Comwell passes on the operation of Swedish Varbergs Kusthotell

For almost 30 years, Comwell Hotels has operated Varbergs Kusthotell in Sweden. When the contract expires this year, Comwell will hand over the operation to a new operator.

The Danish-owned hotel chain Comwell Hotels has been represented in the Swedish coastal town of Varberg since 1996, but is now handing over the operation of the hotel property to new hands at the end of 2024.

"We have been incredibly happy to run the hotel and spa in Varberg. The hotel is located in fantastic surroundings right on the rocky coast, and it is of course always with sadness when such a chapter ends. But for strategic reasons, we now want to hand over the operation to another party," says Peter Schelde, CEO of Comwell Hotels, who also sends a thank you to the employees:

"We would like to thank our employees for their fantastic work for almost 30 years at the hotel and at the same time wish both partners and employees all the best for the future."

Expects unchanged hotel operations

Currently, the administrator of the hotel building, Ejendomsinvest, is searching the market for a new hotel operator.

"First and foremost, we would like to thank Comwell for many years of good co-operation. Right now, we are in the market for the right operator to take over operations from Comwell. We anticipate an easy and uncomplicated transfer and that the hotel operations will continue unchanged after the change of operator," says Allan Jacobsen, CEO of Ejendomsinvest.

Comwell expects the hotel's new operator to take over all existing bookings for overnight stays, meetings and conferences until after 1 January 2025.
