York hotel acquired by Inn Collection Group

Dean Court Hotel

UK: The Inn Collection Group has secured The Dean Court Hotel in York as it continues to expand across the north of England.

The Dean Court Hotel is a Grade II-listed building comprising 40 bedrooms. A refurbishment of the property is planned in 2022.

As the fifth Yorkshire venue for the group, the undisclosed deal takes The Inn Collection Group’s total site count to 25.

Managing director of the group, Sean Donkin, said: “The Dean Court Hotel is an extraordinary site. We are absolutely delighted to be adding this spectacular venue and its team into our collection. It matches our pubs with rooms blueprint in every way, offering our expanding customer base an unrivalled location with a phenomenal USP in its proximity to York Minster. We have had York in our sights for a considerable time and are looking forward to operating here and welcoming the Dean Court staff team and customers into The Inn Collection Group family.” 

The deal was negotiated by Colliers. Julian Troup, head of hotels agency at Colliers, said: “The Dean Court Hotel was marketed in a highly discreet manner at the request of the vendor, and despite the challenges that this can create a sale has been successfully concluded. This is a unique and renowned hotel which benefits from attracting both international and national guests all year round because of its superb location in the heart of the historic city of York. Despite the targeted approach to marketing we were still able to generate significant interest in this outstanding opportunity.”

Ward Hadaway corporate partner Imogen Holland provided legal advice on the Dean Court acquisition, with Method Building Consultancy on pre diligence.
