Since purchasing the hotel in 2010 a lot of time and effort has been spent in developing and establishing the business into one of the finest in the area, with guests driving from miles around to sample its culinary delights. Renowned for its food offerings, the hotel uses only the best of locally sourced produce such as beef, lamb, fish and dairy products which ensures its guests return time after time.
The turnover has greatly increased over the years as a result of many things including the attention to detail, home from home atmosphere, welcoming reception and overall experience that the hotel offers which has resulted in nearly 50% repeat business. Social media is also a big part of the businesses growth with many tourists, professionals and in particular outdoor sporting enthusiasts booking via these methods.
The hotel trades with a 3 star accolade from Visit Scotland and although trades very well offers huge potential to take further utilising the size of the overall plot in more detail and expanding on not just the main hotel but within the 12 acres. Options such as eco lodges, self-catering, stables and residential developments have all been considered ready to be explored further as well as internal ideas such as expansion of the kitchen into an extension which would allow for the owners to cater for more covers and make it ideal for a chef operator looking to stamp there mark.
In terms of the local, passing and repeat business it is supported very well and during the summer months House O Hill Hotel is recommended by many other local businesses in the surrounding area such as B&B’s, self-catering and Glentrool Caravan Park as the place to wine and dine. The hotel fully caters for the outdoor enthusiast due to its superb location at the Southern Upland Way and the 7 Stanes Trails.
In order to fully appreciate what is on offer a viewing of this fine hotel would be recommended.
