Royal British Legion puts four hotels on the market for more than £4m

02 September 2020 by

The Royal British Legion has put four of its break centre hotels on the market for a combined guide price of £4.18m.

The charity provides support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, but decided to cease operating its break centre service for serving and ex-personnel earlier this year to focus its funding and resources elsewhere.

The properties are closed and "in excellent condition", having received "significant investment" from the charity and can also be purchased individually.

The hotels include the 36-bedroom Byng House (pictured) in Southport, which has a guide price of £1.65m; Somerset Legion House in Weston-Super-Mare, which has 47 bedrooms and can be purchased for £1.2m; Alderson House, in Bridlington, East Yorkshire, with 26 bedrooms and a price of £800,000; and Bennet House in Portrush, County Antrim, which has 15 bedrooms and is on the market for £525,000.

Robert Smithson, surveyor in hotels agency at Colliers International, which is marketing the property, said: "The high-quality finish of the properties would lend themselves well to a ‘boutique' style of operation and the extensive public areas would also make the properties suitable for exclusive-use weddings or functions.

"There is also an opportunity for a new owner to capitalise on the renaissance of the UK ‘staycation' market; particularly in the wake of Covid-19 where coastal and country hotels are considered to be the markets, which will bounce back the quickest."
