Aston Villa's manager Alex McLeish has sold the 10-bedroom Brunswick hotel in Edinburgh, from an asking price of offers in excess of £795,000.
The property, which is situated in a 19th century William Playfair terraced townhouse, has been sold to John Gilmore and Jennifer Thorpe, who plan to return it to a private home.
McLeish owned the hotel with Edinburgh businessman Ewan Gilles. "In recent times I have had to run the hotel under management due to other business commitments and Alex has always been a silent partner," said Gilles in explaining the decision to sell.
The sale of the property was handled by Knight Frank.
