Corbin, King deny Basil Street deal

Restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King have denied reports they are planning to buy London's Basil Street hotel.

It is well known that the pair want to own a London hotel, but a spokeswoman for Corbin said there was nothing in the Basil Street hotel rumours and that she was unaware of any progress being made in the pair's plans to acquire a hotel.

The Basil Street hotel, behind Harrods in Knightsbridge, was put up for sale in January through agents FPD Savills with an asking price of more than £4.5m. With just 12 years left on its lease, sources said the pair were unlikely to touch the property.
