Coppa Club is to open a new hotel and restaurant in Surrey, following the sale of The Georgian Hotel in Haslemere.
Richard Angel, co-founder of interior design house, Angel O’Donnell, has completed on the sale of the hotel and development site, with planning consent for the full refurbishment of the listed-building into a boutique hotel and restaurant and 18 new homes.
The site was sold for in excess of £4.6m following competing bids to developer Jaspar Group.
Coppa Club has been secured as the operator for the new business and will open its 9th bar and restaurant at the site subject to planning.
Consent has already been granted to renovate the historic building and develop 16 apartments and two cottages to the rear.
The Georgian Hotel currently spans 14,000 sq ft and accommodates 13 bedrooms.
Richard Angel, co-founder of Angel O’Donnell, said: “Having seen this project through from the initial acquisition to successfully achieving planning for a large and complex residential-led project with many challenges posed, I am delighted to have sold to Jaspar and secured Coppa Club as the operator for the restaurant and hotel. I am confident they will both create a truly one-of-a-kind establishment for locals, visitors and residents to enjoy.
Raj Pankhania, chairman of Jaspar Group said: “We are looking forward to transforming this exciting hotel and residential development site. The proposals developed and secured by Richard and the team will give this historic site a new lease of life and the Coppa Club will be a fantastic new addition to the area.”
Coppa Club first launched at The Great House in Sonning in August 2015. Since then, Coppa Club has opened 7 further venues across London and surrounding counties; Sonning- on-Thames, Tower Bridge, Henley-on-Thames, Maidenhead, Streatley-on-Thames, Cobham, Clifton Village and with further openings planned in the coming year.
The hotel, which is currently empty, has previously struggled to maintain viable business levels under various different ownership and management guises, and went up for auction in September last year in a bid to change its fortunes.
The Georgian Hotel was first put on the market in 2017 for £2.5m after going administration.
