A Swanage hotel which is just 100 metres from the beach has new owners.

The Castleton Hotel has been sold by Goadsby Commercial’s Hotels & Leisure division to a mother and daughter team from Surrey

The hotel, which is on a prominent corner site in Highcliffe Road, includes ten en-suite letting rooms and is 4 star gold rated.

The freehold property also has an adjoining purpose-built four bedroom house. The quoting price was £995,000.

Ian Palmer, Divisional Director, Goadsby Hotels & Leisure, said the house particularly appealed to the purchasers as they were seeking private accommodation large enough to accommodate two families.

He added: “The Castleton is a well known and successful business in Swanage and as such generated considerable interest during the marketing period.

“The purchasers were very pleased to have been able to acquire the hotel which represented a lifestyle change for both of them”.
