Ednam House in Kelso, on the Scottish borders, has been purchased by Guyzance Hall, for an undisclosed sum.
The former 18th Century mansion has been purchased from the Brooks family who have owned and operated the hotel since 1928.
This new acquisition adds to Guyzance Hall’s existing portfolio of properties which includes Doxford Hall Hotel, Eshott Hall and Guyzance Hall in Northumberland, as well as Dalhousie Castle near Edinburgh, and the Tedsmore Estate in Shropshire.
Ednam House was built by James Dickson, who had returned to his home town after making his fortune in London in the spice trade. The Brooks family have operated the hotel, which has 32 bedrooms, for the last 85 years.
The hotel specialises in fishing and wedding parties and events.
Guyzance Operations Director Eric Kortenbach said: “I am delighted to welcome Ednam House to our portfolio as it fits perfectly with our brand. We intend to invest in both the hotel, and staff. Our aim is to ensure that Ednam House becomes a luxury destination hotel.”
The properties in North Northumberland and Dalhousie have seen millions of pounds worth of investment over the last five years.
