About the business

TRADE SPACE Served by one bar, one area is being created over two levels. We are moving the current cellar to another area in order to create a large space over one floor. Outside is a courtyard area for enjoying a drink when the sun shines and also provides a facility for smokers. Upstairs is a large function room, traditionally decorated and popular for local parties and meetings. The function room is being fully redecorated as part of our investment. The kitchen is also on first floor level and will have a food hoist to serve the main bar. The hotel rooms are over two floors featuring 3 doubles, 2 singles and a twin. The rooms are not ensuite currently. Attached to the hotel is a large 4 bedroomed home over 2 floors with a small courtyard garden.
