£1.25 m pricetag for Moffat hotel

A MAJOR Moffat hotel has been put up for sale. Moffat House Hotel is on the market, asking for offers of over £1.25 million.

The 21 bedroom, country mansion hotel is set in two acres of grounds.

It was originally built for the second Earl of Hopetoun in the 1790s.

The house comprised a main block with two wings that was transformed into a hotel in 1950, which of late has proven to be a successful wed- ding and event venue.

The sale also includes a two bedroom cottage located on site.

Steven Fyfe, from Savills who are managing the sale, said: “After ten years of ownership this is a genuine retirement sale and provides an opportunity to acquire a successful business and attractive period property at a time when Scot- land’s hotels and tourism industry continues to prosper.”

The purchaser will be required to comply with the relevant TUPE legislation in respect of present employees, transferring employment to the new owners.

Meanwhile, in Lockerbie, the Dryfesdale Country House Hotel is still on the market for £2.3 million.
