The Royal Hotel in Weymouth has sold to Leisureplex Hotel Group on behalf of Coast & Country Collection.

Christie & Co oversaw the transfer of the 19th century Victorian building, which features 71 bedrooms and lies on the town’s Georgian curved bay.

It becomes the 24th property in the Leisureplex Collection.

Emma Russell, Managing Director of Alfa Leisureplex Group, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be welcoming the Royal Hotel to the Leisureplex Hotel Group and we’re looking forward to welcoming General Manager Denise and her team to our employee-owned family.

“Our customers have been requesting that we offer a Leisureplex hotel in Weymouth for a number of years, so it’s great that we can finally fulfil this wish with the purchase of one of the finest hotels in Weymouth.

“This purchase follows the acquisition of the Norfolk Royale Hotel in Bournemouth and the Waverley Castle Hotel in Melrose, as we continue to expand our range of destinations across the UK.”
