Situation
The Carrutherstown Hotel is a short drive from both Dumfries and Gretna located just moments away from the busy A75, the hotel can be easily seen by people travelling both East to the M74/M6 and West to Stranraer. Situated within a small village the hotel is at the heart of the local community.

Business
The Carrutherstown Hotel is an extremely busy business that has been run by the current proprietors for a number of years. The hotel has been placed on the market due to the current proprietors impending retirement. The hotel trades throughout the year from a good mix of accommodation, food and wet sales. Marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.carrutherstownhotel.co.uk and the business benefits greatly from word of mouth and an enviable local reputation. It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its location near both Dumfries and Gretna. Many of the visitors include golfers and outdoor enthusiasts and it also plays an integral role in the local community as many locals use it for meetings and dinners etc. Although the hotel is trading extremely successfully, it still has potential to grow income further.


Building Internal
The Carrutherstown Hotel has become an extremely well presented hotel surrounded by rolling countryside with magnificent views from every side. Presented to superb specifications throughout, this well maintained two storey freehold property provides outstanding business accommodation to both the ground and first floor.

Public Areas
The main bar area is very much at the heart of the public areas, comfortably furnished with an array of tables and seating including both fixed and flexible seating options. From the bar area you can access the comfortable outdoor seating area. There is also a pool table which can be moved to create more space or a dance floor area.

Beyond the main bar area is the popular dining room catering for approx 26 covers. This room is very popular with meetings and clubs. To the other side of the bar area is the breakfast room which was previously used as a function room with its own dance floor. This area could easily be converted back to a full function room as the bar is still in place.

Service Areas
As expected with a hotel the style and size of the Carrutherstown Hotel, there are extensive service areas including a well equipped large commercial kitchen with dish wash area and freezer room. Other service areas include laundry, cellar and manager's office. Ladies and gents toilets are well appointed off the public areas.

Letting Accommodation
