Bryn Howel Hotel has new owner

* The Bryn Howel Hotel. 

The Bryn Howel in Llangollen has been bought for an undisclosed sum.

The buyers were named yesterday as Anrai Rose Limited.

The hotel had been in administration under KPMG since the collapse of Stephanie Booth's Llangollen Hotels group, of which it was part, in July last year.
A statement released by the hotel said: “The landmark hotel formerly belonged to entrepreneur and TV celebrity Stephanie Booth.

“This was the last of her chain of hotels to find a buyer.

“The management and staff would like to take this opportunity to thank Stephanie Booth for establishing such a successful business and which we intend to maintain under the new private ownership.

“Our new owners were able to greet many of our regular customers over the course of the weekend and seemed equally delighted that the future of the Bryn Howel Hotel has now been secured.”

The general manager of nine years Mr David Irwin was delighted and promised the hotel would maintain its high standards.

It is now planned to refurbish the hotel, but not alter its ambience or historic aspect.

Booth’s Llangollen Hotel Group – which also included Bodidris Hall in Llandegla – went into administration in July last year.

Last month, the Wild Pheasant, also previously owned by Ms Booth, was bought for £2.2million, safeguarding 50 jobs.

It was acquired by London-based investor Asif Siddiqui.

Last June, the Chainbridge Hotel was bought by businessman and hotelier Seamus O'Keeffe.
