Alistair Pearson, the current owner, said: “After several difficult ‘Covid’ years the business performed well in 2023. Current advance room bookings - up 55% on last year - business well on its way to reach pre-Covid levels. After nearly 25 years running the business, it has been a difficult decision but with a great location, a solid business, this is a good time to pass the baton.”
