    Default The Ivy Hotel Wroughton November 2016


    A charming not so little hotel in the village of Wroughton,that started out as Bed&Breakfast concern and went on to become rather large with 32 rooms.It went into administration in 2013 and has first suffered from squatters living there during 2014 to early 2015,then having the local morons go in and trash the place.I spent a few Saturdays in here last summer before the new owner fenced it off in readyness for demo.Macarthy Stone have bought it to build about 30 luxury flats on..I would rather it had become a Toby Carvery!
    The front

    Four Poster suite used mainly for weddings

    This used to be a nice place to sit have a beer in..the locals have also enjoyed it here too

    How it used to look

    Let us check in at Reception

    Then we go for beer?How she used to be..

    And how the vermin treated her..

    Lovely dining room

    And last summer

    Kitchen..pretty big

    Many rooms escaped the yobbos

    Some entertainment left by the squatters

    1980`S extension

    A very overgrown Ridgeway Hall,used for weddings

    Been to a few weddings here myself

    And that was The Ivy Hotel folks..I shall miss having a beer here

    Demo has begun..

    Nice photographs, I like how you show after and before photos. I prefer the before photos. Does look like you could enjoy a nice cool beer in the sun lounge. A shame its going this way.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
