at El Encanto, a 92-key landmark hotel in Santa Barbara that will be one of the premier luxury properties in Southern California when it opens in late 2012.In September, the Company launched Bar '21', a 10-seat bar and lounge on the ground floor of the '21' Club serving a casual yet refined menu, including a new version of the famed '21' burger. The bar welcomes the guest upon arrival with a warm, informal atmosphere that remains true to the inspiration of the original '21' Club space.Several of the Company's properties received significant awards in the quarter. Readers of Condé Nast Traveller (UK) voted the Hiram Bingham train, operating between Cuzco and Machu Picchu, Best Specialist Train Operator in its prestigious Reader's Travel Awards 2011. Readers of the US edition of the same magazine placed Keswick Hall, Virginia first in the Best Small US Resort category and The Observatory Hotel, Sydney, Best Hotel in Oceania. Members of Virtuoso, North America's network of leading luxury travel specialists, voted Hotel Cipriani Hotel of the Year at its 2011 Best of the Best Awards. Regional PerformanceEurope:In the third quarter, revenue from Owned Hotels was $89.0 million, up $16.6 million or 23% from $72.4 million in the third quarter of 2010. Third quarter revenue increased at all locations, but continued to be led by strong demand from the UK and US at the Italian properties. Revenue from Italian properties increased by $11.4 million or 25% compared to the same quarter in 2010. Same store RevPAR in Europe was up 30% from the prior year in US dollars (up 21% in local currency). EBITDA for the quarter was $36.7 million compared to $28.1 million in the third quarter of 2010, which represents an $8.6 million or 31% increase. This improvement arose largely from the Italian hotels where the impact of refurbishments at Hotel Cipriani contributed to EBITDA growth of $2.4 million. Compared with the third quarter of 2010, the Company's two hotels in Sicily achieved year on year EBITDA growth of $3.1 million. During the quarter the region also included a non-recurring management restructuring charge of $1.2 million.North America:Revenue from Owned Hotels for the quarter was $24.4 million, up 5% from $23.3 million in the third quarter of 2010, largely due to a strong September performance driving a revenue growth in the quarter of $0.9 million or 7% at Charleston Place, Charleston. Same store RevPAR in the region increased by 8% in both US dollars and local currency. EBITDA was $1.5 million compared to $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2010.Rest of World:Southern Africa:Third quarter revenue was $7.3 million, compared to $10.0 million in the third quarter of 2010. Same store RevPAR was down 26% in both US dollars and local currency. EBITDA was $0.1 million, compared to $2.7 million in the third quarter of 2010. The decrease was largely the result of the absence of the football World Cup played in South Africa in 2010, although EBITDA has also been negatively impacted by new competition in both Cape Town and Johannesburg, resulting in significant pressure on both rates and margins.South America:Revenue increased by 22% to $17.7 million in the third quarter of 2011, from $14.5 million in the third quarter of 2010. Year on year revenue increased at Hotel das Cataratas, Iguassu Falls, by $0.8 million or 32% following the major refurbishment that was completed in November 2010. Year on year revenue increased at Copacabana Palace by $2.2 million or 22%, driven by record occupancy and strong growth in average daily rate with an increase in US guest numbers. Same store RevPAR in the region increased by 15% in both US dollars and local currency. EBITDA was $2.5 million, compared to $1.3 million last year.Asia Pacific:Revenue for the third quarter of 2011 was $11.6 million, an increase of $2.4 million or 26% year over year, reflecting strong growth at all properties, most notably at Napasai, Koh Samui where revenue increased by $0.7 million or 74% year on year following the creation of a new lagoon. Same store RevPAR increased by 21% in both US dollars and local currency. EBITDA was $3.0 million compared to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2010.Additional InformationHotel management and part-ownership interests:EBITDA for the third quarter of 2011 was $1.3 million compared to $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2010. The improvement was largely attributable to the Company's share of results from Peru hotels, as the third quarter of 2010 was negatively impacted by flooding and landslides in the country earlier in that year. The quarterly result also included $0.4 million of costs relating to the Company's initiative to enter the Management Contract business.Restaurants:Revenue from '21' Club in the third quarter of 2011 was $2.5 million compared to $2.4 million in the same quarter of 2010. EBITDA was a loss of $1.8 million after a $1.5 million non-recurring charge relating to the settlement of employee litigation, compared to a loss of $0.4 million in the same quarter of 2010.Trains and Cruises:Revenue increased by $5.3 million or 22% to $28.9 million in the third quarter of 2011 from $23.6 million in the prior year, reflecting strong increases in all products. EBITDA was $9.0 million compared to $6.9 million in the same quarter of 2010, largely due to an increase in share of results from PeruRail of $1.3 million as the business has now fully recovered from the floods and landslides of 2010.Central costs:  In the third quarter of 2011, central costs were $10.3 million compared with $7.6 million in the