Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Commercial Hotel occupies substantial detached premises, ideally located in the rural town of Burghead, Morayshire. The premises benefits from ample on-street parking and are surrounded by a residential area. The business boasts an ideal trading position for tourism, with the sea front within easy walking distance and a number of golf clubs just a short drive away. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of complementary shops and businesses and there are a number of bus stops close by. The business boasts easy access to the A96, allowing good access to Inverness, which lies approximately 30 miles away. There are two RAF bases within 8 miles of the town, from which it draws much trade. Elgin is less than 8 miles to the south east and Nairn is 20 miles away.

Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this busy hotel and public house, which was established in 1900 and which has been in our clients' careful hands since 2003. The hotel is only now offered to the market due to our clients' other business interests. The business trades all year round, generating a turnover in the region of 150,000 per annum with a gross profit of 55%, derived from 6-letting rooms, bar sales and a breakfast menu. The hotel is also licensed to sell alcohol for consumption off the property. The business enjoys regular long term trade from contractors for the use of the letting rooms. The hotel has gained an excellent reputation over a century of trading and has a loyal customer base. The premises are well-equipped to suit the trade with a spacious bar area, lounge/dining area and a commercial kitchen, which was refurbished in 2009. There is also 3-bedroom owners' accommodation with lounge and bathroom. We feel the turnover could be increased by utilising the dining area and commercial kitchen further, by introducing lunch and evening menus. This is an ideal opportunity to acquire an already busy hotel and public house with huge scope for future growth. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial must come highly recommended.
