Bruce and Co. are pleased to offer for sale The Dornie Hotel, a popular and very busy hotel situated in the village of Dornie, Ross-shire. The Dornie Hotel was purchased by our clients over 15 years ago during which time it has been trading successfully. The property has been very carefully maintained by our clients throughout their ownership and is presented in true walk in condition with no work required before new owners could commence immediate trading. The business has established an excellent base of loyal clientèle from local residents and forms an integral part of the local community but the majority of business comes from tourists visiting the area. Our clients advise us that income is derived from wet sales, dry sales and letting accommodation. Although trading well, The Dornie Hotel still has potential to grow as currently very little marketing is done. With over 900,000 tourists on average visiting the area per year this would increase turnover.
The Dornie Hotel is set on the shores of Loch Long in Dornie on the west coast of Scotland. The property is in an outstanding location with stunning views to Loch Duich, Loch Alsh, Eilean Donan Castle and to the shores of Loch Long, a recently designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The west coast is famous for its unique coastline of sheltered bays, wide sandy beaches and beautiful island views with a backdrop of dramatic mountain peaks. This area has long been a popular tourist destination with its easy access to Skye and Plockton and its famous landmarks of Eilean Donan Castle and the Five Sisters of Kintail and yet, just a short distance away from the busy tourist centres, the countryside offers a haven of peace where native wildlife and flora are plentiful and breathtaking views are the norm.
The business premises occupy an impressive 2 storey semi detached property located at the main car parking area in Dornie. Entrance to the business is at the front of the property with the main bar area located at the left hand side with pool room and the restaurant area to the right hand side. The bar area is traditionally furnished with covers for 30 with wooden tables and chairs and the restaurant is designed with more of a modern contemporary finish and benefits from covers for 30. The Dornie Hotel also benefits hugely from a beer garden located to the front which overlooks the Loch and Cuillin hills. The beer garden and outside areas are well presented offering a pleasant outdoor dining environment. A fully equipped kitchen is located to the rear of the property and the business has plenty of preparation and storage areas.
The Dornie Hotel features 11 letting bedrooms, 8 of which are en-suite. The rooms are located on the upper level and are accessed via the reception hallway. The rooms are configured with a mixture of single, twin, double and family rooms which allow our clients to offer flexibility for various party sizes.
The owner's accommodation is located on the second floor of the business premises. It consists of a large living area with stunning views, 2 double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom with shower over bath and has its own kitchen. The accommodation is well presented and accommodation of this size is exceptionally rare in a business such as this.
Guests at The Dornie Hotel also have the benefit of a guests lounge located to the right hand side and towards the front of the property offering beautiful views. The hotel also benefits from a private bar. Currently this area is not being fully utilised but with a little thought and marketing this could be another way to increase turnover. Also at the hotel are 3 additional well sized rooms which were previously used as letting bedrooms. Currently one is used as an office, and the other two are not in use. This is another area, which with minimal renovation/upgrading.
