More Secure Future For Ardsley House

Tuesday April 1 2014

We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley

THE group which owned Ardsley House has been bought out after it went into administration.

Birmingham-based Forestdale Hotels Limited, which owned the Barnsley Road hotel and a number of subsidiary companies, went into administration last month.

The company has since been bought by London-based St James's Hotel Properties Ltd, preserving 550 jobs across a number of hotels throughout the UK.

Business restructuring partners BDO LLP was appointed administrator of Forestdale, which comprised of eight smaller companies, and secured its sale.

Kim Rayment, BDO business restructuring partner, said: "We are pleased to have concluded the sale of the majority of the business and assets of the group, preserving more than 550 hotel jobs.

"The sale was the best option to secure the future of the business, enabling it to move forward confidently and on a secure financial footing."

That's great to hear. Secure all them jobs. Theres a lot of history at this hotel but sadly the Decor is history too. Needs updating ..all of it updating. Looks very outdated and the carpark and outside looks like it hasnt been used in years. It could be made to look lovely

Couldn't agree more. Stayed there for a wedding a few months back and the bedroom was filthy. Travel Lodge I stayed in the week after was much cleaner. The grey flashing at the front on the building makes it look like an old folks home.
