Robson leaves Great Northern Hotel

UK: Jeremy Robson, the owner of London’s Great Northern Hotel, has departed the business.

Companies House documents show that Robson, who opened the 91-bedroom hotel next to King’s Cross station in 2013, terminated his position as a director in June, with his involvement in the business brought to an end in the same month.

Tyler Harvey Mingst and Simon Nicholas Finn were appointed as a “person with significant control” following the departure of Robson. Mingst and Finn are directors at investment firm, Intriva Capital Advisors LLP.

As a result of the change in ownership, Great Northern Hotel is now listed as being part of management company, Kew Green Hotels.

Chef Mark Sargeant, who headed up the hotel’s Plum + Spilt Milk restaurant, has also left the business.

Robson acquired the building in 2008 and invested £42 million in the site before opening. In 2015, the hotel became the first UK property to join Starwood’s Tribute portfolio.
