A historic Grade-II listed hotel, which can be considered as the oldest one in England, has gone on sale with a £1.4 million price tag. The Lowther Hotel in Goole, East Yorkshire, was built in 1824 by bridge maker Sir Edward Banks and overlooks the River Ouse. The nearby Drake pub is also included as part of the sale.
Owners Howard and Julie Duckworth, who bought the Georgian hotel in 2008 and restored it to its former glory, have now decided to sell the hotel. Howard said, “It was originally built to be the home of visiting architects and engineers who were working on the docks, which are just across the road. The hotel has exactly the same footprint as it had when it was built, so if your great-great-grandparent came to see it today, they would still recognize it.
In a statement regarding the sale, the couple said, “After much soul searching, the family have decided that with Howard’s illness and Julie being past retirement age, it has become evident over the last year that The Lowther and The Drake deserve someone else with the passion and drive to take them forward to the next level.”
The hotel includes 12 en-suite guest bedrooms over three storeys, private function rooms and two licensed pubs, Eddie’s Bar & Bistro and the Voodoo Chilli Nightclub. The courtyard of the hotel, which has been used for open air events, leads to the Coach House, a bar and events space often used for private parties, the Coco Havana Bar, and the JD Grill diner and takeaway.
