A hotel in Alderney, which has been closed for nearly four years, has been bought by Le Huret Group.
The company, which run a chain of supermarkets in the island, say they bought the former Belle Vue Hotel to invest in the community.
But they say the building won't be reopened as a hotel.
Sadly while the island’s air links remain so inadequate there is no economic reason to reopen the Belle Vue as a hotel.
Nonetheless, Le Huret Group has a history of investing in Alderney and bringing much valued modern facilities to the island.
Over the next few months the company will be finalising plans for the Belle Vue, in order to restore its position in the heart of the community and bring new amenities to the island.
