The Albany, a 61 bedroom hotel, has a price tag of £2.6 million and the neighbouring Mansion with 108 bedrooms has an asking price of £4.6 million.

According to literature marketing the Albany Lions Hotel, Mr Gulzar “is now slowly withdrawing from the hotel market to concentrate his efforts on restoring Eastbourne Pier back to its former glory as well as Hastings Pier”.
