A former hotel in West Cumbria is set to go under the hammer later this month.

The Commercial, on High Street in Cleator Moor, has a guide price of £55,000 and is one of the lots up for sale at an online auction on April 21.

The former hotel, on the edge of the Square, was extended a few years ago to integrate the next-door Albert and reopened in 2015, primarily as a pub.

The three-storey property's ground floor has a bar, lounge and games area.

The first floor has two reception rooms, six bedrooms, two kitchens, two bathrooms, toilets and two store rooms.

The second floor has four double bedrooms and three single bedrooms.

It also has a self-contained two-bedroom flat at the rear.

It was previously granted planning permission for conversion to two houses and six apartments.

The Commercial is being marketed by auction house Pugh.

Paul Thompson, managing director, said: “While changing leisure habits have undoubtedly triggered hard times for the pub industry, buildings such as the Commercial always offer potential for strategic redevelopment schemes and it would be tremendous to see the hotel become an asset to the community once again.”
