It is possible for bidders to buy the entire contents of the bedrooms with three types of accommodation schemes to attract a variety of buyers and scales of purchase, accommodating the quality of a classic hotel, given we are selling everything within the hotel we expect the sale to be of interest to a wide base of other hoteliers and people in the hospitality industry generally.”
