Historic Wisbech hotel the Rose & Crown could re-open soon

A 600-year-old hotel in the centre of Wisbech is set to re-open after being sold to new owners.

The 29-bedroom Grade II listed Rose & Crown, which stands just off the town's Market Square, closed on February 2.

It was placed on the market and has now been bought for 'in the region of �500,000'.

Ashley Clark, of agents Colliers International, said: 'The new owners have family links to the town and very exciting plans for the hotel's refurbishment and re-launch.

'I am sure the project will prove very rewarding for them.'

Today the hotel's windows are clad in steel shutters and its bars Tidnam's Tipple and The Swan are closed.

Former owners Keyhole Heritage Hotels also owned the nearby White Lion, by Town Bridge. That too has been sold and is also set to reopen.
