Zara Continental is also a 20 minute drive away from Lockerbie Train Station and 30 minutes away from Carlisle airport.
The Zara Continental with restaurant, bar and lounge was a smoke free hotel which offered free wifi, room service, flat screen TVs with digital channels, and other amenities such as coffee makers, electric kettles and free toiletries. Flexible owner’s accommodation of four double bedrooms, lounge, bathroom, and fitted kitchen which could also be used to increase the amount of letting rooms or staff accommodation. This is a great investment opportunity to be reopened into a vibrant hotel and restaurant serving the local community and tourists alike.
Traditionally a B&B that did provide an all day restaurant with extensive Indian menu with bar snug area and games area. The turnover was in excess of £200k pa but with added marketing and social media exposure, this opportunity has great potential, especially as there is also an empty retail unit with a double frontage which could be rented out to a local business.

The Zara Continental is a substantial detached building situated in a prominent location on the high street of this busy town of Langholm, with a traditional stone built façade with a slated tiled roof. This vibrant tourist town attracts a lot of walkers and ramblers, who come to visit the various walking areas and hills within the valley of the River Esk, as well as a very busy passing trade with tourists visiting the burgh of Dumfries and Galloway.
The Zara Continental is divided into three areas on three levels but are all connected internally. Entering through the main PVC double glazed door leads into the pool room, bar /reception area, then into the restaurant with timber tables with the ability to provide 50 covers.
