Fleurets disposed of the closed hotel on behalf of its owners, from an asking price of £1m.

 

Located in the town centre, the property includes 38 bedrooms, bar, restaurant, lounge and a basement bar.

 

The site will need refurbishing before launching – and it is not yet clear whether the managed house operator will continue to operate it as a hotel.
