Situation

The Ecclefechan Hotel occupies a prominent position in the heart of the popular Dumfries & Galloway village of Ecclefechan. Ecclefechan lies in the valley of the Mein Water, a tributary of the River Annan, 5 miles north of Annan and 8 miles north -west of the English border. The village sits just off the A74(M) motorway at junction 19 meaning links to Glasgow (77miles to the north-west), Edinburgh (79 miles to the north-east) and Carlisle (22 miles to the south- east) are all easily reachable by the road network. The village has its own primary school along with localised retail businesses and further hotels and guesthouses.  

The world-renowned “runaway wedding” village of Gretna Green is c. 11miles away.

 

The Property

 The hotel occupies a prominent location within the High Street of the village and is instantly recognisable due to its whitewashed façade. Occupying a substantial detached property, which dates back to the 1730’s, the business is split over 2 and 3 storeys with the public areas all on ground floor. To the rear of the hotel there is ample private parking and a large outbuilding/garage/storage.

The hotel is presented well both internally and externally and has recently benefitted from 2 new boilers which were put in circa 2020.

 

Internal Details

Accessed directly from the street into a hallway, giving access to all public areas, with a staircase leading to the upper floors and letting bedrooms.

 

Reception

Located to the right-hand side of the hallway this bright and traditionally fitted reception offers comfortable seating, open fireplace, reception desk and piano. Direct access into the dining room, kitchen, leading through to the toilets.

 

Dining Room

On a lower level the dining room leads through from the reception and offers covers for approximately 32, again fitted to a fairly traditional design with bright window formation to the high street.

 

Public Bar/Snug/games area

With separate access from the high street, these areas are also located internally from the hallway. This spacious offering has a snug bar, games area and public bar all within an          “L “ shaped layout, incorporating an open fireplace, pool table, flat screen television and wood burning stove. The bar servery is split between the two rooms with exposed stonework as a noticeable pleasant feature throughout. There is also access to the smoking area/ beer garden.

 

Letting Accommodation

Individually designed, the bedrooms are presented very well with ensuite facilities and located on the first and second floors. Many of the rooms benefit from traditional features such as wooden beams, exposed stone walls and have undergone complete refurbishment over the last couple of years.

 

Managers/Owners/Staff Accommodation

 The current owners have not stayed on site for some time with this area requiring complete fit out and decoration although the services are all in. Split over the first and second floors, the space offers good potential and comprises of 2 bedrooms, kitchen, lounge and bathroom.

 

External

To the rear of the hotel there is ample private parking as well as on street parking, with a large detached storage shed/garage, as well as a beer garden and smoking area. The land to the rear of the car park is not included within the sale and will be split from title. There is separate access to this land from the street so will not be through the car park. The land could be sold via separate negotiations.

 

Business

Having bought the business in 2005 the present owners have ran the business successfully as a family run operation and over the years have built up a good reputation within the village and in the surrounding areas. The hotel is run very much to suit the current owners’ requirements and it is thought that any new operator would be able to build on what is regarded as an already steady business, especially under a chef proprietor who could take advantage of the location and push things forward. Over the years the property has been sympathetically refurbished and is presented well throughout whilst retaining many of its traditional features. The hotel uses a number of booking sites including booking.com and trivago with a 4.5 star rating from Trip Advisor.  A viewing is strongly advised to appreciate exactly what is on offer and the potential it gives.
