Bruce and Co. are pleased to offer for sale The Queens Hotel, situated in the village of Drumore on the west coast of Scotland. The Queens Hotel was purchased by our clients over 6 years ago during which time it has been trading successfully and has been placed on the market by our clients due to their impending retirement. The property has been very carefully maintained throughout their ownership and is presented in walk in condition with no work required before new owners could commence immediate trading. The business has established an excellent base of loyal clientele from local residents and although the business forms an important part of the local community it also attracts custom due to its costal location. The business trades currently with wet sales/food sales and guest accommodation and although it boasts good trading figures it has further potential to increase turnover should new owners adopt a far more vigorous marketing campaign with the introduction of online advertising.
The village of Drummore is situated in the south west of Scotland, overlooking Luce Bay at the southern end of the Rhins of Galloway. The Queens Hotel is conveniently positioned in the heart of the village, opposite Drummore Stores, and local school. As well as the constant local trade, many tourists are drawn to the area to enjoy the magnificent scenery, unspoilt coastline and sandy beaches. The area is popular with families, birdwatchers, cyclists, walkers, sea anglers and golfers. The Mull of Galloway is around five miles away and has its own lighthouse, RSPB nature reserve and visitor centre, with views across to the Isle of Man, Cumbrian coastline, and Ireland - a ferry ride away from Cairnryan.
The Queens Hotel is a traditional stone-built property, dating back to the 19th Century, with accommodation on the first and second floor levels. Entry is from the front of the building leading into a reception hall from which the public bar and dining room can be reached.

There is also a small lounge bar with its own bar counter and is furnished with tables and chairs. On the opposite side of the reception hall is the dining room which can comfortably cater for up to 24 covers.
