Chance to snap up historic hotel

Ayrshire inn offers scope for expansion

OPERATORS seeking to make a move into Ayrshire might be interested in a historic hotel which has come onto the market.

Dating from 1875, the Kirkton Inn is located in the village of Dalrymple, two miles from the A77 and six miles south of Ayr, and is said to benefit from its proximity to both the coast and ‘Burns country’.
The property, which has undergone various extensions over the years, comprises 12 bedrooms (eight of which have been used for letting), a public bar, lounge bar, breakfast room, dining room, and service areas including kitchen, toilets and storage areas.

The hotel previously traded as a very successful business.

Outside there is a car park to the rear, as well as a beer garden and children’s play area.
Currently closed, the hotel previously traded as a “very successful business, enjoying an excellent reputation for food and accommodation”, according to Cornerstone Business Agents, which is marketing the Kirkton Inn on behalf of Red Oak Taverns.
“The availability of the Kirkton Inn is an excellent opportunity for a motivated owner to acquire a substantial hotel property located in a desirable Ayrshire location,” said Cornerstone director Barry McNeil.
“The business had latterly been leased out by our clients but the availability of the property represents an excellent opportunity for a purchaser to acquire substantial hotel premises in an excellent trading location.”
The Kirkton Inn is on the market with a guide price of £245,000 plus VAT for the freehold.
