Property specialists Milan Vuceljic and Arron Kendall are delighted to have secured the sale of 30 James Street Hotel in Liverpool, formerly part of the Signature Living Hotel Group.

30 James Street is situated in the heart of the city centre opposite the famous Albert Dock and Three Graces. The luxury historic hotel has 64 bedrooms, spa and rooftop champagne bar and is well known amongst tourists and business users. The hotel was part of the Signature Living Hotel Group which unfortunately suffered financial difficulties in June 2020, with its parent company also entering administration. The group saw a significant impact on trade as a result of the lockdown restrictions in COVID. 

Moorfields Advisory were appointed administrators of 30 James Street Limited on 25 June 2020. The administrators traded the hotel with the assistance of Legacy Hotels & Resorts and implemented changes to the legal structure of the real estate in order to preserve value whilst the business was marketed for sale.

The hotel has now been sold to RIMC Hotels and Resorts on the 4th May 2023.

Milan Vuceljic, Partner said “We are delighted to secure the sale of this iconic and historic hotel in Liverpool. Like many hotels 30 James Street suffered as a result of the recession as trade struggled due to lockdowns. RIMC are a large group with hotels around the world so are well placed to ensure onward success for the hotel.”

Duncan Gray UK Managing Director of RIMC Hotels & Resorts commented: "As a leading European Hospitality development and hotel operator, we are delighted to have made 30 James Street in Liverpool - the investment entry point in the UK for our group. As an important cousin and neighbour to Liverpools world famous Three Graces, we plan an extensive programme of investment into the Hotel and former HQ of the WhiteStar Shipping Line to enhance its historic position of offering guests and visitors an unparalleled, unique & sumptuous  experience deserving and central to this vibrant city.”
