The hotel is located in a prominent location in the center of Wakefield city, an area which attracts a “significant” amount of leisure and business travellers, given its close proximity to Leeds and surrounding smaller towns.
The modern purpose-built property currently trades as a budget service hotel and comprises 81-bedrooms across seven floors, a ground level lounge, and restaurant and bar open to both hotel and public guests.
Christie and Co are selling the property on behalf of the Cairns Hotels Group, which own a number of quality hotels across the country. The group has made the decision to sell the property as part of a business restructure.
The owners have also carried out numerous improvements to the hotel, including a refurbishment to the bedrooms and common areas.
Ryan Lynn, director of Corporate Hotels at Christie and Co, who is handling the sale, said: “We’re very pleased to be working with the Handa family once again and anticipate that the opportunity will be well received by the market.
“The hotel is currently trading strongly under the Holiday Inn Express branding and is in a great location in the centre of Wakefield. The UK hotel market is currently very active with both UK and overseas buyers seeking high quality opportunities and we believe that the hotel fulfils many of their criteria.”
