The Inn Collection Group has acquired The Dean Court Hotel in York for an undisclosed sum.
The Grade II listed building houses 40 bedrooms and offers views over York Minster.
As part of the deal, the site will begin trading immediately under The Inn Collection Group’s flagship ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore’ trading brand.
The acquisition takes The Inn Collection Group’s total site count to 25 and is its fifth Yorkshire venue.
The group said it is now looking to expand its market base further across the county with “further acquisitions in the pipeline”.
In June the group opened The Seaburn Inn on Sunderland seafront. Elsewhere, The Inn Collection Group’s portfolio includes sites in Northumberland, the Lake District, County Durham and Lancashire.
Julian Troup, head of hotels agency at Colliers, who led the sale, 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.”
