The Cliftonville Hotel, an impressive, fully refurbished Grade II-listed hotel prominently located on West Cliff, in the Norfolk seaside resort of Cromer, has come to market via Christie & Co with a price tag of £1.8m.
Built in 1897, with its clifftop location arguably one of the finest throughout the region, the Cliftonville Hotel boasts an elegant Edwardian charm throughout its 30 en-suite letting rooms, extensive bar, bistro, dining and function room facilities.
The hotel has been family owned since the property was acquired through Christie & Co in 1995. During this time, the family has invested significantly in the property to add a contemporary appeal, building the business into one of the best-known hotels along the Norfolk coast.
The hotel enjoys substantial repeat business and despite being closed until May this year, bookings ahead of the summer 2021 season have reached impressive levels, reflecting the nationwide mood to holiday at home this year.
Belinda Cammell, who operates the business with husband Robert, and sister Annette Grundy, commented, “The family are delighted to have been involved with the development of the business and, coming up to 125 years of serving North Norfolk, the Cliftonville is ready to be taken forward into the next exciting period of hospitality!'
Tim Gooding, Director in Christie & Co’s Hospitality team who is handling the sale, said, “This really is one of the best hotels in the region and we are delighted to have been instructed to source a buyer, following our client’s decision to retire from the trade, having given so much support to the town during their ownership.
'The business is superbly positioned, has grown substantially since it was acquired in 1995 and now represents a quintessential East Anglian coastal hotel business, trading year-round. As such, we expect to see a good deal of interest from prospective buyers, looking to invest in the very busy hospitality market across the country.”
