Graham + Sibbald have sold the Royal Hotel, an established 36-bedroom hotel, bar and function venue which is situated only a short walk from Crewe railway station.
Set on Nantwich Road, the Royal Hotel occupies a three-storey end of terrace Victorian property. The building is classed as locally listed and heritage asset for the town.
The sale, for an undisclosed sum, was carried out on behalf of a private pension fund to Crewe Hotels Limited, part of Brilliant Hotels, following a full open marketing campaign.
Director, Martin Davis, in the Manchester office, said:
“We are pleased to have facilitated the sale of the Royal Hotel. This strategic acquisition for the buyers is an excellent opportunity for them to develop the business given the importance of Crewe as a developing hub location including the proposed town centre regeneration and massive investment into the area.”
“We are very confident that under the stewardship of Brilliant Hotels, the Royal Hotel will prosper and go from strength to strength.”
The hotel boasts a completely refurbished function room with its own dedicated bar. The Corner Bar, which was also recently refurbished provides what has historically been a popular locals bar.
Anoob Saban, Managing Director of Brilliant Hotels and Director of Crewe Hotels Limited, added: “We are absolutely delighted to take control of the Royal Hotel in Crewe. It’s a fantastic historic hotel in an amazing location for visitors and businesses alike. We are excited to expand our work in the town and continue to play a crucial role in the development of this hotel. The Royal Hotel will be an excellent addition to our current portfolio. Brilliant Hotels also own and operate hotels in Manchester, Cheltenham, Sheffield and Rochdale with two more hotels set to open in Stoke on Trent in June 2022.
The town of Crewe is riding high on several recent major investment announcements. Bentley have announced a landmark £2.5bn investment in its Crewe facility with plans to turn it into a ‘dream factory’.
Whilst manufacturers Hitachi and Alstom have also committed to seeing the new trains designed for HS2 be finished and tested in the town.
