COLLIERS INTERNATIONAL BROKERS OFF-MARKET DEAL FOR GLASGOW HOTEL

Glasgow, 16 May 2018 - Colliers International, has facilitated the sale of a large Glasgow hotel, in an off-market deal to Asian buyers off a guide price reported to be close to £10m.

The 117-room GoGlasgow Urban Hotel was sold by Julian Troup, head of Colliers’ UK Hotels Agency, on behalf of the Crerar Hotel Group. He said the sale to Singapore-based Buxani Group followed confidential marketing of the property which reflects increasing international interest in the UK hotels sector. Julian Troup said: “The acquisition of GoGlasgow was conducted in a highly confidential fashion and is a further example of an overseas buyer securing a prime UK hotel outside of London.

Paddy Crerar, CEO of Crerar Hotel Group, said: “Colliers brought a number of parties to the table, all with the ability to transact at the level we required; however it was clear that Buxani Group were by far the most committed to the hotel and were a thoroughly decent company to deal with”.

Testimonial

“We found the work carried out by Colliers to be thoroughly excellent at all stages from pre-sale, through negotiations to the completion of the sale. We had every confidence from Colliers that we would indeed achieve the right deal for our company. The decision to retain Colliers International for the marketing of a further 5 hotels in our company was a direct consequence of the work they undertook on the sale of GoGlasgow.” - Paddy Crerar – Crerar Hotels – Sale of GoGlasgow Urban Hotel
