Starwood Hotels & Resorts has put its 219-room Turnberry golf and hotel resort in Scotland up for sale for £100m.
Starwood runs the Ayrshire-based resort, which it acquired ten years ago for about £32m, under its luxury Westin brand.
A company spokeswoman told The Times: "In line with Starwood's asset strategy, the Westin Turnberry Resort, Ayrshire, has taken the decision to source an investment partner to realise the development potential of the resort, where there is 300 acres of undeveloped land."
The company has appointed Jones Lang LaSalle Hotels to handle the process, with any deal thought to be dependent on Starwood being retained to manage the resort. It is understood to be willing to retain a minority stake.
In other news, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal has sold, through Kingdom Hotels, the Four Seasons hotel in London's Mayfair for £70.5m to an unnamed buyer.
