A Newquay hotel that housed asylum seekers has gone on the market with a guide price of £3,850,000.

The Beresford Hotel at the Narrowcliff is currently being refurbished in readiness for the start of the tourism season after the migrants moved out last month.

The Home Office had moved the asylum seekers into the hotel in November, which led to protests and counter protests.

Despite the hotel being refurbished the listing states the building is suited to being redeveloped or could continue to be used as a hotel.

The listing states the Beresford Hotel includes 106 well-appointed bedrooms, including single, twin, double, and family rooms.

An entrance leading to reception area and front guest lounge, seating 20, a restaurant with seating for up to 150 plus, bar and two further lounges seating 35 and 20, ball room / function room with a capacity up to 150 and a commercial kitchen.

The Rightmove listing states: “The property was built in the 1900’s and is formed from the merger of two adjoining hotels. 

“The hotel has most recently been used for a home office contract, however that has now come to an end and the hotel is reopening for the tourist season. “The business is available free and clear of current management and branding and would be well suited for continued use to capitalise on booming tourist trade in this region. Equally it is thought that the property could suit alternative use subject to planning consent.
