Llangollen’s world-famous Chainbridge Hotel (pictured) is up for sale with a price tag of £1.8m.
According to the property website Rightmove, it is on the market with

in 1827 and became a popular venue due to its location adjacent to the iconic
chain bridge over the River Dee.

says the detached two and three storey property includes 33 en-suite bedrooms,
bar, function room and restaurant.

have an unsurfaced car park for about 40/50 vehicles with a metal bridge
leading down to the hotel plus a surfaced car park at the same level of the
hotel for approximately 16 vehicles.

seating area providing riverside views along the front elevation.
In October 2012
llanblogger reported how the hotel had recently been bought for £500,000 by
Seamus O’Keeffe, then in his early twenties.
He had rescued it
from administration where it had been placed following the collapse of Stephanie Booth’s
Llangollen Hotels group of which it had been part.
O’Keeffe told llanblogger it would be more of a family business than an
investment opportunity as running hotels had been a family affair for him.
history at Leeds University he went initially into public relations with
a London agency before taking off in a completely different career
direction to help run the George III hotel near Dolgellau with his wife
Elizabeth for his parents-in-law.
Chainbridge came on the market he said he saw it as an opportunity too good to
miss and the family moved up to Llangollen.
Mr O'Keeffe told the Daily Post: "We’re under no pressure to move on, and whenever we do it will be with a heavy heart.
"It’s a magical place but we think it’s the right time to give somebody else a crack of the whip!
