An Attractive & Spacious Grade II Listed Former Hotel, situated within a prominent Town Centre Location, considered suitable for continuation as a hotel, restaurant and wedding venue or a variety of alternative uses including residential, subject to obtaining the appropriate planning permission and Listed Building Consent
Property DescriptionThe Knighton Hotel is believed to date from 1867 with various subsequent additions. The property which is Grade II Listed comprises two elements, a stone built building adjoining a half timbered building. The accommodation is principally arranged over basement, ground and two upper floors. There are extensive lounge areas, bar, restaurant for approximately 80 covers and a particularly impressive first floor function room for approximately 200 covers, having double height ceiling and gallery landing with attractive stone walls in part and exposed timber beams to the ceilings. There are 16 en-suite letting rooms and owner/staff accommodation including a good sized duplex flat with its own separate entrance. There is a commercial kitchen with food hoists servicing the banqueting suite, dry store, washing up section, cellars, plant room and laundry room. There is an additional satellite kitchen adjacent to the function room on the first floor. The property features from a particularly attractive Cantalibra staircase rising to the upper floors. Outside and to the rear are two timber decks that were constructed to service the main restaurant and bar. We understand that when the hotel was operational, it had 12 permits for the public car park immediately to the rear and we assume these were obtained from the Local Authority.
LocationThe Knighton Hotel is an impressive building, standing in the heart of the historic town centre.
Knighton is an attractive town in its own right and a centre for the surrounding smaller villages. It lies on the border of England and Wales, having easy access to Ludlow, Leominster, Hereford and Shrewsbury, as well as the county town of Llandrindod Wells. Knighton is a popular tourist destination for those exploring Offa's Dyke and other areas within rural mid-Wales.
