Thames side maidenhead hotel ‘The Thames Hotel’ goes on the market through Christie & Co

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is delighted to bring to the market the renowned Thames Hotel in Maidenhead, Berkshire.


This highly successful hotel, which was built in 1886 and is fronting onto the River Thames in Maidenhead, has been independently owned and operated under the stewardship of the Owen family since 1994. The family have been responsible for substantially upgrading the hotel’s facilities and expanding the range of services on offer to guests and have widened the hotel’s customer base.

Featuring 33-bedrooms and extensive function facilities, The Thames Hotel has built a renowned reputation in Maidenhead for both accommodation and food and beverage offering. The hotel also has extensive bar and restaurant facilities on the ground floor, with an external River Thames terrace and potential to expand its offer with the current and approved planning permission.

The current owner, Cliff Owen feels the time is right as custodian of the hotel to step back and hand over to new owners, to further develop and enhance this highly successful business for the future.

Cliff comments, “Whilst it is of course sad to be selling a business with which we have been involved with for almost 30 years, now is the right time to step back. We wish a new buyer every success during their ownership of this great and profitable hotel on the banks of the River Thames. Most importantly we would like to thank the staff, with whom we have shared this memorable journey, for their hard work and dedication over the years”.

Ed Bellfield, Regional Hotel Director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale, adds, “The sale of The Thames Hotel represents an exceptional opportunity to acquire a highly successful hotel business with significant repeat patronage, largely due to its continued ownership and continuity within the same family since 1994. The reputation and success of the business is testament to the continued re-investment and family stewardship over recent decades, combined with its enviable location on the banks of the River Thames. We wish Cliff well on his retirement and the closing of a long-established chapter.”

The hotel is being sold freehold off a guide price of £2,450,000
