Lumme! Reader Linda informs me that the Forbury Hotel in Reading has gone into administration!
'Wassat gorra do with Thanet?' I hear you ask. Well, be patient and I'll reveal all. The Forbury was opened with many a trump in 2006. Described as 'Reading's poshest hotel' (not hard) and the home of Daniel Galmiche's (Who he? - Ed.) fine dining restaurant Eden, the Forbury was created by parent company Waterbridge, none other than the owners of Margate's very own car-park-cum-charcoal-factory Dreamland!
The administrators have now been called in, and the local goss is that, you've guessed it, the development will now be transformed into 'boutique' apartments!
