Opportunity arises to purchase established Hampshire hotel

27 06 22 Opportunity arises to purchase established Hampshire hotel hero

The Brookfield Hotel in Emsworth is on the market for £3,400,000.

A 42-bedroom harbourside hotel on the outskirts of South Downs National Park, is being marketed by commercial real estate specialists Colliers.

The Brookfield Hotel is located in a prominent roadside position near the coastal village of Emsworth. Situated on the edge of the Chichester harbour area of outstanding natural beauty, makes this property an ideal base for those visiting the south coast.

Established in 1972, the hotel was originally built as two substantial residential properties, which has been extensively re-developed and extended over time.

The hotel is a privately owned business with high levels of repeat business and a strong local following year-round. This is supported by its large offering of public areas, including restaurant for 80 covers, four meeting and events rooms, lounge and bar for 30 covers and a car park to hold 70 cars. At the rear of the hotel, the Hermitage Suite can host up to 130 people. The variety of choice makes this modern hotel a popular venue for conferences and events.

Simon Hughes said “After 15 years of successful Hughes family ownership, semi-retirement is calling. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time running the business and are very proud of our achievements. The hotel is loved by many and we now hope to find a buyer that will share the same passion. We recognise that it is time for fresh eyes and ideas to drive Brookfield forward and onto even greater success.”

The hotel benefits hugely from the leisure trade, both in passing and destination, as well as business travellers. The location is an exceptional base to explore South Downs National Park which is a short drive to the north. Portsmouth and the historic Naval Dockyard is a 7-mile drive to the west, and the cathedral city of Chichester is 10 miles to the east. Events such as the world-famous Festival of Speed at the Goodwood Estate, is held just 11 miles away from the hotel, attracting international tourists. The hotel is also easy access to London, with a short journey of one hour and 33 minutes from Waterloo to Havant station, which is just two miles away.

Josh Sullivan, associate director at Hotels Agency team at Colliers comments: “The Brookfield Hotel has been operated by our clients for almost two decades and in that time the family has created an established and consistent profitable business. It is situated in a commanding and highly sought-after location close to various key demand generators, therefore we expect the sale to generate a significant amount of interest. This sale presents a unique opportunity for an operator to acquire an income producing asset that benefits from an enviable mix of both corporate and leisure trade.”
