John Lewis Partnership acquires Bala Lake Hotel

04 April 2008

John Lewis Partnership (JLP) has acquired the Bala Lake Hotel in Snowdonia, Wales, for an undisclosed sum.

Christie + Co acted on behalf of JLP, while Knight Frank acted on behalf of the vendor.

JLP, which was voted Britain’s favourite retailer for its John Lewis department stores and Waitrose supermarkets, has purchased the leisure facility for the benefit of its Partners in the region.

Situated on the south side of Bala Lake, the hotel together with grounds of approximately 70acres was identified and negotiated by Christie + Co following a long search for a facility offering holidays for employees and their families seeking access to more outdoor based pursuits.

JLP already owns four further leisure destinations at Ambleside, Brownsea Island, Cookham in Buckinghamshire, and Leckford in Hampshire, which have been acquired over the years to ensure the health and well being of all its employees across the UK.
