The Carnegie Lodge Hotel is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors for 10 years. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor's impending wish to retire from the tourist trade. The business trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of awards it currently holds such as achieving 4.5 out 5 on trip advisor and being ranked number 1 hotel in the area. It also benefits from a good mix of tourists and local customers. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.carnegiehotel.co.uk.
