Plenty of interest for Royal Clarence Hotel as it goes on sale at £595,000

A well-known seafront hotel in Burnham-On-Sea that went on sale this week has already attracted interest from several potential buyers.

The Royal Clarence Hotel at 31, The Esplanade is up for sale at £595,000 with Garry Berryman estate agents.

Speaking to Burnham-On-Sea.com, a spokesman for the agent, said: “We’ve already had a good deal of interest in this property and one viewing, even though it’s still early days as the property has only recently gone on sale.”

The freehold of the 15-bedroom hotel is on offer and includes a restaurant seating up to 40, a main bar and games area licensed for 200, a skittles alley, two self-contained two bedroom apartments and separate owner’s accommodation.

Existing owner Sheena Neilson told Burnham-On-Sea.com that she’s “had enough of the early mornings, late nights and the need to live on the premises.”

“We also own the lease for the Fun Pub and are likely to keep that – but we’d like to move back to Highbridge,” she said.

The Royal Clarence Hotel is one of Burnham’s oldest seafront buildings with a long history.

It was run for many years by the Davey family, and Cllr Dennis Davey is now Burnham’s Deputy Mayor.

The hotel was also the birthplace of the RCH Brewery, which is now based in Hewish.