prior year period. The increase was largely due to non-recurring professional fees and management restructuring costs of $2.0 million in the current quarter.Real Estate:In the third quarter of 2011, there was an EBITDA loss of $1.6 million from Real Estate activities, primarily related to Porto Cupecoy, Sint Maarten, compared with a loss of $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2010. During the quarter, the Company recognized $3.9 million of revenue from six units transferred to customers. Cumulatively, at the end of the quarter, 113 units or 61% of the total had been sold. In addition to the EBITDA loss, the Company recorded an impairment of $38.6 million at Porto Cupecoy due to changes in future sales and cost estimates in light of recent sales experience and current market conditions.Depreciation, amortization and impairment:The depreciation and amortization charge for the third quarter of 2011 was $12.0 million compared with $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2010.The Company recorded a total pre-tax impairment charge for the quarter of $64.8 million. The total charge included the impairment charge at Porto Cupecoy noted above, as well as impairments of $23.9 million at Keswick Hall and $2.3 million at Casa de Sierra Nevada, San Miguel de Allende.Interest:The interest charge for the third quarter of 2011 was $13.0 million, up from $8.0 million in the third quarter of 2010 principally due to swap and loan termination costs of $3.5 million related to loan facilities in Brazil and Italy, coupled with higher interest rates on refinanced debt.Tax:The tax benefit for the quarter was $4.8 million compared to a charge of $9.3 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The third quarter 2011 tax benefit included a deferred tax credit of $4.2 million arising from fixed asset timing differences following depreciation of certain local currencies against the US dollar in the quarter, compared with a deferred tax charge of $1.3 million in the same quarter in the prior year. The current year quarter additionally included a deferred tax credit of $7.0 million arising from fixed asset timing differences following the impairment of various fixed assets, compared with $nil in the same quarter in the prior year.Investment:  The Company invested $14.1 million during the quarter, including $3.2 million for the ongoing restoration of El Encanto, $2.8 million at La Samanna, Saint Martin and $2.3 million at the Copacabana Palace for the planned refurbishment of rooms and public areas, and routine capital expenditure at other properties.Balance SheetAt September 30, 2011, the Company had long-term debt (including the current portion and debt of consolidated variable interest entities) of $662.7 million, working capital loans of $0.2 million, and cash balances of $133.0 million (including $14.0 million of restricted cash), giving a total net debt of $529.9 million compared with total net debt of $576.0 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011.Undrawn amounts available to the Company at September 30, 2011 under short-term lines of credit were $4.6 million, bringing total cash availability (excluding restricted cash) at September 30, 2011, to $123.6 million.At September 30, 2011, approximately 53% of the Company's debt was at fixed interest rates and 47% was at floating interest rates. The weighted average maturity of the debt was approximately 3.6 years and the weighted average interest rate (including margin and swaps) was approximately 4.3%.At September 30, 2011, the Company had $68.4 million of debt repayments due within 12 months. These are expected to be met through a combination of operating cash flow, refinancing of the facilities and utilization of available cash.During the quarter, the Company completed the refinancing of an $88 million loan secured by its two Brazilian properties. The new $115 million loan includes a $15 million capital expenditure facility to assist with the planned refurbishment of the main building of the Copacabana Palace to take place during 2012. The new loan has a term of three years. The prior $88 million loan was due to mature in October 2012, and represented the Company's only significant debt maturity in 2012.Also in the quarter, the Company signed a new $45 million loan facility for the completion of El Encanto. The loan has a term of three years with two one-year extensions.As reported in the Company's second quarter 2011 earnings news release, the Company's balance sheet as at December 31, 2010 has been restated to correct an understatement of non-current deferred income tax liabilities. The prior period increase to non-current deferred tax liabilities of $6.0 million (and a corresponding decrease to retained earnings) does not affect the Company's net losses or losses per share for the year ended December 31, 2010.Reconciliation and Adjustments Nine months Three months ended ended $'000 - except per share amounts September 30 September 30 2011 2010 2011 2010 EBITDA (24,450) 2,589 13,338 30,909 Real Estate 1,572 1,884 4,680 4,663 EBITDA before Real Estate (22,878) 4,473 18,018 35,572 Adjusted items: Gain on disposal (1) 18 - (502) - Impairment (2) 64,787 30,511 64,787 30,511 Legal costs (3) - 13 - (157) Grand Hotel Timeo & Villa Sant'Andrea (4) - 84 - 1,724 Cipriani litigation (5) - - - (788) '21' Club settlement (6) 1,546 - 2,546 - Peru hotels depreciation adjustment (7) - 1,240 - 1,240 Management restructuring (8) 3,191 (11) 4,707 1,111 Adjusted EBITDA before Real Estate 46,664 36,310 89,556 69,213 Reported net loss attributable to Orient-Express Hotels Ltd.

