Britannia Hotels acquires Palace hotel in Buxton

Britannia Hotels has acquired the Palace hotel in Buxton, after it was put up for sale last year by the Hotel Collection for £7m.

It is not known how much Britannia paid for the Grade II-listed, four-star hotel.

Britannia has listed the property, which has 122 rooms and 97 staff, under its "latest acquisitions" on its website.

Meanwhile, the Hotel Collection's website states: "The Palace hotel in Buxton is no longer part of the Hotel Collection and is now owned by Britannia Hotels Ltd."

Britannia Hotels manages nearly 50 hotels across the UK, including the Grand in Scarborough, and the Adelphi in Liverpool.

It recently put the controversial, Grade II-listed London Road Fire Station up for sale - the centre of a long-running dispute between Britannia and Manchester City Council due to the failure of the hotel group to develop the site. Britannia Hotels, which acquired the Edwardian baroque style building in 1986, is looking to achieve substantial offers in excess of £10m.
