Brown’s Hotel, the historic 17th century coaching inn in Tavistock, Devon has been acquired by pub operator JD Wetherspoon for its now 30-plus strong hotel brand.

The 21-bedroom, award-winning, coaching inn was sold by Christie + Co.

In addition to being Grade II Listed, Brown’s Hotel holds a 4-Star Gold Award from Visit Britain, 2 AA Rosettes for food quality and a host of other awards given to both the hotel and its team in recent years.

It has the added attraction of being located in the pictuesque market town of Tavistock, a gateway to Dartmoor National Park.

Matthew Smith, Director of Christie + Co’s Exeter office handled the sale.

He tells Boutique Hotelier: “Brown’s Hotel is an excellent acquisition for JD Wetherspoon and fits well with its growing hotel portfolio.

“The hotel has a long history of offering high standards of service to corporate and leisure clients, who return time-after-time to sample both the hotel’s high quality service and the obvious delights of the surrounding area.”
