HotelREZ Hotels & Resorts member, the 55 bedroom country house, The Stanneylands Hotel in Wilmslow, has recently been bought by the owners of The Mere, a luxury golf resort & spa, in nearby Knutsford. The new owners, Mark Boler & Gary Corbett have been searching for a second site to grow the operation of The Mere brand for the last 12 months, and are planning to reposition the property as a boutique country house hotel in the early summer following an investment and refurbishment programme to the guestrooms, public areas and in employee training.
According to Corbett:
“The strategic acquisition of The Stanneylands allows us to transfer the operational and customer experience that we are renowned for delivering at The Mere, to The Stanneylands , coupled with our plans to improve the product and services on offer, we are confident that this will delight existing guests as well as attract new customers. The Stanneylands product and reputation is a perfect fit to spearhead our ambition to grow the operation of The Mere brand.”
“We’re delighted to be the new owners of The Stanneylands a hotel that has an amazing history and reputation in the local market. We are really excited about the investment planned, getting to know the team and in restoring this hotel to its former glory with a little twist of Mere magic.”
