Nairn hotel with strong links to movie legend Charlie Chaplin put up for sale for £4.5 million
A HOTEL in Nairn once used by film star Charlie Chaplin as a base for family holidays has been put up for sale.
The Newton Hotel is being marketed for prices of around £4.5 million. It is currently owned by a London-based investment and property company which acquired it in August 2005.
Well-known as a conference and banqueting venue, as well as a popular hotel for tourists, the Newton is an original Scots Baronial mansion house set in 21 acres of private grounds.
It has been extended to provide 63 bedrooms and eight conference and meeting rooms. It also has its own restaurant, lounge bar, lounges and the bistro.
Charlie Chaplin reportedly enjoyed the tranquillity of Nairn and the Highlands, becoming a regulator guest at the Newton Hotel in his later years.
Alistair Letham, a director at Colliers International, which is handling the sale, said: "It is trading at a steady level of turnover and good levels of profit. The Newton Hotel should be an exciting prospect for experienced hoteliers or for small groups looking to build their portfolio."
