Dumfries hotel bought by expanding operator
Carrutherstown’s Hetland Hall Hotel has a new owner after being sold by specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co.
Set in 18 acres of private grounds, the 30-bed hotel is an attractive country house hotel specialising in providing a bespoke wedding service as well as being a popular venue for local residents.
Hetland Hall has been bought by RAD Hotels Group, which currently operates four other hotels in Scotland, and is keen to expand in the region.
Stuart Drysdale, Associate Director at Christie & Co is handling the sale of the hotel and says, “Hetland Hall Hotel presented a superb opportunity to develop an existing wedding and conference venue in a rural setting benefiting from excellent transport links.
“The previous owner, Lady Glen Hotels, has made a strategic sale in order to concentrate on its two existing central region properties. RAD Hotel Group has taken advantage of this as they are keen to expand their portfolio across Scotland with well-positioned hotels, generally focussing on the wedding market.
“Hetland Hall will now be refurbished and continue with its excellent reputation as a wedding venue.
“Good commercial hotels in this area of Scotland remain attractive as they offer buyers a varied income stream incorporating accommodation and food and beverage sales. Well-run businesses continue to attract interest and we anticipate this continuing into 2017.”
