Agents handling the sale of the defunct Inn at the Park in Aberdeen’s Ferryhill have set a closing date for bids.
Shepherd Chartered Surveyors is seeking offers in excess of £550,000 for the hotel and offers must be submitted no later than Tuesday 13th December at 12 noon.
Administrator Michael Reid, of Meston Reid and Co was appointed in October after bookings had slumped in the wake of the oil downturn.
Initially there were hopes that the hotel would remain open while a buyer was found although it shut its doors a few weeks later with its five remaining staff made redundant.
The collapse came as a number of popular hotels, bars and restaurants have either closed their doors or gone into administration in the Granite City.
The hotel near Duthie Park had been owned by G & T’s, which also owned the Glentanar Bar on Holburn Street which remains trading.
James Morrison, associate – commercial agency at Shepherd in Aberdeen, said the 7,489 sq ft property has attracted “much interest” and could be converted for residential use.
He said: “The Inn at the Park is ideally located within easy walking distance of the city centre and benefits from being located within a quiet residential area. As such, much interest has been generated in this unique opportunity.
“We also believe the building may lend itself to alternative uses, such as residential conversion.”
