In what the new owner’s PR says is a continuation to the theme of irreplaceable coastal properties changing hands of late, a Byron Bay business operation has spread its wings in order to acquire the Lennox Head Hotel.

The Hotel, owned for in excess of a decade by the private Campbell and Lister families, has discreetly changed hands for an undisclosed sum to the local Fraser Short and Stu Laundy hospitality consortium.

Outgoing owners, brothers Clyde and Greg Campbell said they feel very privileged to have owned such an iconic hotel. ‘The decision to sell was not one that our families made lightly but we are excited about the opportunities this presents for our team and the community.

‘We welcome the Short and Laundy families to Lennox and look forward to remaining involved in the community through our other businesses.’

New owner Fraser Short said his family have a house on Belongil in Byron Bay. ‘The Northern Rivers is my little family’s second home; so with both The Balcony Bar and Oyster Room and The Farm Byron Bay all in our group, Ally and I are excited to expand into such an amazing community.

‘Lennox Head is both a world class destination and a sought after lifestyle for those that are lucky enough to enjoy it.

‘The Lennox presented itself as an unmissable asset so we joined together with our long term partners the Laundy family to ensure we can deliver back to the community a gathering place that represents their lifestyle and one they can be proud of being associated with.’
