Two Aristel hotels join Classic British Hotels

Two properties within the Aristel Hotels portfolio have left the Best Western consortium to join Classic British Hotels.

The decision was taken to move the 63-bedroom Donnington Manor hotel in Sevenoaks, Kent, and the 53-bedroom Frensham Pond hotel & spa, near Farnham, Surrey, following a multi-million pound investment in the two hotels by the owner Kirit Patel.

Classic British Hotels is a collection of more than 70 independent hotels, primarily in the four-star category. Other hotels to join the sales and marketing body recently include the 215-bedroom Dalmahoy hotel & country club in Edinburgh and the 153-bedroom Shrigley Hall hotel & country club near Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Anup Sarin, operations group director, said: "Classic British Hotels have built an enviable reputation across the UK for their expertise in marketing quality four-star hotels and I am confident both properties will go from strength to strength under their direction and guidance."

Len Louis, chief executive of Classic British Hotels, said: "We will be working in partnership to deliver all the clout of a global hotel brand whilst retaining what is unique about these two quality four star hotels".

Aristel Hotels is also the owner of two other hotels: the 121-bedroom Double Tree by Hilton London Marble Arch and the Chatsworth hotel, Hastings, East Sussex.
