Ramada becomes Britannia
Britannia Hotels has bought the 103-bedroom Ramada Hotel Leeds North from the administrators – and immediately changed it name to Britannia Leeds Hotel. The hotel is well known in the area as it incorporates the shell of the old Seacroft Windmill, which has been a local landmark for many generations. Situated six miles from Leeds city centre, the hotel also offers a 78 cover restaurant and a range of conference and banqueting facilities for up to 340. Kirstie Provan, joint administrator of Millgreen View Securities, the previous owner, said the sale would save 42 local jobs.
