New owner for Yorkshire Golf Hotel

11.35am 26th September 2008 - Property

A popular hotel and golf complex with breathtaking sea views from the North Yorkshire coast has been sold to a local landowner.

Hunley Hall Hotel and Golf Club, on the outskirts of Brotton, near Saltburn-by-Sea, went into administration earlier this year. It was marketed at a guide price of £2.25m by Savills on the instructions of the joint administrator, Joseph McLean of Grant Thornton LLP.

The complex, set in scenic countryside overlooking Hummersea Bay, is acknowledged as one of the finest on this stretch of coastline. The AA*** hotel, which opened in 2006, has 28 double/twin en suite bedrooms, two bars, lounges and a popular restaurant which can accommodate up to 120 diners.

Linked to the hotel is the golf clubhouse, with a pro-shop and locker rooms. Hunley’s original 18-hole par 73 course was designed by John Morgan and opened in 1993. Since then, the course has been expanded to provide 29 golf holes which can be configured to provide four different 18-hole layouts. The golf club also has a practice area, putting green and 12-bay floodlit driving range.

Kay Smith, of Savills in Oxford, says, “Hunley is in a stunning position and, with an annual projected turnover of £1.1m, is potentially a very good business proposition. We understand the new owner is planning to develop the complex further.”

Savills’ Leisure team in Oxford and Hotels team in Manchester were both involved with the sale.
