Rodel Hotel closed

Sad to hear that the hotel has closed

Of personal relevance as we got married on the pier in front of the hotel.
If anybody has a spare £800k it is apparently for sale.

Yes we heard the same, it is a shame. We were married in Harris too and spent a few nights in the hotel.
Also sailed Orla into the bay and spent a week on one of the moorings for our anniversary..
Must be a hard business to sustain, not a lot of local trade, quite a few property's for sale over there at the moment, some very cheap..
Badachro inn over in Gairloch is up for sale too, they all must be struggling..

Pretty much every hotel and inn on the west coast is up for sale..

Unless you are serving chicken in a basket to coffin dodger bus tours.

Nice idea, but I think trade is slipping back to the old ways. April to mid September, best in June to August. Nothing much doing October through the winter, except for a few places at the festive season. Patriotic holidays are fine, but the weather rarely is for more than a day or two!
RET fares help a bit, but don't realy solve the distance and weather problems.

In some respects not too bad a thing, but that's a wee bit selfish......?
