I recently visited this hotel for business reasons and was shown around it. It has been closed for nearly two years.
Despite needing a lick of exterior paint and being rather overgrown I was pleasantly surprised by the good condition of the interior, which is a bit like the Marie Celeste, as if it had been in day to day use just yesterday!
Although closed to the public it has a resident owner who has moved back in to maintain it and oversee repairs. Sadly there was no stock whatsoever on the premises, so I couldn't have a drink or bite to eat.
Contrary to local rumours all the walls and ceilings were in good shape, one having been recently repaired. I was also assured a roofer has been booked to replace a few slates dislodged by the high winds.
I was told the hotel is being chased by several buyers wishing to develop it. Let's just hope this
nice building's exterior is put back into shape by the developer.More
