Yorkshire’s Gomersal Park Hotel & Spa comes to market through Christie & Co

Specialist hotel property adviser, Christie & Co, is excited to report the highly impressive Gomersal Park Hotel and Spa in West Yorkshire is up for sale.

Formerly owned by Leeds United legend John Charles, Gomersal Park Hotel has been expanded and transformed into a huge 89-bedroom hotel, function and wedding venue, crowned by the magnificent Dream Spa, which was built by the current owner, Michael Downs in 2015 and recently voted one of the best spas in the North of England.

The hotel is located just off the M62 motorway which connects a multitude of adjoining towns to Leeds, Bradford and Greater Manchester, creating one of the UK’s most populous areas. This massive population and commerce hub draws steady local and visitor trade to the hotel, whilst the nearby Peak District National Park plus an array of tourist attractions and destinations in the region, attracts very healthy leisure-related business.

Sitting on a five-acre site, which includes 150  car parking spaces, generous lawned areas and its own picturesque pond, along with several versatile and interchangeable function suites, Gomersal Park Hotel lends itself to hosting weddings and events.

The hotel’s highlight feature, The Dream Spa at Gomersal Park comprises a large heated swimming pool with sauna and changing rooms, a mud Rasul steam room, an open-air spa bath, a nail bar and eight individual treatment and beauty rooms. There is also a well-stocked gymnasium and restaurant. Income from the spa and gym accounts for over 30 per cent of the hotel turnover and is also a key contributor towards overall hotel footfall.

Michael Downs, the seller, comments, “I am very proud of the hotel, its staff and its reputation as one of the main venues in the region. The addition of the Dream Spa has not only helped to offer something special for our guests and members but has also made a huge difference to trade and profits. I am a reluctant seller but the time has come for me to step away from the business, which offers a new owner a very good opportunity with great profits as well as excellent forward bookings for weddings, functions and room income.”

Mark Worley, Hotel Director at Christie & Co, says of the opportunity, “It is rare that a hotel of this magnitude comes to the open market and so we are excited to offer Gomersal Park for sale. The massive population hub in which it sits, its proximity to the road and rail network, as well as Leeds Bradford Airport, plus the excellent levels of trade, make this a great purchase for a hotel or hospitality group.”
