Purpose built hotel with extensive facilities looking for new owner

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co has brought to the market the Sharnbrook Hotel in Sharnbrook, Bedfordshire.

Set within a substantial 1.72-hectare site, with prominent road frontage, substantial car parking and private gardens, the purpose-built hotel was constructed in 2006 with further extensions added in 2016.  The two-storey property features 42 well-appointed en suite guest bedrooms, a large reception area, lounge bar, five function and conference rooms, high specification commercial kitchen, and a well-established restaurant offering a high quality menu with locally grown and sourced produce.

Utilising the extensive outside space, the property provides the opportunity for al fresco dining, ideal to cater for the busy summertime trade and to provide an outdoor space for special occasions including weddings, anniversaries, and birthday celebrations. Additionally, the site can accommodate guest parking for approximately 200 vehicles.

Located to the north of the county town of Bedford, the venue provides guests with a scenic and secluded experience whilst remaining highly accessible, fronting on to the main A6 (Luton to Leicester) trunk road. This makes it an ideal base for tourists drawn to the area. Sharnbrook Hotel has many amenities and attractions nearby with the bustling town of Bedford just nine miles to the south and the regional town of Milton Keynes 23 miles to the southwest.

Having been owned and operated by the current owners, the Ciampi Family for the past 16 years, the Sharnbrook Hotel has built up an enviable reputation, enjoying repeat business from both corporate and leisure guests, as well as having a strong local following.

Ciro Ciampi comments, “We have enjoyed running the hotel since 2006, however, we feel the time is right for a new operator to take the helm.  With scope to develop the function business to fully utilise the 300-capacity banqueting suite, we feel there is an exciting opportunity for a new owner to grow the hotel and take it to the next level.”

Ed Bellfield, Regional Director at Christie & Co’s Winchester office is handling the sale and comments, “The Sharnbrook Hotel presents a unique opportunity to acquire a successful freehold hotel in what is a highly sought-after location in the heart of the Bedfordshire countryside. Lying only nine miles to the north of Bedford on the A6 and just 23 miles from Junction 14 of the M1 motorway, it is very easily accessible, and we expect strong interest.”

Christie & Co is seeking an asking price of £3,950,000 plus VAT for the freehold interest.
