Colliers International has put the Berkshire hotel up for sale with a guide price of £36m (€41m). This price will only cover half of its borrowings of £72m from Michael Fingleton's failed building society.

A company controlled by Bernard Costello, a builder, and the late Liam Maye, bought the hotel in 2006 for £50m. KPMG was appointed as administrator to the company behind the hotel in March.
