Robert Smithson, Surveyor in Hotels Agency at Colliers International who are handling the sales, said: “Alderson House is close to local amenities and Bridlington itself has benefitted recently from significant local regeneration.

“Bridlington is a popular tourist coastal town on the Holderness Coast of the North Sea known as The Lobster Capital of Europe.

“The area has a thriving tourist resort with almost 50 per cent of its population (40,000) being employed in the tourist sector.

“The town offers an array of shops and restaurants in addition to the well-established holiday attractions and facilities.

“Bridlington Spa, which describes itself as the venue of choice for many artists and touring shows and a versatile place to host meetings, conferences and training, is located a short walk from the hotel.

“Although the fishing fleet has declined, the port remains popular with sea anglers for day trips along the coast or further out to local shipwrecks.”

The other Royal British Legion hotels which are being sold include Somerset Legion House, 57 Beach Road, Weston-Super-Mare, , which has 47 en-suite bedrooms and a price tag of £1,200,000 and Bennet House, 17 Lansdowne Crescent, Portrush, Northern Ireland, for £525,000.
