Our Experience in the Hospitality, Leisure, and Tourism Industry

With the UK Government’s recent announcement that the first 50 asylum hotels are to close by the end of January following the end of their contracts, there is now a desire to refurbish and reopen these hotels to the public. These hotels have played a vital role in housing asylum seekers; however the Government has taken the decision to start the process of closing them. Bradley-Mason LLP offers a range of advice and expertise around this and within the hotel sector in general. With strategic advice we combine our dilapidations skills with our knowledge of hotels to get the best results for our clients.

Bradley Mason have acted as consultants for private clients on a number of UK, European and worldwide hotels for investment, building consultancy and acquisition purposes. With our 20th year of business fast approaching we have amassed a great deal of experience offering our wide range of specialist services across the leisure and tourism industry. When operating a hotel, we understand that maintaining the physical condition of your property is paramount. With our expertise in a range of building surveys, dilapidations and building defect investigations we can help to solve a variety of property-related issues.

We have previously been engaged to undertake a building investment survey of a 770 bed hotel in Frankfurt, Germany. Our investment survey concentrated on the general standard and condition of the building and noted any principal defects and shortcomings which could have affected the investment interest. More recently we have undertaken a survey for a hotel dating back to the 1860s occupying a prominent position fronting the River Amstel. As part of the survey, we worked alongside an experienced mechanical and electrical consultant which allowed a further, usually hidden, dimension of the property’s condition to be assessed.

We have an understanding of various legislative controls throughout Europe and by working with regional architects have offered advice on the acquisition and also subsequent occupation of a number of substantial hotels in such locations as the Netherlands, Cambodia and Laos. Our reports provide clear, concise advice and strike a fine balance between detail and length with enough precision so the problems can be understood and remedied.
