Change of use for Baverstock
A purpose-built hotel situated in the fast expanding town of Merthyr Tydfil in South Wales, is to be converted into a retirement home, after it was sold through the Bristol office of international hotel agents, Christie + Co for an undisclosed sum. The Baverstock Hotel fronts the A465 Heads of the Valley trunk road, with the Brecon Beacons National Park immediately to the north. It is a substantial detached property, built in the mid-1970s and traded as a 50-bed hotel with a 100-cover restaurant, a ball room to accommodate up to 400 people, two conference suites and a meeting room. The property has parking space for up to 150 cars. Merthyr Tydfil is undergoing considerable development, with new business and retail parks having been constructed. The property is within easy travelling distance to Cardiff, Swansea, Abergavenny and Brecon. The purchaser, Eddie Delaney, from Jah-Jirah Charity Homes, plans to convert the property into a retirement home.
