The Forbury Hotel in Reading, the home of chef Daniel Galmiche`s fine dining restaurant, Eden, has gone into administration.
Administrators from Baker Tilly were appointed yesterday by the hotel’s owners, Forbury Hotel Limited. Matthew Wild, who, with Mark Wilson is acting as administrator, said that the hotel was “trading with the expectations of selling”.
According to BigHospitality`s sister publication Hotel Report, Colliers Robert Barry has been instructed to market the hotel, although a sum has yet to be fixed.
The hotel, which is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, was created by parent company the Waterbridge group, which is chaired by Toby Hunter. Waterbridge’s other investments include office space in Hemel Hempstead.
The 24-room hotel opened in 2006 after a £6m refurbishment of what had been serviced apartments. It features two restaurants - Former Cliveden chef Galmiche`s 20-cover fine dining Eden and brasserie Cerise - as well as a 30-seat cinema.
