Colliers International’s Hotels Agency division has been appointed to sell two hotels in Canterbury, with the two established businesses expected to receive strong interest from potential buyers.
The three-star, 15-bedroom Canterbury Hotel and 15-bedroom Castle House Hotel are currently owned by Lynda Desmarais, who said it had been a ‘difficult decision’ to sell the properties, which are available on a joint or individual basis.
Believed to be one of the oldest hotels in the city with original parts dating back to the late 18th century, the Canterbury Hotel also comprises a swimming pool and onsite manager’s apartment.
Offers in the region of £1.55m are sought for the freehold interest.
The Castle House Hotel was built in the 1730s and features 15 bedrooms, a grand dining room and secluded walled garden, with the freehold interest on the market for offers in the region of £1.75m.
Paul Barrasford, a director in the hotels agency team at Colliers International, commented: “Both hotels, with their combination of great location and product offering, are ideally placed to capitalise on the high levels of leisure and corporate visitors to the area. Each hotel is an established business in its own right and so we expect to receive strong interest in the hotels both on a joint and individual basis”.
Lynda Desmarais, owner, commented: “It has been a difficult decision to sell, particularly Castle House as it was my first hotel. Alongside our hard working teams, we have thoroughly enjoyed establishing the Castle House and Canterbury as two of the finest hotels in Canterbury. I am delighted to have Colliers International on board to help us find a buyer who is as passionate about the properties as I am.“
