The Fort Road Hotel in Margate sits atop a cliff with direct sea and beach views and overlooking the town’s celebrated Turner Gallery.

It was derelict since being abandoned in the 1990s when last used as an HMO.

As a prominent building in Margate’s Old Town Conservation area, and with anecdotal evidence of JMW Turner being a patron, the building has been the subject of several campaigns for listing.

The 12 bed hotel included restaurant at ground floor and basement bar.
