THE Queens Hotel has been put on the market for sale with GVA Humberts Leisure for £2.6m.

The landmark Promenade hotel had been put on the market in November, but it is now being marketed by the firm of specialist chartered surveyors and international advisors in leisure business and property.

Owned for years by Pat Mancini (pictured), dubbed the Queen of Blackpool by visiting celebrities, who passed away last month, the hotel had 107 bedrooms.

The South Promenade venue has a 240-cover restaurant, three bars, conference facilities, a business centre and a fitness centre.

The business last year made a profit of more than £300,000 on sales of £2m.

David Coupe of Coupe Bradbury Solicitors, the executor of Mrs Mancini’s estate, said: “It was Pat’s wish that following her death, the hotel would move into the ownership of a party who would be eager to see the business continue and go from strength to strength and who would also enjoy the same happiness and success in running this hotel as was enjoyed by herself and Rudi over many years.”

Ben Brown, senior surveyor at GVA, added: “This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced hotelier or investor to purchase one of Blackpool’s best-known hotels, which benefits from a high level of repeat custom from both individual holidaymakers and coach tour operators.

“We have had significant interest in the hotel already and are confident that it will not be on the market for long.”
