Businesses sold


Villa Magdala, a luxury 5-Star bed and breakfast in Bath has been sold by specialist property adviser Christie + Co on behalf of retiring owners, John and Amanda Willmott.

Award winning hoteliers Ian and Christa Taylor are the new owners of the imposing 20 bedroom property. Villa Magdala will compliment their existing business in Bath, the Abbey Hotel on North Parade.

Ian Taylor comments: “We are very excited to have acquired a second site in the city and look forward to developing great synergy between the two properties. With a strong base of business in place for the summer months we will continue to operate without making any immediate changes; however we look forward to developing the business going forward and introducing new ideas and concepts that will enhance the offering.”

 “Something that will be very important to us from day one is to deliver the same great customer service and warm hospitality that has become synonymous with the Abbey Hotel.”

Jonathan Hill, Director at Christie + Co’s Bristol office handled the sale. He comments: “We are delighted to have been able to introduce Ian and Christa Taylor to Villa Magdala and we wish them every success in their new venture.”
