Castle Mona on the Isle of Man has been auctioned off after its sale last year fell through.
The 98-bedroom hotel was sold to an Isle of Man-based property company yesterday for £1.2m.
However, last month owner the Sefton Group announced the sale had fallen through and the hotel was brought to auction "to secure the long-term future of the building".
The property has stood empty for more than a decade and has been on the market since 2011. Originally built for the 4th Duke of Atholl, John Murray, in 1804, the iconic property became a hotel in 1835.
It boasts leisure facilities including two nightclubs, a bowling alley and a ballroom, food, beverage and banqueting operations plus parking for 70 vehicles.
The Sefton Group bought Castle Mona for some £4m in 2007 with plans to turn it into a luxury boutique hotel, plans which were scuppered by the global banking crisis of 2008.
