Branston Hall Hotel is a renowned hotel and wedding venue, which provides a significant number of letting bedrooms, along with extensive F&B, conferencing and leisure facilities. Historically the business has had a Tripadvisor rating of 4. There is significant potential for new owners to invest in the property and reopen the business. The diverse revenue streams which the business can benefit from further add to the strength of the opportunity. The extensive grounds offer potential for development (STP). Log cabins, glamping pods and camping are some of the potential uses for part of the approximate 72.5-acre site and will allow new owners to fully unlock the potential of the opportunity. Prior to the tenure of the management company, the hotel traded successfully under the guidance of our client for well over 30 years. Given the facilities, size of the property and development potential, there is a significant opportunity to relaunch the business.
The business was most recently operated by a management company until it ceased trading in November 2020. Prior to that, the business was operated by our client. The most recent accounts that are available are dated 31st December 2018 and show net sales of £1,602,299.
The rateable value of the property is £110,000. Confirmation of business rates payable should be obtained from the Local Authority.
