Girton House, Kingsway
Girton House, Kingsway
Viewed from the Western Lawns. The vacant plot to the right is the site of the former Sackville Hotel built in 1904 and a favourite haunt of celebrities during the 50s and 60s. The hotel lost its lustre during the 70s and 80s and was reduced from 5 stars to 3 even becoming temporary council accommodation during the 90s. New owners planned to return the hotel to its former glory and undertook a massive rebuild but unfortunately the roof collapsed in April 2006 and destabilised the building enough for the residents of Girton House to be evacuated. The structure was pulled down not long after.
