Award-winning hoteliers acquire five-star B&B in Bath


Villa Magdala, a luxury five-star B&B in Bath, has been sold to an award-winning pair of hoteliers by Christie + Co.

The bed and breakfast was previously owed by John and Amanda Willmott, who have now passed the reins over to Ian and Christa Taylor, to now take full control of the 20-bedroom property.

Villa Magdala will now join the Taylor’s existing hospitality business in Bath, the Abbey Hotel on North Parade.

Ian Taylor comments: “We are very excited to have acquired a second site in the city and look forward to developing great synergy between the two properties. With a strong base of business in place for the summer months we will continue to operate without making any immediate changes; however we look forward to developing the business going forward and introducing new ideas and concepts that will enhance the offering.”

Jonathan Hill, Director at Christie + Co’s Bristol office handled the sale. He comments: “We are delighted to have been able to introduce Ian and Christa Taylor to Villa Magdala and we wish them every success in their new venture.”
