Legacy Hotels and Resorts operates four properties from Surya Hotels

Legacy Hotels and Resorts has taken over the operation of four properties owned by East Anglia-based Surya Hotels.

The four hotels all have a four-AA-star rating and include the 79-bedroom Duke's Head hotel in King's Lynn, Norfolk; 62-bedroom Mill Hotel, Sudbury, Suffolk; 43-bedroom Great Hallingbury Hotel (pictured), Bishop's Stortford, Essex; and 30-bedroom Kingscliff Hotel, Holland-on-Sea, Essex. They are all now branded under the Legacy banner.

Andy Townsend, chief executive of Legacy Hotels and Resorts, said the company intends to further develop the hotels which have benefited from significant investment in recent years.

"Entering into business with Surya Hotels is an extremely exciting and significant development for us in our ninth year of trading - to have an investment partner with the desire and financial ability to acquire hotels assets and follow through with the funds to significantly refurbish and reposition the properties is a distinct strength to our growth plans."

Surya Hotels' former commercial director Brian van Oosten has joined Legacy as regional operations director.

Legacy Hotels & Resorts currently operates 19 hotels with a combined value of £138m. Surya Hotels, based in Harwich, is part of the Surya Food Group.
