        To be LET, with immediate possession

ALL that newly-erected MESSUAGE or TENEMENT, called the WATERLOO, or AMERICAN HOTEL, together with the DWELLING-HOUSE thereunto adjoining, formerly used as a Spirit Vaults, situate on the westwardly side of the great road and throughfare, leading from Burslem to Hanley, in the Staffordshire Potteries.

These Premises have been erected within the last three or four years. The Hotel contains on the ground floor, Commercial-room and large dining-room to the front; back parlour, roomy entrance, bar, from which there is a direct communication with spacious wine and ale cellars, an excellent kitchen, wash-house, also a large billiard room, fitted up in a suitable manner and detached from the house.

On the first floor is an elegant drawing room, and an excellent parlour for private parties, and the bed rooms are airy and commodious.

There is stabling for 12 or 15 horses.

The whole of the premises are finished in a most superior style, and possess every accommodation requisite for conducting business of the first respectability. The town of Burslem is rapidly improving, and the Hotel is situate in the centre of a district comprising a population of nearly seventy thousand inhabitants, which district is daily increasing in importance. There are coaches to and from London, Liverpool, Manchester, and Birmingham, which pass the Hotel daily.

The above premises might easily be converted into two excellent Messuages, one for an Inn and the other for a private boarding-house, the latter of which would be a great convenience for the numerous travellers, whose business leads them to this part of the country.

Any further information may be obtained (if by letter, post-paid,) on application at the Office of Mr J P HARDING, Solicitor, Overhouse, Burslem.
