ADMINISTRATORS have been appointed at the Bolton Whites Hotel as it prepared to open its doors once again.

Andrew Hosking, Sean Bucknall and Michael Kiely, partners at business advisory firm Quantuma, have been appointed joint administrators of Bolton Whites Hotel Limited.

The 125-bedroom hotel, situated within Bolton WanderersUniversity of Bolton Stadium, had ceased to operate on May 1 as the cash-crisis at the club deepened.

Paul Appleton and Asher Miller of David Rubin & partners were appointed as joint administrators of Burnden Leisure Limited and Bolton Wanderers Football and Athletic Company on Monday.

Quantuma partner and joint administrator Andrew Hosking said “The joint administrators will be seeking to resume trading of the hotel at the earliest opportunity. The hotel is an integral part of the club and with the football season having drawn to a close, it is our priority to ensure that operations at the hotel resume and revenues are generated.

“We will be working closely with the joint administrators of Bolton Wanderers Football and Athletic Club and Burnden Leisure Limited to assist in achieving the optimum outcome for creditors and securing a long-term future for the club.”
