BULLI’S much-loved Denmark Hotel is up for sale again.
The heritage-listed building will be auctioned on June 24.
Owner, Sean Hannon, who reportedly has “run out of steam”, bought the former coaching inn and hotel in 2011 for $427,000 with a vision to transform the historic building into exclusive apartments.
After more than a decade and spending in excess of $100,000 on the project, which has been plagued in red tape from various government authorities, Mr Hannon has decided to sell the property.

Mr Hannon was given conditional approval by the Wollongong Local Planning Panel in December for the “adaptive re-use of listed former Denmark Hotel as three residential apartments with associated parking and site works including vehicular access via the Miner’s Cottage site”.
Selling agent, Peter Seeto from Cabmon Property said Mr Hannon had been working with Wollongong City Council to redevelop the block as three town houses, one on the top level, and two at ground level, with parking and greenspace, while maintaining its historic charm and escarpment view beyond the Bulli Showground.
Mr Seeto said due to the property’s condition, inspections are via appointment only.
