A well-known hotel close to Birmingham International Airport and the NEC is up for sale at Bond Wolfe Auctions’ remote bidding auction on Wednesday 24 June.
The Heath Lodge Hotel at 117 Coleshill Road in Marston Green, which has been offering smart accommodation since the late 1960s, has a guide price* of £750,000+.
The detached, three-storey property has 23 en suite bedrooms for guests, all well fitted out with flat screen TVs, tea and coffee facilities and wireless broadband, with an additional bedroom currently used by staff.
Ian Tudor, managing director at Bond Wolfe Auctions, said: “Heath Lodge is a long-established and very well-presented hotel with a licensed bar and restaurant.
“But it’s the hotel’s location that will make it really popular with bidders at our auction, with it being around one-and-a-half miles from the city’s international airport and railway stations, The NEC and Resorts World.
“The proximity of nearby business centres coupled with other places of interest and tourist attractions ensure a broad business base.
“This makes it a prime accommodation venue for business visitors and conference delegates during the week, and then tourists and NEC concert-goers at the weekend, and it could be a healthy ongoing business to develop once the COVID-19 lockdown eases.”
The bedrooms at the hotel comprise of nine doubles, six twins, eight singles and one triple, and the property is easily accessible from the M42 and M6 motorways.
Communal areas include a sun lounge overlooking rear grounds, the restaurant and bar, a reception and lounge area, fully equipped catering kitchen, laundry room, storerooms and staff toilets.
At the rear is a terrace and landscaped gardens, including a large modern shed which has been used as an office by the current owners, and at the front is a guest car park for around 20 cars.
Mr Tudor added: “While the property is suitable for a continuation of its existing use as a hotel, it could just as easily be developed for a variety of alternative uses including residential, care home, multiple occupation or day nursery, subject to planning permission.”
The hotel is just one of 131 properties in the auction on Wednesday 24 June that starts at 10am and will be livestreamed via Bond Wolfe Auctions’ website with remote bidding by proxy, telephone or internet only. Interested parties must re-registration no later than 24 hours before the auction at https://www.bondwolfeauctions.com/remote-bidding/
