News: New owners for Consort Hotel

By

The Best Western Consort Hotel in Thurcroft, Rotherham has recently been acquired for an undisclosed sum by James Edward Hotels Ltd, operated by its subsidiary Company Montgomery Hotels Ltd.

The 27-room hotel was put up for sale in January 2012 with an asking price of £1.3m. It was purchased later in the year by the hotels division of investment company, West Register Property, from the Peat family who had owned the hotel since 1997.

The new owners said that they are pleased to have acquired the hotel to join its existing hotel property portfolio and are committed to remaining within the Best Western partnership, together with a plan for continued investment in the hotel.

Sharon Leahy, general manager at the hotel, said; "The existing management and staff are looking forward to an exciting future at the hotel as the team aims to maintain and continue to improve our high standards and the guest experience.

"All exisisting bookings, deposit payments and contracts in place will not be affected by the recent change of ownership."

Best Western GB is part of the American group, Best Western International. It started in the UK in 1967 with Interchange Hotels, who joined with Consort Hotels in 1999, to start the British arm of the Best Western brand.

There are over 270 Best Western hotels in the UK - all of which are independently owned and run.

Previous owners, West Register Property, was the controversial acquisition and investment arm of the state-owned Royal Bank of Scotland. In 2014, the bank took the decision to wind down and sell any assets in West Register due to the "damaging perception that the bank had a conflict of interest when it purchased a property as part of a restructuring process."
