New owner for Scarborough hotel as Leeds firm completes purchase

A 55-bedroom hotel in Scarborough is under new ownership from Leeds-based Caledonian Leisure and its investment partners.

The New Southlands Hotel, soon to be renamed The Caledonian New Southlands Hotel, becomes the fourth hotel to join The Caledonian Hotel Collection.

It follows the acquisition of the Caledonian Claymore Hotel in Arrochar last year and, more recently, the Caledonian Tower in Blackpool, formerly known as the Liberty’s, and the Caledonian Torbay in Torquay.
