Chance for growth at granite city hotel

Aberdeen business offers “clear scope” for development

NEW owner is sought for an Aberdeen hotel designed by one of the city’s most famous architects.

The Highland Hotel, on Crown Street, was designed by renowned Aberdeen architect Archibald Simpson.

The street intersects with the granite city’s main retail strip on Union Street and is a five minute walk from both the railway station and Union Square shopping centre.

The property is said to be in good condition and consists of four interlinked townhouses with a large extension to the rear.

Set over four storeys, the hotel has 27 double rooms, 14 single rooms and eight twin rooms, all of which are en suite.

A traditionally-decorated bar is located on the lower ground floor, alongside a 34-cover dining room, fully-fitted commercial kitchen and games room with pool table.

The business’s reception, lounge and office are on the ground floor, while externally the property has a terrace that can be used as a beer garden, and a car park with space for nine vehicles.

Kevin Hunter of CDLH said the property offers a “desirable heritable hotel opportunity”.

He added: “The property is arranged within attractive interconnected townhouse buildings with licensed accommodation and commercial kitchen, providing clear scope to develop a first class licensed hotel business.

“The location is at the heart of Aberdeen city centre, making this an ideal trading location for business and leisure-related custom.”

CDLH is marketing the freehold of the hotel for offers over £550,000, including fixtures and fittings.
