Hand Picked Hotels purchases Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa

Country house hotel chain, Hand Picked Hotels has acquired the Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa in St. Helier, Jersey - taking its portfolio to 21 properties.

The group purchased the 5-star hotel from RBS Real Estate Asset Management for an estimated £15m.

The hotel features 123 bedrooms, six suites, three Rosette Michelin Tassili restaurant, Victoria Brasserie and the Park Suites, which includes a business centre with cinema, meeting rooms and events space.

It also offers a spa with indoor heated pool and gym facilities.

Hand Picked Hotel Co-Founder, Julia Hands said, 'The acquisition of Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa underlines our commitment to Hand Picked Hotels.'

'We have seen the potential for increased corporate and conference business across the Channel Islands, with strong demand from clients in London and other feeder cities throughout the UK.'

'Grand Jersey will enable us to attract conference and corporate business which tends to focus on St. Helier, while L'Horizons Hotel & Spa at St. Brelade's Bay appeals to a more leisure oriented audience.'

The Grand Jersey is the fourth purchase for the group in the last few years. Fawsley Hotel and Spa, Northamptonshire and St Pierre Park Hotel and Golf Resort in Guernsey were acquired last year and Bailbrook House was purchased in 2012.
