The Vine Hotels portfolio now stretches the length of the country with the addition of the group’s latest managed hotel in Eastbourne.
After successfully completing a multi-stage, competitive tender process, Vine Hotels is delighted to take over the management of the Best Western York House Hotel, Eastbourne with immediate effect.
The property takes the number of hotels owned and managed by Vine Hotels to thirteen, after a string of acquisitions for the brand, including Bredbury Hall Hotel in Cheshire, The Old Rectory, Handsworth and The Charlecote Pheasant Hotel, Warwick. The company’s burgeoning portfolio stretches from the Northeast to the South Coast as it continues with an ambitious programme of growth.
Speaking of the new property, Vine Hotels CEO Garin Davies said: “We are delighted to take over the management of York House Hotel as we further expand our business into new regions.
“York House Hotel is a tourism-led property, based in a resort town on England’s beautiful south coast. We look forward to supporting the existing hotel management team in developing a robust sales and marketing strategy, using our extensive expertise, to capitalise on opportunities in this sector and to move the Hotel forwards.
“We particularly welcome the existing Hotel team members to the company and look forward to bringing them fresh chances for learning and development. Having recently launched several training initiatives, aimed at bringing promising individuals into management roles, there could not be a better time to join our organisation.”
York House Hotel is a splendid 76-bedroom Victorian beachfront property ideally located just metres from Eastbourne’s stunning four-mile promenade. With a selection of comfortable rooms and delicious food served in the on-site restaurant it’s the ideal base from which to explore the best of this popular seaside resort.
The property has been owned by the Sangiuseppe Family for over 16 years and will continue under their ownership with Vine Hotels providing an overarching management team and strategy.
Daniel Sangiuseppe said: “The tender process we went through was extremely robust and we were hugely impressed with Vine Hotels’ demonstrable expertise in every area, as well as the fact that they would like to keep our existing team in place as they take the hotel forward, something that was particularly important to us. We are confident that Vine Hotels has the right management team in place to drive sales and attract the right guests to continue down the road of making our property a huge success.”
