A 19th century hotel has failed to sell at auction.

The Clyffe Hotel, at 3 Kirkley Cliff, in south Lowestoft was due to be sold when it was auctioned off last month.

The hotel at Kirkley Cliff  that features "breathtaking sea views" was marketed by Auction House East Anglia as it was offered in association with Paul Hubbard Estate Agents.

It was due to be sold at an online auction on March 20 with a minimum guide price of £750,000 and £850,000, plus fees, after being postponed prior to Auction House East Anglia's previous three online auctions.

With the boutique hotel being sold on a freehold tenure, the description from the auctioneers stated: "Stunning Grade II listed, 19th century boutique hotel with breathtaking sea views, 16 spacious double rooms with en-suites and a large private function room.

Lowestoft Journal:

"This impressive hotel was built in 1876 and was originally used as a family home, before being turned into apartments just after the turn of the 20th century.

"Since then, the property has been a YMCA holiday centre, a home for the elderly and then back to self-contained flats.

"The current owners lovingly restored the building in 2014 and the hotel now offers 16 boutique rooms with luxury bathrooms all finished with high end furnishings.

"Each room offers a unique feature from sea views to a disabled room and all floors can be accessed via a lift or for the more energetic a beautiful staircase with mahogany hand rail sweeps the centre of the building.

"The hotel offers a restaurant seating 80 covers - currently serving breakfast only - a fully licenced bar and a function room, all of which could enhance the income for a potential investor.

"The hotel is currently managed by a couple who occupy the ground floor serviced accommodation and is overseen by the owners and part-time staff members."

But following the auction, the auctioneers said that "the bidding reached £734,000", however The Clyffe Hotel at 3 Kirkley Cliff in Lowestoft was "unsold" at the auction.
