The Queens Hotel in Llandudno, which was owned by Devoy Hotels for the past 36 years, has been sold to Northern Powerhouse Developments, as the company steps up its growth plans across Wales.
The 83-bed hotel, which was under the Devoy family ownership for the past 36 years, has been acquired by Northern Powerhouse Developments for off the guide price of £3m and joins the company’s already impressive portfolio.
Northern Powerhouse Developments (NPD) oversaw the £6m refurbishment of the neighbouring Llandudno Bay Hotel last year and has also secured ownership of two other hotels in North Wales alongside The Queens, Caer Rhun Hall and the Belmont Hotel.
The Queens Hotel consists of two ballrooms, two restaurants, a bar plus a car park alongside its 83 bedrooms.
Lesley Watmough from Fleurets commented: “The Devoy family have operated the hotel for over 36 years and have built up a very successful business.”
Gavin Woodhouse, chairman of Northern Powerhouse Developments said: “We are delighted to have secured ownership of this iconic hotel and are looking forward to continuing the success the Devoy family have enjoyed for nearly 40 years. The Queens enjoys an enviable position in the heart of this famous seaside town and together with our hotel management group Giant Hospitality, we plan to invest even further in the hotel to ensure it attracts the next generation of holidaymakers.”
He added: “It is our intention to build upon the success the Llandudno Bay Hotel has enjoyed, and while The Queens will attract a different type of guest we want to make it the ultimate destination for families to come and stay and enjoy all that Llandudno has to offer.”
