A family-owned hotel in St Annes near Blackpool has been sold to an expanding hotel company with expansion top of its agenda.
Lindum Hotel in St Annes is owned by the Rowley family and now has been acquired by HY Hotels as part of the group’s expansion plans.
The hotel group operates seven sites in total including the nearby Howarth House Hotel and aparthotel, and Chadwick Hotel in St Annes; Manchester’s Ainscow Hotel and The Block serviced apartments in Liverpool.
The Lindum Hotel has been operated by the Rowley family for more than 50 years, and has 80 bedrooms, a restaurant and function rooms.
HY Hotels owner Dan Yates revealed that the purchase is part of plans to expand in the North West, with further acquisitions likely in Blackpool and nearby Preston.
Yates said: “We saw this as a great acquisition to complement both businesses. “We’re now working with the former owners to plan an easy transaction to secure the future of both the hotel and the staff employed there, and take it onto new levels of success.
“We’ve got some great plans for the hotel and believe it will continue to attract visitors to the Fylde Coast for years to come.
“HY Hotels has grown well over the past couple of years and the senior management team is now looking at sites in Blackpool, Preston and further afield.”
