Business History
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this popular 13-letting room hotel and restaurant, which was established in the 1930s and which has been in our client's hands since 2006. The business is only now being placed on the market due to our client's wish to retire. The business is currently run at a pace to suit our client and generates a turnover in the region of 65,000 per annum with a gross profit of 85%, derived from offering 13 en-suite letting rooms on a bed and breakfast only basis. A new owner could easily increase turnover by offering evening meals and opening the restaurant to non-residents. There is also a bar, which is not currently operating, which again could be open to non-residents. The property is well maintained throughout and boasts a private cottage, which could be used as owners' accommodation, a large bar area and a large dining room, as well as delightful external seating areas. There is a web site in place offering information about the hotel and the resort, which we feel would benefit from on-line booking facilities. The Palmerston Hotel boasts excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and similar web sites and benefits from much loyal repeat custom. We feel this is an ideal opportunity to acquire a well-established an popular hotel, ideally located within Shanklin and with immense scope for future growth. Early viewing, arranged with Preferred Commercial, must come highly recommended.
