23 09 20 White Swan Hotel Halifax West Yorkshire on the market for 1500000 hero

The 39-bedroom three star White Swan Hotel, Halifax, West Yorkshire is being sold by global real estate advisor, Colliers International, off a guide price of £1.5 million on behalf of FICO Corporation.

The town centre hotel is an imposing and impressive four storey Grade 2 listed property and benefits from an extensive range of public areas including large entrance lobby / lounge; former bar space / overflow lounge area; a breakfast room/restaurant and two large conference rooms including a magnificent ballroom with a sprung dancefloor. The hotel also owns a popular restaurant and retail shop which are presently leased out.

Situated in the heart of historic Halifax, the onetime ‘Wool Market’ of the north, the White Swan Hotel originally opened in 1858 and occupies an excellent trading location right in the heart of the town centre yet is still accessible by car, close to the full range of amenities the area offers.

The hotel is located near to the town’s main bus/coach station, the Woolshops Shopping Centre and Vue Cinema and is only a short walk from the railway station. Other local attractions including Eureka, the children’s science museum, the Calderdale Industrial Museum and Victoria Theatre. Furthermore, there are a number of corporate occupiers based in the vicinity including Lloyds Banking Group’s Halifax bank headquarters, which is a short walk away and the town hall / council offices, which are located opposite.

Robert Smithson, Senior Surveyor, Hotels Agency at Colliers International commented: “This town centre hotel provides an exciting opportunity for new owners to re-establish a strong business as Halifax is strategically well located being within easy access to a number of major areas of population and significant transport links including Leeds, Bradford and Manchester.

“Furthermore, the hotel is in an ideal location to explore West Yorkshire and its shopping, Pennines and Bronte Country as well as visit corporate businesses so would welcome trade and tourist customers alike.”
