Description Bruce and Co. Are delighted to present to the market, Morris's Hotel, a long established restaurant and pub positioned in idyllic surroundings in Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 14 years and has reluctantly been placed on the market due to family commitments. Morris's Hotel enjoys a generous turnover and provides the owners with an excellent source of income which is derived from revenue generated through very strong wet sales in the public bar as well as food sales and with 2 letting rooms gives strong profit all round. Morris's Hotel receives exemplary feedback from customers and benefits from extremely positive reviews from both locals and visitors to the village. Although the business is trading with good profit at present we believe that income could be increased with a little marketing as very little is currently done.
