News: Hellaby Hall operators in administration


Prima Hotels, the operator of Hellaby Hall Hotel in Rotherham, has called in the administrators.

The 4 star hotel at Bramley includes 89 rooms in the converted 17th century house of Ralph Fretwell, who made his fortune planting sugar in Barbados. The Grade II * listed building is a popular location for weddings, functions and business. It also includes a gym and spa and a fine dining restaurant that recently won a AA rosette for culinary excellence for the first time in the hotel's history.

Prima Hotels is one of a number of connected companies and hotels to call in Ryan Grant, Lee Causer and Catherine Williamson, of AlixPartners Services UK LLP on May 7. The administrators have taken on the management of the affairs, business and property of the companies and have already appointed Legacy Hotels & Resorts Ltd to manage the day to day affairs of the hotels as their disclosed agent.

The joint administrators said that they will continue to trade the hotels while exploring all options and that they intend to honour all bookings.

Ryan Grant, joint administrator from AlixPartners, said: "We will continue to trade the hotels on a "business as usual" basis and intend to honour all bookings made prior to our appointment.

"We believe the businesses are attractive to a range of potential buyers and welcome expressions of interest from third parties to acquire any or all of the sites.

"We would also like to thank the staff for their continued support and professionalism during this process."

The property had been fire-damaged before being purchased by Whiteley Geddes Developments and a £4.5m renovation project was completed in 1992.

The property was sold by Paramount Hotels in 2001 for a reported £4m to businessmen Gerard and Carl Hanratty, of Ireland, who subsequently went into partnership with Liam Walshe's Prima Hotels.

3.5 acres (1.42 hectares) of the hotel site has been up for sale as a prominent development site fronting Bawtry Road.
