**360° Tour Available**
The iconic Albert Hotel, a historic Gourock landmark built in the 1830s, has undergone a substantial renovation, with the first floor available to rent as a guest house.
With the property providing four separate rooms to let, the subjects have a prime location on the main A770 road through and are close to Gourock railway station.
The ground floor is let as a restaurant with the first and second floors available as guest house opportunities for short and medium-term lets for contractors.
Access is from the garden on the street level, with an additional staircase in place as a second entrance/exit.
With gas and electricity in-situ and a fire alarm system, the Albert Hotel offers superb business development potential for the right owner-operator for all-year-round trade.
Gourock currently offers a limited provision for guest house services and as a result, we expect this to be very popular.
**Please note** This let does not include the annexe or the top floor, which are off-bounds but have the potential to lease also in the future.
Viewings can be arranged by appointment with Bowman Rebecchi.
