First-time buyers Nick Evans and Carol Lincoln are the new owners of the Castle hotel, a three-star property in the centre of the market town of Llandovery in Carmarthenshire.
The Grade II-listed building - which is around 400 years old and has historical links with Lord Nelson and writer George Borrow - fronts the A40 ‘gateway to West Wales' road on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Along with 23 bedrooms, the hotel offers a lounge seating area, a 60-seat bar, a 56-seat restaurant and a breakfast/function room with bar.
To the rear there is a paved terrace, a lawned garden and a mobile home used to accommodate staff.
The spacious five-bedroom owners' accommodation is arranged over the hotel's ground, first, second and attic floors.
The Bristol office of Christie + Co sold the freehold off a guide price of £895,000 on behalf of Lloyd and Holly Thomas
