Freehold South Kensington boutique leased hotel with significant reversionary upside.
The Exhibitionist comprises two freehold interconnecting Victorian properties arranged over lower ground, raised ground and five upper floors, with a lift serving all floors. At raised ground floor level are generous hotel reception, bar and dining areas. At lower ground floor there are two bedroom suites as well as a generous commercial kitchen capable of servicing the raised ground floor front of house F&B; facilities.
The property is exceptionally well presented both externally and internally as a result of significant investment into the building in 2015 with the property benefitting from air conditioning and double glazing. This refurbishment was funded by the tenant. As part of the 2015 refurbishment dining space at lower ground floor was converted into two additional bedroom suites, and an oversized bedroom on the 5th floor was divided to form two bedrooms. In total there are currently 37 rooms including 5 suites. A breakdown of the room-types, room sizes and floor area are presented on the right hand side.
All inspections are to be arranged and accompanied by BNP Paribas Real Estate who are the vendors’ sole selling agents. No approaches are to be made directly to the owner, the tenant or the staff.
