The Stromness Hotel

The Pierhead, Stromness KW16 3AA
Number of Bedrooms: 42

The Stromness Hotel is a stunning and imposing building set in the heart of Stromness with breath-taking views overlooking the harbour. Located within a leisurely walk of the ferry terminal, this charming hotel was developed in the early 1900s. The business has a strong presence and is a popular destination location for many visitors during the main season (Easter to October). The business boasts many exceptional features and has greatly benefited from considerable inward investment over the past few years to include a new fire alarm system, newly appointed en-suites and improvements to general décor. The quality of fixtures and fittings within the rooms has also been a feature in bringing this iconic hotel into the modern era. The business is very well-presented and is in walk-in condition. The property boasts 42 letting bedrooms which is ideal to cater to the many coach operators and large groups visiting the Island. The function suite can accommodate around 120 people seated. The hotel has two bars which are defined by their own character. The Hamnavoe Lounge Bar is located on the first floor, enjoying views across the harbour and Scapa Flow and is where food is served to the many guests staying at the hotel. On the ground floor is the iconic Flattie Bar; a popular haunt with both locals and tourists alike due to its authentic atmosphere. The hotel has ample service areas to support the operation of this significant trading entity.

The Stromness hotel is a high-performing business generating an impressive level of turnover and producing a strong adjusted net profit. The hotel currently trades on a seasonal basis from Easter to October but has in the past traded year-round. The current owner manages the business at arm’s length leaving trusted staff to supervise the daily operation. Any new owner who played an active role in the business operation would surely help develop the business to the next level. The business has a sound reputation, enjoying a good level of repeat business, thus ensuring a consistently high occupancy level. Operating a popular range of fayre, catering to both tourists and the local community, the hotel is the venue for a number of festivals held in the town throughout the year. The owner takes great pride, with the assistance of the General Manager, in ensuring that guests receive a particularly warm and friendly welcome, maintaining the trading elements to a very high standard. Tourism is a key driver and the hotel benefits from many tour groups who visit the island from across the world. In addition, independent travelers include those who undertake water sports (kayaking and diving), fishing, walking holidays or partake in a more sedate excursion of the Highlands and Islands taking in the many scenic sites and historical features. Other visitors include ornithologists and naturalists who find an abundance of wildlife to keep them busy for an extended stay. The location of the business is such that it is easy to find for those who booked via the internet and the casual passer-by seeking accommodation / refreshment. The hotel is marketed through a number of portal websites and has a solid presence on the internet and through social media sources.
