06 September 2016

The Hotel Collection, represented jointly by Savills and Rothschild, is marketing the Grade II listed Imperial Hotel in Blackpool for a guide price of £10.5 million. 

The property dates back to the 19th Century and has played an important role in Blackpool’s history, serving as a hospital for shell-shocked officers in World War I and as the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in World War II.  Now a 4-star hotel, it features 180 bedrooms plus a restaurant, bar, health club and 14 conference rooms catering for up to 600 delegates. 

The Imperial Hotel has hosted numerous famous guests since it opened in the1860s, including Charles Dickens, Winston Churchill, Fred Astaire, The Beatles, Princess Margaret and Princess Anne.  Located on the North promenade, one mile north west of Blackpool town centre, the property offers spectacular sea views and close proximity to Blackpool Zoo, Blackpool Tower and Blackpool Pleasure Beach.

Martin Rogers, head of UK hotel transactions at Savills, comments: “The Imperial Hotel is a true reminder of Blackpool’s Victorian heyday, combining 19th century opulence and glamour with contemporary style and modern facilities.  The successful restaurant, health club and conference facilities means it offers prospective new owners several income streams.”

The Imperial Hotel is one of a 10 regional UK hotels - known collectively as Project Solstice - which are currently being sold by The Hotel Collection.
