  • The hotel is situated on Alfred Street in the Linen Quarter. Linen Quarter is the area to the South of Belfast City Hall and would be regarded as Belfast’s main Central Business District with numerous hotels, pubs and restaurants.
  • The property is only a few minutes’ walk from Belfast’s prime retailing core and is within close proximity to Lanyon Place Railway Station, Great Victoria Street Train Station and Europa Bus Station.
  • The building comprises a 148 en-suite bedroom hotel with bar and restaurant set over ground and eight upper floors. The hotel was constructed in 2006 and includes a retail unit fronting onto Alfred Street occupied by Poppogoblin which is being retained by the vendor.
  • The hotel forms part of the Adelaide Exchange complex which comprises approximately 140,000 sq ft of grade A office accommodation and 180 space underground car park.
  • The hotel is let to Premier Inn Hotels Limited (guaranteed by Whitbread Group Plc) until 13th August 2037 (15.17 years unexpired) at a current passing rent of £529,618 per annum reflecting a passing rent of £3,578 per room.
  • Premier Inn’s lease is subject to 5 yearly rent increases to CPI capped at 4% per annum compounded. At the current CPI indices (April 2022) and then assuming 3% CPI until next review (14th August 2026) the rent could potentially be reviewed to c.£620,000 per annum.
