The iconic Albert Hotel, a historic Gourock landmark built in the 1830s, has undergone a substantial renovation to be transformed and converted into a guest house available to purchase.

With limited provision currently for hotel accommodation in Gourock, the Albert Hotel offers plenty of charm and opportunity to provide boutique-style accommodation in the heart of Gourock town centre.

There is further development potential in the annexe building at the rear of the property, with the scope to expand the outside public area, create further bedroom accommodation or create an owner’s accommodation and facilities.

The Albert Hotel also has a south/west facing beer garden which is unique within Gourock. The property’s prime location is on the main A770 road through and close to Gourock railway station.

For tourists, ferry services to Argyll and Bute are nearby, as-is Greenock Ocean Terminal, for the embarkation of cruise ships, as well as Kip Marina, for access to the beautiful sailing waters of the Clyde. 

The unique and iconic Gourock Outdoor Pool is also less than 10 minutes walk away.

Inverclyde has five great golf courses, all with stunning views – Gourock Golf Club, Greenock Golf Club, Port Glasgow Golf Club, Whinhill Golf Club and Kilmacolm Golf Club  – all renowned for their warm and friendly welcome.

The proposed Ardgowan Distillery visitor centre is due to begin its build in 2021 at nearby Inverkip, with Cardwell Garden Centre at Lunderston Bay beach another large draw for tourists. 

Businesses in Gourock include Amazon and CalMac Ferries headquarters, with the main Inverclyde Royal Hospital less than a mile away in the neighbouring town of Greenock.

These premises offer superb business development potential for the right owner-operator and offer excellent potential for all-year-round trade as well as a lifestyle opportunity for the owners.


Gourock is located approximately 28 miles west of Glasgow on Scotland's West Coast, with a residential population in excess of 10,000 persons and a core catchment population of approximately 270,000 persons, all within the authority of Inverclyde Council.

With a rich maritime heritage, Inverclyde is looking again to the River Clyde to support its future growth, with Greenock Ocean Terminal developing a new pontoon and visitor centre to support its 140,000 cruise liner passengers per annum, with Inverclyde seeing over 500,000 visitors per annum.


The property benefits from direct access onto the A770 linking to the M8 motorway, providing access to the national motorway network as well as the M74 motorway leading South and is 25 minutes drive from Glasgow International Airport.

The subject property is located adjacent to Gourock railway station, with regular train services to Glasgow and Gourock. CalMac and Western Ferries services to Argyll and Bute are in close proximity with bus and national cycle routes available.
