Auction of once legendary Berengaria Hotel tomorrow (video)

An auction is scheduled in Limassol on  Tuesday morning for the once majestic Berengaria Hotel in Prodromos which is being sold by the Bank of Cyprus.

The auction is just the latest twist for a hotel that once played host to titled guests before being abandoned and falling into ruin.

Bank of Cyprus has set a reserve price of  €2.360.000 for the 80 year old hotel. On sale will be the 80 room hotel and 26,520 square metres of land.

Named after Queen Berengaria, wife of Richard the Lionheart, the hotel was built in 1930 by the Kokkalos family.

Dubbed a crown jewel of Cyprus mountain tourism, it was at its most popular in the mid twentieth century  but closed in 1984 as sun and sea tourism took a heavy toll on mountain resorts.

Since then it has remained empty, generating its share of myths as various attempts to revive it floundered.

Mountain communities hope the sale and refurbishment of the Berengaria will help breathe new life in the area.
