Splendid Hospitality Group acquires New Ellington hotel in Leeds

The Splendid Hospitality Group has acquired the New Ellington hotel in Leeds off a guide price of £2.5m.

Situated in the centre of the city, the 34-bedroom hotel was put up for sale in September by RBS five years after being relaunched following an 18-month refurbishment.

The acquisition takes Splendid Hospitality Group's portfolio to 18, which includes the Conrad London St James and the newly opened Hilton London Bankside and the Grand Hotel and Spa York.

The New Ellington hotel is named after Duke Ellington, who played at the Leeds music festival in 1958. The art deco inspired hotel includes two conference rooms and a Gin Garden bar.

Splendid Hospitality Group chief executive Stuart Bailey said: "We are delighted to acquire the New Ellington hotel which enhances our existing collection, giving us a stronger accommodation proposition in the region. This boutique hotel is ideally located for both the business and leisure traveller and we look forward to welcoming guests to the hotel."

Previously managed by Bespoke Hotels, the New Ellington will now be operated directly by Splendid Hospitality.
