A SOLICITOR has bought the Huddersfield Hotel and today revealed his grand plans to re-open it.
Simmy Sekhon, a former Huddersfield University law student, completed the deal to acquire the hotel over the weekend.
Mr Sekhon spoke to the Examiner about his plans for the Huddersfield Hotel, which is at the bottom of Kirkgate.
He said: “We have done the deal to acquire the hotel and we have a contract in place.
“It’s great news for Huddersfield because we want to revive the area and bring it back to life.”
He said ideas for refurbishment were already under way with Huddersfield- based Acumen Designers and Architects Ltd, based at nearby Old Leeds Road, to revive the run-down hotel.
“We hope that we can continue to serve the travelling guests coming in and out of Huddersfield,” Mr Sekhon added.
“We believe that there is the market for an affordable luxury hotel with high-quality facilities.”
Mr Sekhon studied law at Huddersfield University and founded the Sekhon Firth Solicitors in Fartown.
