Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this outstanding 16 letting room hotel, 15 of which are en-suite with 1 separate private bathroom. The hotel has been in the capable hands of our client for the past 3 years. The only reason this exceptional opportunity is being offered to the market is due to the unfortunate bereavement of an immediate family member. Since owning the business our clients have spent a considerable amount of money in upgrading the property and facilities to the point where the business now represents a true 'turnkey' opportunity for any prospective purchaser. We are advised of a very respectable annual turnover of £74,807 with good gross profits which is derived from the letting of our client's hotel rooms. There is great potential to increase turnover with the addition of an evening meal service which is not currently available. The business has an outstanding reputation and benefits from a high percentage of repeat trade and regular visitors as well as good passing trade due to its seafront location. Indeed the business has been accredited with a 4 star rating by the respected Visit England organisation. Our client only advertise very limitedly but benefit from large numbers of recommendations from organisations locally such as the tourist information board providing further scope for improvement with the addition of booking agents or an affiliation with a coach holiday company. This is a superb opportunity to purchase a thriving business with great scope for improvement in a beautiful coastal location and as such early viewing comes highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
