A landmark hotel in Newmarket has been sold. Review Hotels Ltd, which already owns the town’s four-red star Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, has now acquired the three-star, 46-bedroom Rutland Arms Hotel, for an undisclosed sum.
Noel Byrne, chief executive at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa, said: “Rutland Arms Hotel is an iconic part of Newmarket’s high street and is a great addition to our portfolio. The distinctive property is built around an attractive cobbled courtyard and dates back to the 17th Century.
“Over the next three years we plan to embark on a significant refurbishment programme for the hotel, which will include extensive reparation works to the exterior and interior of the building.”
The historic Rutland Arms Hotel also features a restaurant and bar, a courtyard terrace, and conference and event facilities for up to 60 delegates, all in a convenient high street location.
Mr Byrne added: “Our aspiration is to bring the luxury and modern comforts of a boutique hotel into the classic setting of the Rutland Arms, to complement our current offering within Newmarket at Bedford Lodge Hotel & Spa.
