Vine Hotels has acquired its fifth hotel in Sheffield—the company’s fifth in the city.
Kenwood Hall in Nether Edge in Northern England, formerly the Sheffield Marriott, was purchased from the Principal Hayley group for a reported seven-figure price. A full renovation of the bedrooms and public areas is expected, and refurbishments to the building and its grounds are already under way. The spa, which has been closed, is expected to reopen.
Greg Dyke—also chairman of the Football Association and the British Film Institute—has long held hotel interests and became chairman of Vine hotels last year. The company’s other Sheffield hotels include the DoubleTree Hilton in Meadowhead, Mosborough Hall in Mosborough, Cutlers Hotel in Sheffield city centre and Whirlowbrook Hall on Ecclesall Road South. The company also runs the Mecure Dolphin Hotel in Southampton.
We are delighted to announce we have added @kenwood_hall to our portfolio. There are some very exciting plans for this property— Vine Hotels (@vine_hotels) August 4, 2016
