Re: Marine Hotel, Southerndown

No you are not mistaken. The (former) Marine Hotel which your ancestor moved to in 1853,is still there,but as a private residence.As you may know,it was opened in 1954 by Princess Margaret as "The Sunshine Home for Blind Babies but closed in the late 1970's.
Close by in Southerndown village is the former Dunraven Hotel which opened in 1890 but in 1948 became "Southerndown Home for The Blind & Elderly."It closed in 2009 and is still for sale.
