Doubt cast over future of Ardsley House

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Friday 23rd May 2014

THE future of Ardsley House Hotel is in doubt and a review is being carried out amid 'siginificant losses'.

 

Couples due to get married at the hotel from August onward have been offered refunds after being called earlier this week to be told it may not be open after the summer.

 

Up to 50 staff also face redundancy.

More likely due to rrelegation from the Championship and the fact that League 1 away teams are less likely to stay there

The management were an absolute joke. I booked my wedding for here In July..... Lost £500 becauseI was the one who cancelled when I didn't believe that they were not going into administration!!! All I can say is thank god i followed my gut instinct not to believing them!!

What a shame for what was a once highly successful business providing a high standard of hospitality to customers in the town

Ardsley House has to compete against the cheap budget hotels that have taken over the town. Cheap rooms , without breakfast are heavily marketed by the new motels. Brooklands offers cheap deals on wowcher to compete in this market. Sad this once lovely hotel is in decline. What will replace it? Come on Ramada, Fairway, Travelodge and Premier inn up your prices, room rates have gone down in price over the last 10 years, but the electricity,food rates and staff wages have all gone up. How could Ardsley House survive in this market?
