The Stanneylands Hotel


The Stanneylands hotel in Wilmslow will now be repositioned as a boutique country house hotel after a refurbishment programme and employee training is completed. The change has come about following the announcement that Mark Boler and Gary Corbett are the new owners of this delightful country house, after searching for the last twelve months for a suitable property to grow The Mere brand and develop their portfolio.

The Stanneylands previous owners, Prima Hotels, went in to administration in May 2015 resulting in the sale of three of their other properties as well, and allowing Mark and Gary to purchase Stanneylands.

“The strategic acquisition of this hotel will allow us to transfer the high quality operational and customer experience that The Mere is renowned for to The Stanneylands as well, and we have plans to improve both the hotel and its services which we hope will delight existing guests as well as attract new customers. The Stanneylands product and reputation in the area is a perfect fit for us and will allow us to grow the operation of The Mere brand” commented Corbett. “We’re delighted to be the new owners of a hotel that has an amazing history and reputation locally and we are really excited about the planned investment, getting to know the team and restoring the hotel to its former glory with a touch of The Mere magic” added Mark.

Both James Burgess and Howard Gillibrand from Royal Bank of Scotland commended the purchase, adding that they were delighted to have supported the multi million pound acquisition which would build on the reputation of The Stanneylands and reward it’s loyal clientele with an expert development, utilising the experience and expertise of the The Mere Group, and offering long term opportunities as well as expanding The Mere portfolio. “We wish them all the very best with this new acquisition”

The 4 star Stanneylands country house hotel is located in tranquil countryside in Cheshire and is only 10 minutes from Manchester Airport. The hotel offers 55 bedrooms including deluxe suites and executive accommodation and guests can also enjoy fine dining in the 2AA Rosette Restaurant and contemporary Calico Café Bar.
