London hoteliers snap up Sussex hotel for more than £1.1m

The three-star High Beech hotel in East Sussex has been bought by Thangarajah and Bawari Maheswaran and family, who also own the MB hotel in North West London.

The property is located in St Leonards on Sea, between the historic towns of Hastings and Battle and close to many National Trust and English Heritage attractions. The hotel's original building dates back to the 18th century.

Facilities include 17 en-suite bedrooms, a 60-seat bar, the 70-seat Wedgwood restaurant, four function suites, six self-catering apartments in an adjacent building, and parking space for more than 64 cars.

The hotel has developed a good mix of trade from accommodation, business seminars, functions, and weddings.

The Maidstone office of Christie + Co sold the hotel for in excess of £1.1m on behalf of the previous owner, Camilla Hughes.
