Original boutique hotel for sale

Stirling’s Park Lodge Hotel on market for first time in 40 years

A STIRLING hotel which is described as one of Scotland’s original boutique hotels is up for sale for the first time in 40 years.

Occupying an historic Grade B-listed Georgian townhouse overlooking the city’s Kings Park, The Park Lodge Hotel is being sold by George and Anne Marquette, who plan to retire after four decades at the helm, during which time they are said to have established the hotel’s reputation for “fine dining and lavish functions”.

The property has been extended over the years and now comprises ten letting rooms, a large function suite, “ornate” restaurant and a lounge bar area. There’s also a walled garden to the rear providing an enclosed grassed area said to be ideal for private functions.

Peter Seymour, head of hotel and leisure at Graham & Sibbald, which is marketing The Park Lodge Hotel with a price tag of offers over £925,000, described the hotel as an “one of the original boutique hotels created by the vendors, who established a reputation for fine dining and lavish functions over their 40-year tenure at the helm”.

“The Park Lodge Hotel is an institution and as a highly decorative building offers a great opportunity for an experienced operator to re-establish a boutique hotel or private wedding venue within an affluent part of Stirling city centre,” he said.
