Martin Ellis is the new owner of the Grade II-listed Olde Griffin hotel in March, Cambridgeshire.
The property overlooks the town square in the heart of March and retains many period features, including the Burmese wood carvings in the main entrance hall that were commissioned by the then-owner in 1860.
The substantial business includes 21 en-suite bedrooms, a 30-seat bar and a lounge, two split level restaurants that can seat 36 and 60 people respectively, and three function rooms that can hold 12, 55 or 120 delegates. The largest has its own dance floor and DJ console
The Norwich office of Colliers Robert Barry achieved a sale close to the asking price of £625,000 on behalf of Mrs D Reeve who has owned the property for 20 years.
