This well established 19 bedroom guest house is situated in the thriving city of Leicester. Perched astride the river Soar, Leicester is home to nearly 300,000 residents, making it one of the UK's larger cities. Surrounded by rolling countryside, the city also lies adjacent to the English National Forest, a perfect spot for walkers. Leicester town centre is dominated by impressive Victorian architecture, although much new development has sprung up in recent years and more projects are planned, including a state-of-the-art performing arts centre. Shoppers are also well provided for in the city, with several large retail areas and outdoor markets. Leicester is home to two universities, the University of Leicester, which attained its Royal Charter in 1957 and is one of Britain's leading universities ranked 12th by the 2009 Complete University Guide, and De Montfort University, which opened in 1969 as Leicester Polytechnic and achieved university status in 1992. The business is accessed by the A5460 from the M69 motorway which gives easy access to the M6 and M1 motorways

Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this well appointed freehold 19 bedroom guest house. The business has been established for over 50 years and has been in the careful hands of our clients for the last 6 years. The only reason this excellent opportunity is being offered to the market is due to our clients wish for a lifestyle and career change. Since our clients took ownership of the property they have under gone major refurbishment and have made a 60,000 investment on bringing the property up to standard along with purchasing high quality fixtures and fittings which are all are included within the sale price. However the property will still need some re-decorating do be done. The business is close to the university so attracts lots of students and students' parents who are visiting, it's close to the hospital so it attracts hospital workers and it's also a favourite for out of town contractors. The business is owner operated but they do not live on-site and they employ 2 part time members of staff one of which is a manager who lives on-site. Our client informs us that they have an annual turnover of 81,889 which can easily be increased as prices are long overdue for an increase. Currently the business is run on a room only basis so there is potential to serve breakfasts and evening meals. Early viewing is highly recommended as this business cannot be missed. Currently re-decorating all rooms.
