The Dean Court Hotel in York has become the latest acquisition for The Inn Collection Group.
The latest addition to its portfolio is in line with the group’s ambitious expansion plan of pubs-with-rooms properties across the north of England.
The Grade-II listed building offers uninterrupted views over York Minster, with nearby attractions include Jorvik Viking Centre, the historic Shambles and the National Railway Museum.
The 40-bedroom site will begin trading immediately under The Inn Collection Group’s flagship ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore’ brand.
The group’s total site count is now 25 and The Dean Court Hotel is its fifth Yorkshire venue.
Managing director of The Inn Collection Group, Sean Donkin, said: “The Dean Court Hotel is an extraordinary site. We are absolutely delighted to be adding this spectacular venue and its team into our collection.
“It matches our pubs with rooms blueprint in every way, offering our expanding customer base an unrivalled location with a phenomenal USP in its proximity to York Minster.”
The Dean Court Hotel was purchased for an undisclosed figure in a deal negotiated by Colliers.
The head of hotels agency at Colliers, Julian Troup, said: “This is a unique and renowned hotel which benefits from attracting both international and national guests all year round because of its superb location in the heart of the historic city of York.
“Despite the targeted approach to marketing we were still able to generate significant interest in this outstanding opportunity.”
The site will continue trading in line with the group’s food-driven pubs with accommodation model ahead of a sympathetic refurbishment in 2022.
The Dean Court acquisition is the group’s sixth purchase of the year as it rolls out a new wave of acquisition and organic growth strategy, supported with banking from OakNorth.
In June the group made their Wearside debut with the opening of The Seaburn Inn on Sunderland’s seafront.
