Description
Loch Hart Guest House is an extremely well run business that has been owned by the current proprietors for 8 years. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the tourist trade. The guest house trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 5 out 5 on trip advisor, ranked no 1 in the area and being rated 4 stars by STB. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.lochhartguesthouse.co.uk. It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its excellent location within easy commuting to Aberdeen City. Loch Hart Guest House offers excellent accommodation for both guests and owners.

Situation
Inverurie is a Royal Burgh and town in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, about 16 miles North West of Aberdeen on the A96 road and is served by Inverurie railway station on the Aberdeen to Inverness Line. The nearest airport is Aberdeen Airport at Dyce. Loch Hart Guest House sits conveniently within a country setting in Lethenty Mills just outside Inverurie.

Building Internal
Loch Hart Guest House is a traditionally built detached property set over two levels. The current vendors have recently renovated and extended the property to give additional letting rooms and spacious owners accommodations. The main entrance is from the front which in turn leads into a well presented reception hallway. The hallway is tastefully decorated and gives access to all areas private and public. The property is split into two distinct parts, with both the guest house and owner’s house benefiting from their own entrances. Internally there is a lockable door giving owner access to the letting accommodations. This in turn gives potential to extend the letting accommodations.

Letting Accommodation
The entrance to the guest house is via separate door to the side of the property off the front driveway. The entrance leads into a bright and modern reception hallway with reception desk. To the right on entering you will find the guest breakfasting room. The breakfast room is well presented and furnished with wooden tables and chairs. The breakfast room has seating for 8 guests, a servery counter along with chiller and flat screen TV. Also located on the ground floor of the guest house you will find an office/laundry.

Room tariffs range from £72 prpn including breakfast.

Owners Accommodation

The main entrance is from the front, which leads into an entrance vestibule. The vestibule leads onto the main hallway, which in turn gives access to all areas. On the ground floor you will find a large lounge with a large front double glazed window offering views over the front gardens and countryside beyond. From the lounge you follow through a set of timber French doors which lead to the open plan dining room and large kitchen. The ding room and kitchen have been designed to offer excellent family living and entertaining. The kitchen comes fully equipped with wall and floor cupboards, along with integrated appliances. In the middle of the kitchen is a large island unit with electric hob and extractor. The island unit also benefits from a breakfast bar and additional cupboard space.
