New lease of life awaits hotel

The Glendaruel Hotel closed its doors in 2009

OPERATORS looking for a renovation project may be interested in the Glendaruel Hotel, in the village of Clachan of Glendaruel, Argyll.

Tourists and walkers are said to have frequented the coaching inn, which dates back to the 17th century, before it closed in 2009.

Since then the owners have undertaken “basic remedial works”, but prospective purchasers will require “significant finance and development costs” to renovate the hotel, said Cornerstone Business Agents.

Inside, the hotel comprises three public areas (including one said to be suitable for restaurant use), public bar with separate entrance, and two kitchens. On the first floor are two partially fitted bathrooms and eight potential letting bedrooms.

Cornerstone is seeking £135,000 for the freehold, which includes a one bedroom cottage located on the hotel grounds.
