The sale of Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa was officially announced on 15 December and will see all existing staff at the hotel retained by the new owners.
Graeme Bateman, Managing Director of Elite Hotels commented: “Naturally, we are sad to be parting company with Luton Hoo Hotel, but we do so in the knowledge that we have passed the custodianship of this wonderful property into safe hands. We wish Surinder Arora and his team at The Arora Group every success as they move Luton Hoo Hotel into a new era.
“May I also take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to Matthew Long, General Manager, and all his team and colleagues at Luton Hoo for their personal commitment over the past 14-plus years. We will miss you all greatly as a former mainstay of the Elite family.
“As a company, Elite Hotels remains fully committed to ensuring a bright future for its three remaining properties. Each hotel will continue to benefit from the group’s ownership and a considerable investment programme.
“Details of our exciting plans will be announced in due course.”
According to a statement from Elite Hotels, the sale of Luton Hoo will enable the group to forge ahead with a robust refurbishment plan for its three remaining properties: Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club in East Sussex, Tylney Hall Hotel & Gardens in Hampshire and The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne.
