The Business
Having bought the hotel in 2006 the current owners have run it very much as a family business and during this time have established the hotel into one of the finest country house hotels in the area. Over the years the reputation has grown not just with the local community but with many of its guests that return to the hotel year after year as it does offer a welcoming environment and surrounding in which to relax and enjoy the best that Wigtownshire has to offer.
Creebridge House Hotel can also accommodate varying functions/ weddings and conferences with packages available to suit any requirement. With the hotels dedicated manager and full complement of staff, internally, these functions can accommodate 70 for a meal with a further 80 for the evening and on a larger scale by way of a marquee in the garden (120). Functions can also be held within the new external bar area during the summer months, utilising the extensive outside seating. This area did well for takeaways and worked extremely well during “lockdown”, which is something that is looking to be continued and offers another potential income stream for any new owner, going forward.
Throughout the year the hotel gains a lot of business through local word of mouth, repeat and passing trade however the website plays a big part in the day to day bookings.
Creebridge House Hotel is an ideal business for any discerning purchaser looking to get into this busy market place and run a family business which still offers scope for future growth and a viewing is strongly recommended.
