Hotel chain Hanover International has sold the 150-bedroom Sundridge Park hotel, training and conference centre in Bromley, Kent, to property development group Cathedral for £15m.
The grade I-listed, John Nash-designed hotel and estate will be managed by Initial Style Conferences, part of the Rentokil Initial Group.
In a separate development, Rentokil, which also operates catering group Initial Catering Services, this weekend appointed a new chief executive, following the departure of James Wilde in July.
The new boss is Doug Flynn, chief executive of advertising space buyer Aegis.
