One of Newcastle's landmark buildings The Grand Hotel has been listed for sale for the first time in 30 years.

Built in the late 1800s, it has historical links to the city’s past and a commanding presence on the corner of Church and Bolton streets.

Allan Kentwell, of PRDnationwide Newcastle, is marketing the well-known pub through an expressions of interest campaign and was expecting “widespread interest”.

“It’s been almost 130 years since it first opened its doors and it remains one of the city’s most impressive and historically significant hotels,” Mr Kentwell said.

“Having undergone a couple of sympathetic renovations, the interior has remained remarkably intact and its stunning filigree balcony was replaced in 2012 after a long approval process with various authorities, including Heritage NSW.”
