Aberdeen’s Rox Hotel to reopen after takeover


The Rox Hotel in Aberdeen City is set to reopen within weeks after being acquired by a Thai company.

Compass Hospitality expects to create up to 20 new jobs from the reopening of the downtown hotel.

In a joint venture with Seacare Hospitality, Compass purchased the Rox for an undisclosed sum. The hotel was put on the market at a price of £2 million.

The hotel closed at the start of the first coronavirus lockdown in March 2020, leading the original owners to put it up for sale.

Compass said the Rox Hotel was its seventh acquisition in Scotland and 17th in the UK, in a post-pandemic buying spree. Its other Scottish hotels are located in Dundee, Glasgow and Inverness. The company first entered the UK market in 2015.

The 32-room hotel in Aberdeen also has a ballroom and function space that can accommodate approximately 180 people, as well as the 100-seat Rox Grill Room and a 70-seat cafe and bar.

Harmil Singh, Managing Director of Compass, said: “Adding this delightful four-star property to our growing UK hotel portfolio demonstrates our confidence, particularly in the Scottish hotel market, and we continue to look forward to optimism for future growth in this area. ”
