Glenartney is an immaculate, family run, boutique style guest house in the centre of Brodick with ten letting rooms. Built in the 1920s, the guest house retains a number of original features and has been sympathetically decorated to a very high standard. As a lifestyle choice, the current owners are trading on a seasonal basis – from March through till October – with excellent occupancy rates for the trading months. With Glenartney’s existing reputation, and the consistently strong demand and continuing popularity of Arran as a visitor destination, the new owners would have the potential to expand on the current offering and grow the business further.
Accommodation on the ground floor comprises entrance vestibule, reception, two lounges, dining room, office, linen room, commercial kitchen, dry store, kitchen preparation room, three ensuite letting bedrooms and one additional letting room with a private bathroom. On the upper floor via the front stairway there are six ensuite letting rooms and a guest bathroom. Via the rear stairway there are two bedrooms with a shared bathroom currently used as private accommodation.
To the rear of the main building, the outbuildings comprise of a laundry room, log store, workshop, guest drying room/bike store and a one bedroom unit with bathroom.
The entrance brings you into a cosy vestibule with a welcoming reception hallway immediately facing.
Glenartney has generous relaxing lounge areas, with a contemporary bay windowed lounge enjoying views of the Arran hills off the hallway, and a further open plan lounge/seating area towards the rear. Off the rear lounge, there is a small bar which is currently not in use. This could be reinstated with the appropriate licensing in place.
The large dining room is at the back of the property and again is very spacious and decorated in a modern minimalist style whilst offering a cosy and welcoming environment.
The kitchen/prep room/dry store and linen room are spacious and well presented, offering new owners scope to appreciate the ‘back of house’ capacity.
On the ground floor, there are two ensuite bedrooms to the front, Rosa and Imacher. Sannox is another ensuite bedroom to the side with a view of Goatfell. Pladda, to the rear, is the fourth ground floor bedroom with its own private bathroom.
On the upper floor, enjoying the wonderful views towards Goatfell, Brodick Bay and the hills beyond, there are four ensuite bedrooms, Catacol, Easdail, Laggan and Cladach. Completing the letting accommodation are two further ensuite bedrooms, Iorsa and Tanna. Additionally on this floor are two large store cupboards and a guest bathroom.
There are two other bedrooms, used by the current owners for private accommodation, accessed by the rear stairway. These rooms share a large bathroom at this level.
To the rear of the plot, the laundry room, workshop, drying room and log store provide useful facilities in the running of the guest house. With some refurbishment, the one bedroom unit with bathroom could provide further accommodation or an additional revenue stream.
With the stunning aspect, immaculate presentation and extensive outbuildings, it is clear that Glenartney can continue to operate as a highly regarded guest house whilst providing the owners with an excellent return. In addition, there are numerous possibilities for the new owners to grow the business further which include, extending to all year round bookings, becoming a restaurant with rooms destination, or hosting small weddings/functions. The property could also be converted into self-catering or residential accommodation with the appropriate permissions.
