The Burton Hotel on sale for first time in 35 years

The hotel is situated on the English/Welsh border in an historic market town which is in close proximity to local walks such as Offa's Dyke, Mortimers Trail, and The Wyche Way

The Burton Hotel in Kington has been brought to the market for the first time in over 35 years for an undisclosed sum.

The hotel is situated on the English/Welsh border in an historic market town which is in close proximity to local walks such as Offa’s Dyke, Mortimers Trail, and The Wyche Way.

It is also “well positioned” within the town, set in a two-storey former coaching inn built in the 19 Century, with a Georgian frontage.

The main house comprises 16 en-suite bedrooms which have been refurbished in the past two years, along with a reception, traditional horseshoe bar, formal restaurant area and several conference and function room facilities.

Due to the pandemic, the hotel was forced to close in 2020. However, since reopening on 17 May, occupancy levels have been above 80%.

Joshua Sullivan, senior agent, Christie and Co, said: “The Burton Hotel is an excellent business which has enjoyed consistent growth in topline and net profit over the past five years.

“The sale, therefore, presents a fantastic opportunity for an experienced operator to acquire both a robust Covid-proof business with multiple revenue streams, and an asset that requires very little capital expenditure.”
