York House Hotel, formerly Best Western, has been taken over by Vine Hotels. A spokesperson for Vine Hotels said it was a “multi-stage competitive bidding process” and that management would change with “immediate effect”. The property has been in the Sangiuseppe family for over 16 years and will remain under their ownership. Vine Hotels will provide an overall leadership team and strategy.
Daniel Sangiuseppe said: “The tender process we went through was extremely robust and we were extremely impressed with Vine Hotels’ demonstrable expertise in all areas, as well as the fact that they would like to keep our existing team in place while they take over the hotel before, something that was particularly important to us. We are confident that Vine Hotels has the right management team to drive sales and attract the right guests to continue to make our property a huge success.
Vine Hotels CEO Garin Davies said: “We are delighted to take over the management of York House Hotel. We look forward to supporting the hotel management team in developing a strong sales and marketing strategy, and using our extensive expertise to capitalize on opportunities and move the hotel forward. We especially welcome members of the existing hospitality team into the business and look forward to providing them with new learning and development opportunities. Having recently launched several training initiatives aimed at bringing promising individuals into leadership positions, there couldn’t be a better time to join our organization. »
This decision brings to 13 the number of hotels owned and managed by Vine Hotels.
