Gogglebox stars’ Salutation Hotel to be sold for £5m

UK: The Grade I-listed boutique hotel, owned by Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker, is to be sold privately.

Located in Sandwich in Kent, the property is spread over 3.7 acres and comprises 17 bedrooms and a 60-cover restaurant.

Its Salutation Gardens won Gold at last year’s Chelsea Flower Show, and is recognised as some of the best in the country, earning RHS Partner Garden status.

The Parker’s bought the hotel for £2.6 million in 2004, and spent a further £2.5 million renovating the building.

Dom Parker said: “We’re looking for £5 million for the purchase price. We ideally want to sell the building. It has been our lives, our home, our joy – our stage for Gogglebox. It is a very important part of the past 14 years of our lives, and it is such a beautiful building. But we are just too old and exhausted, and don’t have the energy to run it anymore.”

August Kent Ltd insolvency practitioners have been instructed to place the business into a creditors’ voluntary liquidation.

Augusta Kent Ltd said: “We want to ensure that all creditors of the company are contacted by us so that we can advise them of the process and next steps.”
