Two booming boutique hotels have gone up for sale, one in Wales and one in Cumbria, as the owners look to relocate and take a step back from business.
The Beaufort Park Hotel is a three-star hotel located near Chester and set in 3.7 acres, home to 106 bedrooms. The hotel houses the Arches Bar and the Orchard Restaurant and in recent years the hotel has achieved a number of awards including Winner of the ‘Warmest Welcome in North Wales’, Winner of ‘Best Place to Stay 2014’ and most recently ‘2017 Top Rated Award’ by Laterooms.com.
It was first opened in 1987 by The Duke of Westminster before its acquisition by the Beaufort Group.
It is now on the market for £3.5m.
The second property up for sale is The Crown Hotel, which sits in 1.8 acres of land in the village of Wetheral in Cumbria. The four-star hotel is home to 51 bedroom, plus a large range of facilities including a village pub, a leisure club and gym, pool, Jacuzzi and steam rooms. There is also an AA Rosette restaurant.
The Crown Hotel is on the market for £3.75m and each property is being offered on an individual basis, while a group deal will also be considered.
Ryan Lynn, associate director in Christie & Co’s Manchester office, comments: “Our clients have owned and operated The Beaufort Park Hotel and The Crown Hotel for a number of years and are now looking for a change of lifestyle due to retirement and relocation. They have worked hard to get the businesses into fantastic shape, with a strong team in place and the right facilities for the locations they are in. This is a great opportunity for an experienced buyer / hotelier to pick up to great and profitable businesses and really drive them forward.”
