Occupying a 18th century, three-storey property, the substantial hotel was fully restored by the owners in 1996 and comprises 11 en suite guest bedrooms, a brasserie and restaurant for a combined 54 covers, library, resident’s lounge, and popular public bar, The Royal. Additionally, the site provides two bedroom manager’s accommodation and a further four letting rooms are contained within Melville House, self catering accommodation situated opposite the main hotel building. The traditional hotel is well maintained and offers ample ancillary areas including a fully equipped commercial kitchen, walk in chiller and a dry store.
Externally, the property features a beer garden to the rear of the Royal Bar, with additional gardens situated to the rear of the conservatory dining room and private guest parking available on Melville Square, which sits adjacent to the hotel. Ideally located, The Royal Hotel sits in a prominent position in the village square, with Comrie itself on the main tourist route between Perth and Oban, creating ample opportunities for passing trade.
Alongside the high footfall through the village, the area itself is well known and draws visitors to the Perthshire countryside year round for walking, golfing, shooting, and fishing, with the River Earn and the River Tay nearby.
Stuart Drysdale, Director at Christie & Co, who is handling the sale comments, “The Royal Hotel offers a unique opportunity for either an experienced operator or family business to take on a well established, turnkey operation with ample scope to expand. Its ideal location in the stunning Perthshire countryside would be a draw for any potential buyer and we anticipate that this fantastic hotel will garner strong levels of interest.”
A new commercial lease will be offered, to be negotiated, and Christie & Co is seeking offers in excess of £95,000 for the leasehold interest.
