Granville House to under the hammer on the 18th December.



The freehold of the former Granville Hotel is to be sold by order of the receiver, I think this is the flats and what was the bar and associated function rooms, you can look at the sale item here http://www.auction.co.uk/residential/LotDetails.asp?A=839&MP=24&ID=839000054&S=L&O=A and peruse the lot’s details here http://www.auction.co.uk/residential/data/full_text/dec2012/shed54.pdf

What this means either in terms of the existing residents or in terms of the part that has become semi derelict I am not entirely sure. In many ways The Granville is another of those only in Thanet stories that has run for years and will probably run for many more.

The pictures in the post are of one of the function rooms in The Granville there are more of these pictures if you follow the links below.











Rather sad really, I am not sure where the fault lies, the freeholder, the lessee, the council for not enforcing some protection.

I publish a book about the history of The Granville, here is the link should you whish to read it and can’t get to my bookshop easily http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/catalogue/the_granville_hotel___the_story_of_the_granville_hotel_ramsgate_1869_2012.htm

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
