Rotherham's Hellaby Hall hotel sold off guide price of £5.6m

The four-AA-star, 89-bedroom Hellaby Hall hotel in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, has been sold off a guide price of £5.6m.

Andrew Lavin, the sole director of Hellaby Hall Hotel Ltd, is also a director of the Best Western Plus Aston Hall hotel, Sheffield, and the Best Western West Retford hotel, Retford.

Dating back to the 17th century, the Grade II-listed Hellaby Hall boasts an AA rosette restaurant, health and leisure club with swimming pool and event space for up to 500 guests.

Property agent Savills has handled the sale of Hellaby Hall, alongside the sale in December of two former sister properties in Cheshire: Nunsmere Hall, Northwich, for £5.35m and the Stanneylands hotel, Wilmslow, for £4.15m. The sale of the Quorn Country hotel in Leicestershire, which is also being marketed by Savills, is believed to be close to completion.

Meanwhile, the fifth hotel in the former Prima portfolio - the Crowne Plaza Edinburgh Royal Terrace - has just been confirmed by JLL, for an undisclosed sum.

Tom Cunningham, hotels director at Savills, described Hellaby Hall as "a picturesque hotel" providing multiple income streams which resulted in widespread interest from potential buyers.

AlixPartners was appointed as administrator of all five Prima hotels following a failure by the operating company to meet its debt commitments. Legacy Hotels and Resorts was brought in by AlixPartners to operate the properties during the sale process.
