'Business as usual’ at well-known country house hotel, Dunsley Hall Hotel

On 13 January 2014 Bob Maxwell and Nick Reed of Begbies Traynor in Leeds were appointed as joint administrators of the well-known country house hotel, Dunsley Hall, near Whitby.

Set in five acres of landscaped grounds, the Victorian hotel has suites for up to 120 guests and is a popular venue for wedding receptions, special occasions, and conferences. The hotel will continue to trade whilst in the hands of the joint administrators who expect to sell the business as a going concern.

Joint administrator Bob Maxwell said: “Like a number of other hotels we have been appointed over the last couple of years, the financial problems at Dunsley Hall Country House Hotel have been caused by a slowdown in consumer spending.

“We are continuing to run the business as normal whilst we seek a buyer. Already, we have been approached by several interested parties and we are hopeful of completing a sale in the near future.”

All enquiries should be made to James Cresswell at Begbies Traynor on (0113) 244 0044.
