9th July 2024

We have advised Caledonian Leisure on the recent acquisition of its fourth hotel for the brand, for an undisclosed sum.

The 55-room New Southlands Hotel in Scarborough joins in-house properties in Arrochar, Scotland; Blackpool and Torquay.

Caledonian Leisure operates under the Caledonian Travel and UKBreakaways brands, and will rename the hotel as The Caledonian New Southlands Hotel.

The acquisition of the New Southlands Hotel follows Caledonian Leisure recording an annual turnover of over £55 million for 2023, a 40% increase on the previous year.

“We are delighted to have once again supported Graham, David and the rest of the Caledonian team on a further portfolio acquisition” Dan Bisby, partner, Schofield Sweeney

Managing director Graham Rogers said: “The Caledonian New Southlands Hotel in Scarborough is the perfect addition to The Caledonian Hotel Collection as we continue to expand our portfolio of hotels in key UK destinations. The hotel is renowned for providing excellent accommodation and a warm Yorkshire hospitality delivered by a friendly team who share our customer first ethos. Scarborough remains one of the UK’s top holiday destinations and one of our best-selling resorts, with customer numbers increasing year on year across our brands.

We look forward to offering a variety of packages to the Caledonian New Southlands Hotel through both our own brand channels, digital platforms and established network of travel agents.”

The team advising were Dan Bisby, Alex Aitken, Liam Murphy (corporate), Tom Jackson, Jessica Townend (real estate) and Annie Gray (employment).
