HERALD HOTELS was founded in June 2013 when Managing Director James Devitt saw an opportunity to create a truly independent hotel purchasing advisory company. Utilising his long experience as a property agent and advisor in the sector, James uses his connections to build a bespoke team for each assignment under his personal direction.

Herald offers the personal service and attention to detail which cannot be matched in large organisations. Experience of large international portfolio transactions, debt advisory work, valuations, rent reviews and leading hotel development projects stand Herald in good stead to face all aspects of hotel purchases with equanimity. In short, they are the team to have on your side.
