Glenridding Hotel

The Inn Collection Group has completed its first acquisition of the year with the purchase of the 38-room The Glenridding Hotel in Ullswater.

The group purchased the lakeside venue for an undisclosed sum, taking its Lake District portfolio to nine and its overall site count to 28, as it continues to roll out strategic ‘buy and build’ growth plans.

The Glenridding Hotel is located on the southern shore of Ullswater and boasts views of Helvellyn. It is a popular starting point for walkers and climbers scaling the third highest mountain in England.

The existing site includes a coffee shop, bar, restaurant and conference facilities and will continue trading until a sensitive refurbishment and remodelling takes place later this year.

The group’s Lake District portfolio features sites in sought-after destination sites across the UNESCO World Heritage area including Coniston, Ambleside, Grasmere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Bassenthwaite.

Sean Donkin, Managing Director for The Inn Collection Group, commented: “The Glenridding Hotel is a real bucket list addition to the group. We are delighted to be expanding into further key Lake District areas in the UK’s most visited national park.

“Exceptional locations are very much a group USP and The Glenridding Hotel has this in spades. We look forward to building on the strong reputation this classic site enjoys and enhancing this with a careful refurbishment in line with our ‘Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore’ concept and brand.”

The acquisition of The Glenridding Hotel follows the Alchemy-backed group’s first expansion into Wales in December with the purchase of The Swallow Falls Hotel in the Snowdonia National Park.

December also saw the reopening of its The Temperance Inn in Ambleside following a multi-million pound refurbishment at the Cumbria site.
