OYO UK acquires Bath hotel through Christie & Co

Specialist property advisor, Christie & Co have brokered a new 10-year lease on the 4-Star Bailbrook Lodge Hotel, an 18th century dower house hotel in the world heritage city of Bath.

The hotel will undertake a seamless transition into the OYO brand, a move that represents the global hotel companies’ first foray into the buoyant Bath hotel marketplace.

The previous lease holders have built an enviable reputation for quality and service at the hotel, which has 15 guest bedrooms, a plethora of off-road parking and boasts a location just a few moments from the city centre.

Jeremy Sanders, Head of OYO UK comments, “We are delighted to be working with Bailbrook Lodge and officially launching OYO Hotels in the Bath area. We hope this is just the start as we seek to develop new partnerships and grow business for other independent hotel owners in the region.”

Richard Thomas at Christie & Co, who brokered the deal comments, “The Bailbrook Lodge hotel is a fantastic business in a great setting and credit must go to the outgoing business owner for meticulously developing and maintaining such a great product. OYO plan to invest significantly into the business in order to take it to the next level and I look forward to seeing their success both with Bailbrook Lodge and their wider business as it develops on a national and international scale.”
