Longrose Buccleuch acquires Sheffield hotel

Hotel group Longrose Buccleuch has acquired the 95-bedroom, four-star Sheffield Park Hotel in a £4m deal.
In partnership with private investor syndicator Hotbed and Santander Corporate Banking, the group has acquired the hotel from the Pedersen Group, which had gone into administration.
The hotel will be re-branded as a DoubleTree by Hilton by the end of July and the sixty jobs at risk of redundancy have been saved.
Part of the Buccleuch Group, Longrose Buccleuch is a dedicated hotel business primarily focusing on developing, operating, managing and consulting in branded and unbranded hotel sectors. The Buccleuch Group of companies embraces the corporate business interests of the Buccleuch Family, which is chaired by Duke Richard, the 10th Duke of Buccleuch and Queensberry, KBE.
Group Director Garin Davies, formerly GM of the St Paul’s in Sheffield during its launch period, said: “As a DoubleTree by Hilton, we will be bringing one of Sheffield’s best-known hotels back to life, adding to the city hotel offer.
“We are a very experienced operating group specialising in high quality hotels. The DoubleTree by Hilton will be an exciting new addition offering the best in dining and accommodation as well as conferencing, banqueting, weddings and leisure facilities.”
Built in 1987 as the Sheffield Moat House, the hotel went into administration in June 2010.
