Council paid £5m above asking price for Croydon Park Hotel

Inside Croydon

Under Jo “We’re Not Stupid” Negrini, Croydon Council last month paid £29.8million to buy the Croydon Park Hotel – nearly £5million more than the asking price when the property was put on the market just weeks earlier.

Negrini, the council’s chief executive, reckons that the Croydon Park Hotel can make £1million a year for the Town Hall’s stretched coffers.

Evans Randall had put the hotel on the market in June this year for just £25million.
