Vine Hotels has announced it has added the The 149-bedroom Bredbury Hall Hotel in Stockport, south Manchester, to its portfolio.
The company plans to re-open Bredbury Hall Hotel in June 2021 with the creation of 100 jobs. Vine Hotels was supported with investment from Connection Capital, the private client investment business.
The property features a 200-cover restaurant, a 60-cover lounge-bar and brasserie, 10 meeting rooms for up to 200 for a cocktail reception and 180 delegates theatre-style, a fitness centre and a unique 16th Century barn space holding up to 900 people.
Vine Hotels said it plans to “invest significantly” in upgrading the property over the next two years and will immediately create 30 new jobs at the venue, including the appointment of an experienced management team spearheaded by general manager Scott McDonald.
He brings over 20 years of hotelier’s experience and strong local knowledge, having worked at venues such as Carnoustie Golf, Hotel and Spa and as general manager at Vine Hotel’s property, the Best Western Cresta Court hotel in Altrincham, south Manchester.
It added the re-opening of Bredbury Hall Hotel will come as “welcome news” to many locally, as the hotel fell victim of tough Covid-19 trading conditions, closing in March 2020 and subsequently placed in administration in October 2020 with the loss of 90 jobs.
Vine Hotels chairman, Greg Dyke, said: “Bredbury Hall is an exciting property. Combining a superb location with heritage and a long-established connection with its local community. It has immense potential for the future, and we look forward to helping Bredbury Hall take its rightful place as one of Stockport’s best hotels.“
Doug Wilson, investment director at Connection Capital, said: “We are delighted to be working with Vine Hotels to re-open Bredbury Hall and to create jobs in the north west. Bredbury is a historic venue and we’re excited about the potential once full restrictions are lifted and things get back to normal.”
Bredbury Hall Hotel joins the growing Vine Hotels portfolio of owned and managed venues, such as recent additions the Charlecote Pheasant, Stratford and The Dartmouth Hotel and Spa, Dartmouth.
