The owners of an historic hotel in Exeter destroyed by a huge fire in 2016 have announced the site is up for sale.
The Andrew Brownsword Hotels group say The Royal Clarence Hotel has undergone "significant" restoration work since the devastating fire.
Owner, Andrew Brownsword, said he is "deeply saddened" to announce plans for the sale but conceded his group is "unable to deliver a new hotel".
Mr Brownsword added the decision had been "heart-breaking" but said selling the site "is the only way".
Following the fire three years ago, Andrew Brownsword spoke to ITV News about his shock and horror saying: "We were devastated. Absolutely devastated".
In the same interview in 2016, Mr Brownsword said he would aim "to ensure the renovation creates a new history to be proud of".
In July 2017, plans for the restoration were revealed - including efforts to include the original period features.
