The Olde Barn Hotel sold to Shepherd Cox Hotels

UK: New Barn Hotel Limited, owner of The Olde Barn Hotel, entered administration in August last year, and the property has now been sold to Shepherd Cox Hotels Limited.

Administrators from RSM Restructuring Advisory have completed the sale of the 103-room Olde Barn Hotel in Marston, near Grantham.

The hotel went into administration 27 August 2019 following acute cashflow pressures. The Olde Barn Hotel continued to trade under joint administrators whilst seeking a buyer for the hotel and business, which includes a leisure club, restaurant, and function room facilities.

Adrian Allen, a partner at RSM Restructuring Advisory LLP, said: “I’m delighted that we were able to complete this deal which minimises creditor losses, secures the ongoing employment of the hotel staff and honours all room and function booking for existing customers.”

The sale was facilitated by commercial real estate firm Avison Young. James Williamson, director of hotels at Avison Young, added: “We are pleased to have completed the sale of the hotel, following strong interest in the asset, despite the wider market uncertainty during this period.”
