MG Hotels buys Oxfordshire hotel for £5m-plus

MG Hotels has bought the Red Lion hotel in the Oxfordshire market town of Henley-on-Thames off an asking price of £5.5m.

It combines a mix of 15th, 16th and 17th century architectural styles and is furnished throughout with a collection of antiques.

The English country-style Red Lion has 26 individually-styled bedrooms, many with river views, a 27-seat restaurant, a 20-seat character bar, a private dining room that will accommodate 100 guests sitting and 250 standing up, and a conference/banqueting suite for 60 theatre-style.

MG Hotels - which also owns the four-star boutique Manor hotel in Windsor, Berkshire - has already added a new, 30-seat trade patio and added new bedrooms, which it plans to expand to 43 in total. It is also increasing seating across its facilities.

The London office of Christie + Co sold the freehold on behalf of the Miller family.
