Canterbury Hotel and Castle Hotel put up for sale by owner Lynda Desmarais

Two popular historic hotels have been put up for sale.

Owner Lynda Desmarais is looking to sell the hotels, both of which are in Canterbury and date back to the 18th century.

The Canterbury Hotel in Wincheap is a three-star hotel with 15 guest bedrooms, swimming pool and on-site manager's apartment. Believed to be one of the oldest hotels in the city, parts of it date back to the late 18th century. It is on the market for offers in the region of £1.55million.

Meanwhile the Castle Hotel in Castle Street has a £1.75m price tag. Built in the 1730s, it incorporates part of the Norman city walls and the only remaining section of the original city moat. It features 15 bedrooms and a walled garden.

Lynda Desmarais explained: “It has been a difficult decision to sell, particularly Castle House as it was my first hotel.

"Alongside our hard working teams, we have thoroughly enjoyed establishing the Castle House and Canterbury as two of the finest hotels in Canterbury."

Paul Barrasford, a director in the hotels agency team at Colliers International, which is handling the sale of both sites, said: “Canterbury is one of the region’s most visited tourist destinations and an important south east hub with a vibrant local economy.

"Both hotels, with their combination of great location and product offering, are ideally placed to capitalise on the high levels of leisure and corporate visitors to the area. Each hotel is an established business in its own right and so we expect to receive strong interest in the hotels both on a joint and individual basis."
