Kurhaus hotel sold for €32.6m, will undergo restoration

The Kurhaus hotel in Scheveningen has been sold to the Amrath Hotels Group for €32.6m

The Kurhaus, which first opened its doors in 1885, asked for court protection from creditors last year after running up debts of over €8m. Amrath was one of the parties interested in taking over the running of the hotel.

The hotel was previously operated under a management agreement by Steigenberger Hotels, which was terminated as part of the sale.

The property has now been rebranded as the Grand Hotel Amrath Kurhaus and is set to undergo a substantial investment programme to restore it to its former glory.

The Kurhaus, which still dominates the Scheveningen sea front, has had famous guests such as Winston Churchill and Audrey Hepburn. The Rolling Stones gave a concert there in 1964.

The Amrath Hotels Group is a private hotel owner and operator with 16 hotels in the Netherlands including the Grand Hotel Amrath in Amsterdam.

The other Scheveningen landmark, its pier, was sold recently to Easyhotel and is due to reopen later this year.
