Leisureplex Announces Latest Hotel Acquisition
20th February 12
Family owned Leisureplex Hotels, sister company to leading coach holiday operator, Alfa Travel, has today announced the completion of its purchase of the Queens Hotel, Blackpool. The addition takes its portfolio to 20 hotels with more than 1600 bedrooms.
This 107 bedroom hotel is situated on the South Promenade between Central and South Piers just a stone’s throw from the world famous Pleasure Beach. Many of the bedrooms offer panoramic views of the coastline. In addition to a cocktail bar, the hotel has attractive lounges and a multi level recently refurbished theatre bar with superb entertainment. There is a leisure centre with indoor pool, gym and sauna available free of charge to guests.
Unlike many Blackpool hotels, the Queens has generous public areas and extensive parking for both cars and coaches.
Leisureplex Managing Director, Paul Sawbridge commented: “We are delighted to have acquired this hotel which has outstanding potential for the development of both our coach holiday and self drive businesses. In deciding upon a Blackpool hotel, we were anxious to find one with generously sized bedrooms and public areas that would fit in with our brand standards. The fact that the Queens is also in such a great location and has plenty of parking is a real bonus.”
