This superb 43 guest bedroom hotel with full conference facilities and 50 cover restaurant is located at the heart of the vibrant Cumbrian coastal town of Barrow-In-Furness, it is ideally situated as guests are able to take advantage of all the many attractions the beautiful Lake district has to offer. Barrow-In-Furness is historically famous for itís industry, in particular the ship building industry. The town is currently enjoying a renaissance with huge investment in the area from the docks redevelopment scheme including a purpose built 8 million pound 400 berth marina and new technology park which will undoubtedly benefit a business of this nature. Barrow-In-Furness is reached easily and has superb road links, the A590 is the main road that links the town with nearby Ulverston providing further access to the M6 motorway and the wider UK motorway network. The A595 links the town with Whitehaven, Workington and eventually through to Carlisle. The town also has good rail links with Barrow-In-Furness railway station handling in excess of 500,000 passengers annually.

Business History

Meridian Business Sales are privileged to offer to the market this wonderful 43 guest bedroom freehold hotel that has been established by our client since 1993. The only reason this outstanding opportunity is being made available is so our client can take a well deserved retirement. Since establishing the business our client has and continues to invest considerably on the business premises to the point that they are in full walk in condition for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of a very respectable annual turnover of £422,035 with good gross profits which is derived from a number of sources, the accommodation side of the business is also supplemented by a popular public bar and recently the addition of an increasingly popular celebrity endorsed 50 cover Thai restaurant which makes this a true multi income stream business. The property is an immaculate 4 storey Grade II listed building with beautiful and spacious facilities which is a popular venue for functions of all kinds from business conferences to private wedding receptions and birthday parties. The business has great scope for an increase on turnover and would benefit from a more aggressive marketing strategy as advertising is only used on a limited basis, the business is now run at a pace to suit our clients lifestyle meaning any prospective purchaser can expand upon an already very creditable financial profile. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase a long established business with an outstanding reputation and as such early viewing is strongly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
