    Surpries to see this hasn't been done already (although I'm sure someone will pop up tosay it has)


    A little history stolen from the news

    The seaside hotel where Ian Fleming wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is up for sale for an expected £8 million.


    The Lansdowne Hotel, formerly the Dudley Hotel, has welcomed illustrious guests such as Sir Winston Churchill and Noel Coward.


    But in recent years the once illustrious venue - in Lansdowne Place, Hove - has fallen into disrepair, closing in January 2013 after going into administration with debts of £9 million.


    A buyer could not be found for the poorly maintained hotel and administrator KPMG said it was not viable to maintain as a hotel, citing the location and economic climate.


    I hate Brighton... But this was something else - the front of the hotel is very attractive, originally 6 townhouses, and still a very imposing, grand building.
