Lana de Savary, wife of Peter de Savary, has exchanged contracts for the much acclaimed Eastbury Hotel in the historic town of Sherborne, Dorset, with completion on 13th February 2018.
The de Savarys have forty years experience of owning and operating, internationally, luxury hotels and clubs: Cary Arms & Spa, the St James’s Clubs, Skibo Castle, Bovey Castle, Cherokee Plantation, Carnegie Abbey Club, the Abaco Club, the Old Swan & Minster Mill and many others have been successful under their leadership.
The 23-bedroomed Eastbury has been owned and managed by Paul and Nicky King for the past 17 years during which time they have achieved for the hotel and its restaurant an excellent reputation and many accolades both from the industry and its international clientele. The staff at the hotel are one of its great assets and the de Savarys very much look forward to working with them.
Lana de Savary is quoted as saying “We hope to further invest in the hotel to maintain its reputation and, subject to planning approval, add a few additional luxurious rooms as well as a boutique spa facility for hotel guests. I was particularly attracted to the Eastbury which is a period country house with lovely gardens, extraordinarily situated in the heart of the charming and quintessentially English town of Sherborne”.
Nicky and Paul will still own and manage The Three Wishes in Cheap Street. “Sherborne is our home and we have wonderful friends here. Our plans are to take some time to think about the next steps for us as a family. We would like to thank the support of all the fellow businesses in Sherborne, our wonderful local suppliers, the Sherborne Tourism Forum, Probus and Rotary clubs and everyone that has allowed us to host their special and significant events over the last 18 years. ” said Nicky King.
