Welcome to the prestigious Maryfield House Hotel, a distinguished landmark nestled in a prime location on the Isle of Bressay. Situated just a short ferry ride from Lerwick on Mainland Shetland, this magnificent solid stone property, dating back to the 1850s, commands attention to its substantial plot. This unique opportunity presents an exceptional chance for individuals seeking a lifestyle change in a picturesque locale or investors looking to capitalise on a lucrative opportunity, blending heritage charm with limitless potential.

Testament to the current owners they have built a very successful business with exceptional reviews for both the accommodation aspect of the business welcoming guests from across the world, but also for the very popular food and beverage side of the business. The hotel's restaurant and lounge have become iconic destinations beloved by locals and visitors alike. Catering in the restaurant and lounge for meals, family gatherings, and events – The bar at Maryfield House Hotel is a cherished gathering place. From lively snooker and darts nights to themed and celebration evenings honouring local traditions, it's where community spirit and good times come together in perfect harmony. The business also boasts one of a few licensed beer gardens in the whole of the Shetland Isles.

Currently, the ground floor accommodation is being utilised as public rooms, the whisky snug, formal dining room, bar lounge, public bar, and games room. There are two sets of public toilets accessed from the bar and lounge. Back of house on the ground floor is the fully equipped industrial kitchen, bar cellar & storage room, and utility room. There are three doors for public access, the main door access to the front of the building, a second door to the side of the building giving access to the lounge, and the third to the rear of the property giving access to the bar.

The first-floor accommodation is currently set up as three guest rooms which are all en-suite, each room is spacious and boasts sea views. The second-floor accommodation is currently being utilised as staff quarters, office space, and storage. A partition wall has been erected at the top of the stairs to create privacy. This area has not yet been fully renovated, there are four large rooms and a spacious bathroom, and each room has a sea view. This floor has the potential to be converted into further guest bedrooms, or a self-contained apartment that could either be rented or stay as owner accommodation.

Externally the property sits on a substantial plot, with a garden area to the front and side and parking to the side and rear. It is possible to drive around the building as there is a staff entrance to the far side of the building for deliveries directly into the cellar and kitchen. There is also the possibility of adding additional 'clamping' style accommodation to side garden plot or erect a second dwelling house with appropriate planning consents.

The views from the property are breath-taking to the front, you look out from the gardens over the Bressay Sound towards Lerwick, and from the rear of the property, the views span inland across the island of Bressay.

Shetland, an archipelago comprising over a hundred islands located at the northernmost tip of Scotland, boasts a captivating blend of rugged landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture that draws visitors from across the globe. With its dramatic coastlines, diverse wildlife, and captivating festivals such as the world-famous Up Helly Aa Fire Festival, Shetland has become a must-visit destination for travellers seeking authentic experiences.

In recent years, the tourism industry in Shetland has experienced remarkable growth, with visitor numbers steadily increasing year on year. Additionally, Shetland's business landscape has seen notable expansion, with a thriving entrepreneurial spirit driving growth in sectors such as marine engineering, renewable energy, and creative industries. As the island's economy continues to diversify and evolve, the need for quality accommodation and services to support both tourists and businesses has become increasingly apparent, presenting exciting opportunities for investment and development. With its unique blend of natural beauty, cultural heritage, and entrepreneurial spirit, Shetland stands poised as a dynamic and welcoming destination for visitors and businesses alike.

The Maryfield House Hotel needs to be experienced to fully appreciate the value of this business and also what a versatile opportunity it presents. There are many options available for potential buyers – to continue to run the business in its current structure, to expand the available accommodation – run the restaurant and bar business but close the accommodation side – convert the full property into one large Air B&B style property – or with the correct planning convert to a residential property.
