Tasburgh House Hotel in Bath has been sold to private buyer for £1.6m.
In a deal spearheaded by Savills on behalf of owner Susan Keeling, the historic property set in 5.7 acres has secured new ownership as it embarks on its ‘next chapter’.
Details about the new owner have not been disclosed.
Tasburgh House Hotel has been owned by Keeling since 1996, and comprises 15 bedrooms, with a lounge, bar and dining room forming the hotel’s public areas.
It first went on the market in April with an asking price of £2m.
The property itself dates back to 1891, having been built by the Royal Photographer to Queen Victoria, and was taken over by former air stewardess Keeling over two decades ago.
She then gave the ‘tired and dated’ bed and breakfast a new lease of life as a five-star boutique guesthouse, renovating the entire building with a ‘much-needed’ facelift.
Commenting on the sale, James Greenslade, associate director in the hotels team at Savills, comments: “Tasburgh House is a successful hotel with a rich history and we are delighted to have been able to secure new owners to deliver the next chapter in its life.”
