The four-star, 155-bedroom Tamburlaine Hotel in Cambridge has been sold to Dalata Hotel Group and will be rebranded to become Clayton Hotel Cambridge in the coming months.
The hotel was opened in 2017 by owners O’Callaghan Hotel Group and marked the first UK venture for the Irish Group.
Dalata will operate the hotel under a 30-year lease, and will become the third London property in the portfolio.
The group plans to reconfigure the property to add a further five bedrooms to the Tamburlaine, giving 160 in total following its rebrand to Clayton Hotel Cambridge.
“The acquisition of the leasehold interest of this hotel is another important step in our stated strategy of expanding our Maldron & Clayton brands in key cities across the UK,” said Dermot Crowley, Dalata Deputy CEO, business development and finance.
“The property is an ideal fit for our Clayton brand, under which we now operate nine hotels across seven cities in the UK.”
Dalata Hotel Group operates Clayton hotels in key UK locations including Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds and Manchester.
The Group also owns the Maldron Hotels brand, which earlier this year announced plans for its first London property, located in the capital’s Shoreditch district.
