Theresa May was greeted in Grimsby at the Humber Royal Hotel when the Tory North East Lincolnshire Council group became the governing administration in 2019.
It was the same year that the Grimsby Telegraph Heart of Your Community Awards were held at the Humber Royal.
Kevin Clifton and Stacey Dooley were also greeted shortly after winning the 2018 Strictly Championship.
The hotel has also hosted comic book conventions and guest speakers, including BBC Radio Four presenter James Naughtie.
Thousands of school children enjoyed their Prom Nights at this luxury venue, which also hosted sports dinners, with guests including former England manager Kevin Keegan and Harry Redknapp.
The lottery winners were also announced there by Camelot.
Almost 10 years ago there were controversial hotel expansion plans that were widely criticized by residents living nearby.
It was sold to a private buyer for an undisclosed price, after being marketed on behalf of Downing LLP by hotel industry specialist Colliers.
The Links and Fairway Suites are located on the first floor, and on the ground floor is the Humber Suite and the Royal Terrace which combine to form the Royal Suite.
Video conferencing, free Wi-Fi, and flat-screen TVs are available, and the Humber Suite has a large screen and ceiling-mounted projector with built-in sound system.
The four-star hotel was closed for more than six months during the lockdown.
The freehold hotel sits on 2.7 acres, and Colliers’ senior surveyor Robert Smithson said the site’s substantial size and location in a predominantly residential area next to the Grimsby Golf Club had prompted the interest from a variety of potential buyers.
“The Humber Royal’s prime location meant that it was of interest not only to hoteliers but also to residential developers and developers of facilities such as nursing homes,” he said.
“However, it will now continue to be run as a hotel under the management of the new owner, who is an experienced hotelier. Given its impressive range of reception suites and bar facilities, it will undoubtedly continue to attract trade in local businesses as well as trade in events such as weddings.
