Growing hotel developer Northern Powerhouse Developments has expanded its footprint once again, with the acquisition of two new properties in Halifax.
The group, which it was revealed had taken over The Royal Hotel in Woolacombe last week, has purchased The Imperial Crown Hotel and The Old Golf House Hotel, based in Huddersfield.
Both hotels have been acquired from parent company Corus, which decided to sell the properties for an undisclosed sum.
The Imperial Crown Hotel is a three-star hotel and is home to 41 bedrooms and the Crown Bar and Restaurant. Now the view is to transform the property in a ‘boutique style’ hotel in a bid to attract a younger clientele.
The Old Golf Course Hotel is a 17th century hotel and wedding venue in Outlane and is situated in three acres with a five-hole pitch and putt course also on site. It was originally part of Outlane Golf Club.
Ben Dews, sales director of Northern Powerhouse Developments, said: “We are extremely pleased with these acquisitions which should be completed by February. The two hotels will be run by our sister company Giant Hospitality.”
Halifax town centre is an area going through a period of redevelopment, which is being bolstered by a £20m project to transform the town’s Piece Hall, and making the town attractive to investors.
