New Owner for Scarborough Hotel

Scarborough's New Southlands Hotel has a new owner.

Leeds-based Caledonian Leisure, which operates under the Caledonian Travel and UKBreakaways brands, has announced that in partnership with its investors has completed the purchase of the New Southlands Hotel in Scarborough.

The 55-bedroom hotel, soon to be renamed The Caledonian New Southlands Hotel, becomes the fourth hotel to join The Caledonian Hotel Collection, following the acquisition of the Caledonian Claymore Hotel in Arrochar last year and, more recently, the Caledonian Tower in Blackpool (formerly known as the Liberty’s) and the Caledonian Torbay in Torquay.

Graham Rogers, Managing Director at Caledonian Leisure, says:

“The Caledonian New Southlands Hotel in Scarborough is the perfect addition to The Caledonian Hotel Collection as we continue to expand our portfolio of hotels in key UK destinations.

“The hotel is renowned for providing excellent accommodation and a warm Yorkshire hospitality delivered by a friendly team who share our customer first ethos. Scarborough remains one of the UK’s top holiday destinations and one of our best-selling resorts, with customer numbers increasing year on year across our brands. We look forward to offering a variety of packages to the Caledonian New Southlands Hotel through both our own brand channels, digital platforms and established network of travel agents.”

The New Southlands Hotel has long been a firm favourite with Caledonian Travel customers due to its quiet location and close proximity to the resort’s award-winning beaches, town centre and bustling harbour.

Following the acquisition, the hotel’s General Manager Ruth Janicki and entire team will join the Caledonian Leisure family.

Ruth Janicki says:

“We are delighted to be joining the Caledonian family and can’t wait to start to make memories for both new and repeat customers. Sharing the values of ‘customer first’ with the whole team at Caledonian will ensure we keep delivering exceptional stays in this stunning resort.”

The acquisition of the New Southlands Hotel comes on the back of Caledonian Leisure recording an annual turnover of over £55million for 2023, a 40% increase on the previous year.
