The spokeswoman confirmed that Tomahawk’s two directors have been made redundant but said that BDO had not revealed whether or not a buyer was being sought.

She added: “The joint administrators are conducting an appraisal of the financial affairs of the companies and at present envisage that the three hotels will continue to trade.

“I can not give any details at this stage about the company’s accounts or background to the administration however it is fair to say that the recession has had an impact on the hospitality industry.”

Tomahawk bought Aston Hall in 2005 and carried out a major refurbishment project including an extension which was opened in 2008.
