Business agent Christie + Co has been instructed to market the 109-bedroomed property, which has recently benefited from a £4m refurbishment programme. Offers in the region of £9m are being sought.

Opened in 1928, the hotel was designed to be an integral part of the Croydon Airport complex, London's first international city airport, and features a restaurant, two function bars and nine different event spaces, the largest holding up to 170 guests.

In its heyday it welcomed many famous guests, including King George VI, Amy Johnson and Charlie Chaplin.

Christie + Co director David Creamore, said: "With freehold opportunities becoming increasingly difficult to secure due to limited supply, this represents a fantastic opportunity to acquire a high-profile hotel in one of the South East's premier locations, which we believe will attract the attention of many branded operators."
