• Barclay brothers eye Claridge’s

The Barclay brothers are thought to have approached Derek Quinlan over a possible sale of Claridge’s.

The Times reports that the twins, who own the Ritz, have held talks with Quinlan, who owns a minority stake in Maybourne Hotel Group. However, it is thought that Paddy McKillen, Maybourne’s biggest shareholder, favours a refinancing of the group’s over-£600m debt.
