Three Counties Hotel changes hands
Hereford’s Three Counties Hotel has changed hands for the first time in over 20 years in a deal brokered by specialist property advisors Christie & Co.
The 60-bedroom purpose-built hotel has been sold on behalf of Daniel Price & family who have owned and operated the hotel since 1995.
The purpose-built hotel originally was constructed in 1979 as a 32 bedroom motel and was later sold to Queens Moat House Hotels in 1981 who extended the public areas and added 28 letting rooms. The present owners purchased the hotel in 1995 and during their ownership extended the restaurant, Hereford function suite and added extra general storage areas and loading bay.
The hotel currently comprises 60 ensuite letting bedrooms, 5 conference/banqueting suites, a large restaurant, reception lounge and bar. The property occupies a large level site of around 3.5 acres with extensive parking facilities fronting the A465 in Hereford.
The hotel has been purchased by Harry Harrison and family from Oxfordshire who will be taking over and investing in this well-established and renowned hotel business. The manager Michelle Standell and her staff will continue to operate the business alongside the Harrison family.
Jonathan Hill, who handled the sale on behalf of Christie & Co commented: “We are delighted to announce the sale of what is a landmark hotel in Herefordshire.
“The market is very buoyant in the county, and we are seeing a lot of interest in businesses such as these across the region.
“We wish the new owners the Harrison family every success in their new venture.”
