    Default Spaldrick Hotel, Isle of Man - April 2019


    I don't know much about this history of this place but it's a former hotel with stunning views, the building is now sadly rotting away with fungus growing everywhere. Plans to demolish the building and replace it with a care home have recently been refused.

    Looks like a nice hotel at one time. It's situated in a nice location.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Great views from that.
    I wonder why refusal was given for conversion? Perhaps the building is of historic importance??

    The corridor - the fungus (Jews Ear) looks like it will bite feet lol!
    Please tell me that wasn't garages backing directly onto the kitchens?

    Interesting location that. Definitely worthy of a report.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Full of meaty goodness.

    If you go to her website "Forgotten Isle" she has over 90+ photos of this hotel and the photos tell a much better story.

    Will do.
    I often have a nosey around folks pages but lately am distracted at this end with a local community center and unraveling it's disorganised archives - I'm in heaven!
