UK: Fleurets and Christie & Co have brought to market The Edgbaston Hotel, a boutique hotel, restaurant and cocktail lounge which is currently closed.
The 20-bedroom hotel first opened in 2014. It is spread across two Georgian terraces in the Gastro Quarter of Edgbaston Village. A further adjacent building was recently refurbished as a restaurant.
Six of the bedrooms and suites reside in the main house, along with the bar and restaurant, and an additional 14 rooms can found in the adjacent building.
Monique Royle, divisional director of Fleurets said: “Prior to Covid-19, the business established itself as one of the flagship operations of the independent Birmingham scene. We see this as a fabulous opportunity for someone to carry on this legacy and create their own exciting future.”
Charles Jones, associate director of hospitality at Christie & Co, said: “The venue was forced to close during the Covid-19 pandemic, which came as a huge disappointment to the local community, so this is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to reopen the much-loved venue and build on the success of the previous owners.”
Tom Foley, asset manager at Calthorpe Estates, the freeholders of The Edgbaston, added: “This is a really exciting opportunity for someone to build on a previously successful brand and offer a further valuable amenity in Edgbaston. We have been pleased with the unsolicited interest received to date and confident various offers will be forthcoming following the formal marketing campaign. Calthorpe are seeking an operator that displays a successful track record and a passion to take on these attractive buildings to create a new leisure and hotel destination.”
The business is available by way of a new 25-year full repairing and insuring lease, terms to be agreed.
