The buyer is Danske Hoteller ApS, now owning 22 hotels in Denmark and almost 1,500 rooms in total. Danske Hoteller takes over Hotel Ansgar with effect from 15 June 2019.
Colliers in Vejle, on behalf of Hedeby Hotel Group by Lars Hedeby Sørensen, has mediated in the transaction of the historic hotel which dates back to 1898. Hotel Ansgar has 52 rooms, of which most were recently renovated.
”Hotel Ansgar has a prime location in Skolegade in the heart of the town of Esbjerg. It is a well-driven hotel, which will fit well into the portfolio of Danske Hoteller,” says Ronni Bagge, commercial real estate advisor at Colliers in Vejle and adds:
”Hotel Ansgar will definitely strengthen Danske Hoteller’s position in the south-western part of Jutland, which is a popular area for both Danish and international, especially German, tourists. Hotel Ansgar is already a well-driven hotel, however it may be an advantage for the hotel that it is now owned by a large hotel group in relation to e.g. operations and marketing”.
Colliers also mediated Danske Hoteller’s last purchase in 2018, where they acquired Golf Hotel Viborg.
In addition to Hotel Ansgar, Hedeby Hotel Group owns Hotel Svanen in Grindsted and Billund and Hotel Postgaarden in Fredericia.
