The number of large hotels on the south side of Dublin city continues to decline with news that the owners of Superquinn have bought the Montrose Hotel.
According to press reports over the weekend, the owners of the supermarket chain have agreed to buy the Montrose Hotel in Stillorgan, Dublin, from Jurys Doyle for more than €40m.
The Montrose hotel had been underperforming and was put up for sale by the Jurys Doyle group. The company recently decided to put the Burlington Hotel on the market. It has already sold Jurys in Ballsbridge and the Berkley Court to property developer Sean Dunne.
AdvertisementSelect Retail Holdings, which purchased Superquinn in August 2005, plans to build a new supermarket and apartments on the site of the hotel, according to weekend newspaper reports.
