The three-star Victoria Hotel on Kings Road has been brought by Mr Kashif Jan from Dagenham in Essex.

Mr Jan said he is looking forward to continuing the business and thanked hotel and leisure agents Fleurets who sold the hotel, for 'making his dream come true'.

The property was sold for a guide price of £925,000.

The hotel's previous owner John Hemsley, decided to put the building up for sale in December 2014 after he decided at the age of 70 that it was time to sell up.

Accommodation now includes 45 en-suite letting bedrooms, 2 dining rooms furnished for 80 covers, a licensed lounge bar and car parking to the front and side of the property.
