A hotel in Meltham has been acquired by Harimoor Hospitality in a seven-figure deal.
Durker Roods Hotel, near Huddersfield, has been sold to Yorkshire-based Jay Patel, director at Harimoor Hospitality, and marks his second hotel acquisition.
The 29-bed hotel is home to a large banqueting suite, lounge bar and meeting rooms. The property was first converted into a hotel in the mid 1970s and had been the former residence of business entrepreneur Sir David Brown of Aston Martin cars’ fame, which the lounge bar has been designed after.
The purchase of Durker Roods Hotel was boosted by funding support by the Royal Bank of Scotland and adds to The Welcome Inn in Rotherham in the Harimoor Hospitality portfolio.
Jay Patel, director at Harimoor Hospitality said: “We are delighted to complete the acquisition of Durker Roods Hotel. This is a well known and attractive hotel set in an appealing village location with close links to the M62 and Huddersfield. This is an excellent addition to our hotel portfolio alongside The Welcome Inn in Rotherham and we will retain current staff to ensure the smooth running of the hotel. We are grateful for the assistance provided by Nick Milner at the Royal Bank of Scotland who has structured loan facilities to support the purchase. This is an exciting time for our family as we acquire our second hotel and we are looking forward to welcoming new and existing customers to the hotel.”
