Lyons Holiday Parks has announced the permanent closure of the Nant Hall Hotel in Prestatyn, United Kingdom, citing high running costs as the main reason for the decision, according to a report by North Wales Live.
The historic site, originally built in the 1870s as a grand residence for the local gentry, was purchased by the Mound family, the owners of Lyons, in 2010.
The family restored the property and opened it as a top hotel but has now announced that the high running costs associated with the building have made it no longer viable as a hotel and restaurant. As a result, the company will apply for a change of use for the Grade II Listed building.
The closure of the Nant Hall Hotel has come as a disappointment to those who have enjoyed staying at the venue and to the local community.
The hotel has been a popular destination for weddings and other events, and the company has said that it will fully refund all customers who have booked events at the venue.
It has also said that it will try to offer alternative venues for as many of the canceled events as possible.
In addition to the impact on customers, the closure of the Nant Hall Hotel will also affect the employees who have worked at the venue.
The company has said that it will try to relocate its employees to other locations within the group, but it still needs to be made clear how many will be able to find new positions.
“We want to preserve the Grade II listed historical landmark, but unfortunately, a hotel and restaurant is no longer viable. We will endeavor to relocate the employees to our other locations in the group. We would like to thank all the customers and staff who have supported the venue over the years,” said A spokesperson for Lyons Holiday Parks.
