A Blog called Pak Tea House recalls memories of the great hotel Bristol in Karachi - built by a Welshman in 1910 and soon famous under the Raj for its parties. In 1960 the owner's son sold it to the politician Rizvi Sahab who ran it with continuing fame until he 1994. Still standing, it is now a "home", though for what is unclear..
Well, we hadn't heard of this Hotel Bristol before – a B&B in Burry Port, South Wales, which has just come up for sale. It has 2 en-suite family rooms, 1 en-suite double room, a single room with shower. licensed bar, and beer garden, and 28-cover restaurant. It also has a 2-bedroom studio flat, which could be used for owner accommodation. "Rooms need some modernaisation"the ad says, but the public areas were modernised n 2007. It's on the market for £230,000. See BuyMyBusiness.co.uk
