Asking Price:

This hotel room is a great investment opportunity currently under construction and will be situated on the 4th floor of the development. 

George Best Hotel explained:

The developer has purchased the Scottish Mutual building in Donegal Square, Belfast on a 999 year leasehold basis and redeveloping it into The George Best Hotel providing luxury group accommodation. We are then selling each unit to  investors as a property investment opportunity.

Each investor will own the title deeds and ownership will be updated at the Land Registry. Following this our investors will sign another agreement allowing Signature Living Hotels Ltd to use to utilise their new property as a room within the hotel. Needless to say this means we are responsible for the maintenance of the property and ensure that it remains occupied

The returns for this investment are as follows:

8% net per annum for years 1-3, 

9% net for year 4 and 

10% net per annum for years 5-10. 

There is a buyback option from year three onwards that begins with a 6% uplift on the original purchase price, increasing by 2% each year, capped at 12% uplift. All returns are contractually guaranteed and paid quarterly. The great thing about this opportunity aside from the returns is it’s built in exit strategy.

Nestled on the junction of Donegall Square and Bedford Street, The George Best Hotel is set to be nothing short of remarkable. This grandiose hotel is in a prime city centre location overlooking Belfast City Hall and will pay tribute to one of the greatest footballers of our time. 

Originally named the Scottish Temperance Building before later changing to the Scottish Mutual Assurance Society Building, this beautiful Grade B1 listed building will become the focal point of the centre of Belfast. 

Built by Henry Seaver and completed in 1904, the redevelopment will incorporate and preserve much of the buildings history whilst aligning it with Signature Living’s unique vision and guest experience. Having previously served as offices, this building will be transformed into a luxury football-themed hotel featuring premium amenities, a stunning wedding and events space, a museum dedicated to the legacy of George Best, plus a stylish bar and restaurant. 

The classic Baronial style architecture will retain many of its original features across all six floors, making it the perfect heritage redevelopment for investment.