other costs.Amortization of deferred financing costs on repayment of debt.Charges on swaps that did not qualify for hedge accounting.Foreign exchange is a non-cash item arising on the translation of certain assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the reporting currency of the entity concerned.Management evaluates the operating performance of the Company's segments on the basis of segment net earnings before interest, foreign exchange, tax (including tax on unconsolidated companies), depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), and believes that EBITDA is a useful measure of operating performance, for example to help determine the ability to incur capital expenditure or service indebtedness, because it is not affected by non-operating factors such as leverage and the historical cost of assets. EBITDA is also a financial performance measure commonly used in the hotel and leisure industry, although the Company's EBITDA may not be comparable in all instances to that disclosed by other companies. EBITDA does not represent net cash provided by operating, investing and financing activities under US generally accepted accounting principles (US GAAP), is not necessarily indicative of cash available to fund all cash flow needs, and should not be considered as an alternative to earnings from operations or net earnings under US GAAP for purposes of evaluating operating performance.Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings of the Company are non-GAAP financial measures and do not have any standardized meanings prescribed by US GAAP. They are, therefore, unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies, which may be calculated differently, and should not be considered as an alternative to net earnings, cash flow from operating activities or any other measure of performance prescribed by US GAAP. Management considers adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings to be meaningful indicators of operations and uses them as measures to assess operating performance because, when comparing current period performance with prior periods and with budgets, management does so after having adjusted for non-recurring items, foreign exchange (a non-cash item), disposals of assets or investments, and certain other items (some of which may be recurring) which management does not consider indicative of ongoing operations or which could otherwise have a material effect on the comparability of the Company's operations. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net earnings are also used by investors, analysts and lenders as measures of financial performance because, as adjusted in the foregoing manner, the measures provide a consistent basis on which the performance of the Company can be assessed.This news release and related oral presentations by management contain, in addition to historical information, forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. These include statements regarding earnings outlook, investment plans, debt reduction and debt refinancings, asset sales and similar matters that are not historical facts. These statements are based on management's current expectations and are subject to a number of uncertainties and risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause a difference include, but are not limited to, those mentioned in the news release and oral presentations, unknown effects on the travel and leisure markets of terrorist activity and any police or military response, varying customer demand and competitive considerations, failure to realize hotel bookings and reservations and planned property development sales as actual revenue, inability to sustain price increases or to reduce costs, rising fuel costs adversely impacting customer travel and the Company's operating costs, fluctuations in interest rates and currency values, uncertainty of negotiating and completing proposed asset sales, debt refinancings, capital expenditures and acquisitions, inability to reduce funded debt as planned or to agree bank loan agreement waivers or amendments, adequate sources of capital and acceptability of finance terms, possible loss or amendment of planning permits and delays in construction schedules for expansion or development projects, delays in reopening properties closed for repair or refurbishment and possible cost overruns, shifting patterns of tourism and business travel and seasonality of demand, adverse local weather conditions, changing global or regional economic conditions and weakness in financial markets which may adversely affect demand, legislative, regulatory and political developments, and possible new challenges to the Company's corporate governance structure. Further information regarding these and other factors is included in the filings by the Company with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.Orient-Express Hotels will
