Dorset hotel on the market for the first time in over 30 years

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is pleased to bring to the market, The Heights Hotel in Portland, Dorset.


Situated in an elevated position in one of Dorset's most stunning locations, The Heights Hotel boasts breath-taking panoramic views over the Dorset coast. The hotel is just a short drive from Portland’s main village, which has an array of shops, restaurants and pubs, and is popular with locals, as well as leisure and corporate guests.

The property features 54 comfortable ensuite bedrooms, and several dining options including the Bistro and The View Café, along with an extensive seletion of function rooms and meeting facilities. Planning consent has already been granted to add 16 letting bedrooms by converting some of the lesser used parts of the hotel.

The business has been owned by Paul Wogman for over 30 years, who comments, “I loved the hotel when I acquired it out of receivership 31 years ago and I love it to this day; I am only selling it because I am planning my retirement. I have a wonderful team of colleagues who help me to run and maintain it and I treat them as if they were a part of my family.”

This is a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to acquire a successful hotel in a fantastic Dorset location.

Stephen Champion, Director at Christie & Co who is handling the sale, comments, “The Heights is one of the most prominent hotels in the area and trades extremely successfully. The hotel is likely to appeal to existing hotel operators who will want to take on the business as a going concern, and take advantage of the numerous upside opportunities such as creating more letting rooms to further expand on the existing business.”
