The hotel was owned and operated by the same family for many years, but its current owners are now looking to retire.
The hotel has been purchased by two brothers who are looking to drive the business forward and “quickly get back to past, pre-Covid performance”.
The main building, which dates back to the 1860s, features 52 en-suite guest bedrooms and Luigi’s Restaurant, an “elegant” dining venue with a focus on Italian cuisine.
The hotel is “renowned” as Stockport’s premier events venue due to its “stylish and sizeable” functions offering, which includes five conference and events rooms in a modern extension adjacent to the main building.
The largest space can accommodate up to 250 guests, making it a popular choice for weddings and large private events.
The site is also located near local attractions including the Manchester City and Manchester United grounds, meaning it “enjoys a steady level” of occupancy from business and leisure travellers year-round.
Ryan Lynn, director at Christie and Co’s corporate hotels team handled the sale and said: “I’m very happy to have been involved in the sale of Alma Lodge.
“We have been working on the deal for a while now and despite such an uncertain time, the sale has gone through after a lot of hard work from all involved, suggesting the resilience of the sector. We wish the previous owner, Karl and his family all the best for a well-earned break and the best of luck to the new owners moving forward with the business.”
