A popular boutique hotel in King’s Lynn, Norfolk is looking for a new owner.
Bank House, which overlooks the River Ouse, has gone up for sale with an asking price of £1.9m for the freehold, as its current owners look to build up business elsewhere.
The detached Grade-II listed building has been owned by Anthony & Jeannette Goodrich for the past decade, who have invested significantly in the property, refurbishing and converting the building into a contemporary boutique in the town.
Open throughout the year, Bank House is home to 12 bedrooms, a bar and dining space with over 150 covers, plus an external decking area adjacent to the river with a further 60 covers.
The Goodrichs also run the Rose & Crown in the Norfolk village of Snettisham, dubbed as one of the most successful in the region.
They are now looking to move on from Bank House to concentrate on building their other business.
They said: “We are very proud of what we have achieved at Bank House in building it up to be THE place to eat, drink, and stay in King’s Lynn, and believe it has terrific potential for growth, benefitting from the town’s ongoing regeneration programme, and the exciting waterfront development proposals currently being drawn up.”
Tim Gooding, director at Christie & Co’s Ipswich office, who is handling the sale, comments: “Bank House really is one of the most attractive and historic properties we presently have on the market and its growth trajectory proves the popularity of the operation and the demand for its quality offering. We anticipate a lot of interest being generated and can supply further particulars and information to interested parties as and when required.”
