Sale of seafront hotel in Scarborough completes through Christie & Co

Specialist hotel property adviser, Christie & Co has completed on the sale of The Weston Hotel in Scarborough.


Superbly situated on the seafront in the town’s south bay, this grand 32-bedroom hotel has recently undergone a full internal and external refurbishment and enjoys stunning coastal views from its lofty perch above the Scarborough Spa, arguably the towns main tourist attraction.

Previous owners, John Simms and Pat Hendry have run the hotel for around 12 years and are selling to retire. John comments, “We have really enjoyed our time here and have some wonderful memories. The Weston has been our life and we leave with a heavy heart but knowing that the new owners, who are themselves hugely experienced hoteliers, will continue to operate the hotel in much the same way that it is now. We wish them every success and hope that our long list of loyal customers will continue the support they have showed us.”

The sale was handled by Christie & Co Hotel Director, Mark Worley who has completed several hotel deals across North Yorkshire over the last few months. He comments, “Scarborough is a hugely popular tourist destination and one of the busiest seaside towns in the UK. It has a multitude of attractions including its imposing castle, glorious beaches and its proximity to the North York Moors National Park plus the stunning Yorkshire coastline dotted with quaint and historic places such as Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Sandsend. It’s easy to see why this part of the world is so popular with hotel buyers and I look forward to announcing more transactions in the coming months.”
