Full description

Tenure: Freehold


The Newton Hotel is a fine mansion house, in the Scots Baronial style, set in around 21 acres of its own grounds. The original property dates from circa 1872 and in the intervening years the property has been significantly extended to provide a total of 63 bedrooms (including 7 new courtyard bedrooms which will boost revenue) and the extensive range of conference and function facilities with supporting meeting rooms, bars and restaurants.

The hotel attracts custom from a wide locality as well as enjoying regular tourist and holiday custom. With the proximity of Inverness Airport (and Inverness) the Newton Hotel reaps spin off from these other sources of business. The hotel is conveniently accessible, via its private driveway, from the main Inverness-Aberdeen road

through Nairn and the Newton enjoys open views to the front over its own fields and paddocks giving it the appeal of a country house hotel.

Nairn is a busy town, a few miles to the east of Inverness, which has fine stretches of sandy beaches looking out over the Moray Firth to the Black Isle and Easter Ross beyond. The consistently fine weather enjoyed along the stretch of coast contributes to the property and popularity of the town.

With its championship standard golf course, excellent beaches, fishing, sailing and shooting readily available in the area Nairn has long been acknowledged as one of premier holiday destinations in the North of Scotland. The much improved road network allowing easy access to the City of Inverness, and other centres, has also increased the popularity of Nairn with new housing developments attractive to many families working in the Inverness area.

The Newton Hotel is currently owned by a London based investment and property company who acquired the Newton hotel in August 2005 as part of a major investment in Scotland and the north of England. With a consolidation of their property portfolio a decision has been made to sell the Newton Hotel. Newton Hotel trades year round and is run entirely under management.
The hotel has developed a reputation for its conference and function facilities used by the local community and commercial businesses and as a tourist base.
