The hotel is also home to the Devonshire Ballroom, the 180-cover Harlington Restaurant as well as a bar and lounge for 70 covers.

Nick Earee from Fleurets’ Brighton office commented: “Our client, Sheikh-Abid Gulzar is slowly withdrawing from the hotel market to concentrate his efforts on restoring his latest acquisition, Eastbourne Pier, back to its former glory. A spacious private suite of 8 offices on the lower ground floor provides opportunity for more letting rooms or others uses.”

The freehold is available off a guide price £5.5m with strong accounts and proven profits.
