Signet Hotel Group acquires Mitre Hotel at Hampton Court

Signet Hotel group has acquired the freehold interest of the Mite Hotel, Hampton Court, with the hotel previously under family ownership for nearly 30 years.

The Signet Hotel Group is a newly formed partnership spearheaded by Hector Ross, whose recent CV includes The Bel and The Dragon group of country inns and the Beaverbrook Hotel and Spa.

The Mitre is a landmark hotel occupying a riverside location next to Hampton Court Bridge and Hampton Court Palace.

With origins from 1666, the property was initially used as ancillary accommodation for the palace and rebuilt in the mid-18th Century. Fast forward to 2020 and the Mitre currently offers 36 en-suite bedrooms with an “extensive” bar, restaurant and events facilities, all overlooking the River Thames.

The Mitre Hotel was jointly marketed by leisure property specialists Fleurets and Christie and Co.

Paul Hardwick, head of hotels at Fleurets, said: “With my colleague James Davies and joint agent Alex Campbell at Christie and Co, we were able to utilise our combined experience in the market to source and approach an exclusive purchaser list.

“We are proud to be involved with the sale of such an iconic property and look forward to seeing it evolve after the investment Signet Hotel Group has planned for later this year.”
