The Crusoe Hotel’s 16 letting bedrooms are all said to offer views across the Firth of Forth.

A HOTEL in the East Neuk of Fife has come on to the books of property firm Cornerstone Business Agents.

The Crusoe Hotel sits on the harbour in the village of Lower Largo, which is the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk on whose experiences Daniel Defoe is said to have based Robinson Crusoe. Selkirk’s footprint is encased in a floor tile inside the property.

As well as references to the classic tale throughout the property, the Crusoe Hotel is also said to offer “fantastic views” across the Firth of Forth.

The property comprises 16 letting bedrooms – all of which offer sea views – as well as two bars, a reception/meeting room and the Castaway restaurant.

The business, which has been operated by the current owners for the last 15 years, is said to generate “consistent and strong turnover”, offering prospective operators the opportunity to build upon its success.

“Arguably, the Crusoe Hotel has one of the most dramatic and striking trading locations in Scotland, with the hotel perched on the harbour wall with fantastic views across the Firth of Forth,” said the selling agent.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for new proprietors to acquire a well-performing business with obvious potential to increase further.”

Offers in excess of £895,000 are being sought for the hotel.
