UK: Travel Sector Property Limited (TSPL) has acquired Hotel Polurrian Limited, owner of the freehold interest in Polurrian on the Lizard at Mullion in Cornwall.
Polurrian on The Lizard first opened in 1912, sitting on 12 acres of ground and including part of the Pulurrian Cove beach.
It features 41 bedrooms and underwent a refurbishment in 2019. Amenities comprise a lounge, bar, restaurant, games room, spa, gym and pool, along with six self-catering villas.
All employees at the Polurrian, including the general manager Grant Callaghan, will be retained. TSPL have also entered into a management agreement with Luxury Hotel Management Limited.
Andrew Long, principal director of TSPL, said: “We are delighted to have acquired the Polurrian, which has many happy memories for my family and I since first discovering this wonderful location some 32 years ago. We are proud to own this iconic hotel and to further endorse our Cornwall connections, with regular visits for business and pleasure each year.”
Long has plans for further investment in the Polurrian to enhance the hotel’s existing facilities. Alongside his new role as owner, Long will continue to serve as CEO of Extra Motorway Services Areas Group, a company he co-founded and which is headquartered in Beaconsfield.
Nigel Chapman, principal of Luxury Hotel Management, said: “We are delighted to be working jointly with Andrew and his team. It’s great to see the next chapter for the Polurrian successfully unfolding and to know that there will be a significant further investment into this much-loved hotel.”
