News: Aston Hall Hotel sold


Aston Hall Hotel in Rotherham has been bought out of administration for an undisclosed sum.

Aston Hall Hotel Ltd, owned by the Lavin family, adds the Rotherham venue to the family's existing portfolio of two hotels in Nottinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

All staff at Aston Hall are being retained, and manager Raquel Silva will continue to run the hotel on a daily basis.

Andrew Lavin, managing director at Aston Hall Hotel Ltd, said: ""We are delighted to have purchased this hotel. It is a grade II* listed building situated in a conservation area with so much character and many unique features.

"It is located next to the beautiful All Saints church in Aston, which makes it a superb wedding venue, as well as a first class hotel for both business and leisure."

BDO were appointed as joint administrators of the previous operators, Tomahawk, in August 2010 and BDL Management were appointed to continue the operation.

The leasehold of the grade II* listed building plus four acres of land was put up for sale in 2011 with a guide price of £3.2m.

The hall dates back to 1773 and is based within 55 acres of grounds close to Aston's conservation area. The 55 room hotel includes six suites and three penthouses and was extended in 2008. It has been developed to a high standard and is a popular wedding venue.

Sheffield law firm Taylor & Emmet acted on behalf of the new owners. Julian Rowden, partner at Taylor & Emmet, said: "Aston Hall is an excellent prospect for an hotelier with flair and I am very pleased to have been so closely involved in acquiring it for our clients.

"The venue is highly regarded locally and benefits from beautiful architecture, good facilities and a convenient village location, close to the M1 motorway. I have no doubt that it will be an important addition to the Lavin family's property portfolio."
