Established 1923

Palace Holdings Limited started life in April 1923 when it commenced operations under the name Sefton Hotel Limited.

For many years, the company did nothing other than operate the Sefton Hotel on Douglas Promenade. However, from 2005 it began to broaden its horizons with several business and asset acquisitions, and the group that operates today retains the best of these.

‍The company initially incorporated in the form of a public company and for most of its existence was as an unlisted public company with shares traded by local brokers on a ‘matched bargain’ basis.

In 2021, partially to modernise its structure, but also to facilitate a capital reconstruction in the light of the Covid pandemic, it converted to a private company under the Companies Act 2006. Today the group still has over 700 shareholders, albeit the majority of the shares are now closely held.
