Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Countryfile -

A SEA­SIDE ho­tel that fea­tured in celebrity chef Gor­don Ram­say’s pro­gramme has been sold to a for­mer care home op­er­a­tor.

Richard and He­len Mor­gan have run the Sandgate Ho­tel at The Es­planade for the past two years, but sold up due to ill health and now plan to move back to Scot­land.

They have sold the busi­ness to Kiki Cole, who has re­cently sold a care home. She plans to im­prove the suc­cess of the ho­tel.

Es­tate agent An­drew Bush, of es­tate agents Christie and Co, said: “De­spite the eco­nomic cli­mate our mar­ket­ing gen­er­ated strong in­ter­est.”

Of­fers in the re­gion of £900,000 were sought for the prop­erty.

Gor­don Ram­say filmed at the venue for his Kitchen Night­mares se­ries in 2006, when it was run by Lois and Peter Hamil­tonSlade. He sug­gested the busi­ness should con­cen­trate on serv­ing fresh, lo­cally caught seafood.
