Unit 1 Royal Hotel, 13-17 E. Parade, Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear, NE26 1AP

The property comprises an established Victorian sea front hotel on Whitley Bay promenade.

The ground floor is split into two sections, the first is to be retained by the hotel operator and will comprise reception and dining areas.
