BUSINESS
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this high-quality guest house business in Brigg, North Lincolnshire. The business was established in 2003 by our client. The business is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` family commitments. The business generated a turnover in the region of 42,000 as of the 2015 accounts.

Albert House is a popular guest house with a great reputation proven by the good reviews on www.tripadvisor.co.uk; we are advised there are reviews of 9.5%. The guest house scored a 4-star rating with the Tourist Information Board and is registered with booking agents. A great website is already in place for the guest house which has information about the accommodation, prices, places of interest and how to find them, www.albert-house.co.uk.

The guest house has 7 bedrooms with each having an individual design and comfortable furnishings that are in keeping with the period of the house. Each of the rooms are equipped with a colour TV, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer and complementary toiletries. The building is grade II listed and has many appealing traditional features such as fire surrounds, furnishings, ceiling roses, and exposed beams in attic rooms.

Breakfast is offered to the guest which includes a full English option incorporating locally produced bacon and black pudding and is complemented with a variety of cereals, toast and freshly brewed coffee, tea and fruit juice. Alternatives are available including the house-special omelettes and dietary and individual requirements are catered for. The business also offers the use of a kitchen 24 hours a day for people who are staying long term.

The turnover could be improved with target marketing and advertising to increase bookings, offering evening meals to guest would also prove very beneficial. The coach house attached to the building requires some refurbishment but offers additional accommodation for the owners or as a further letting room.
