Tourism is on the rise in Blackpool and with a good online presence and Social Media marketing it could attract visitors from far and wide. Currently boasting a 5 Star Rating on Trip Advisor (as at 14/6/16), it has 10 ensuite bedrooms and there is a one bedroomed apartment in the basement for the owner or manager's accommodation.
With recent musicals such as Mamma Mia and Cats direct from the West End running a season in Blackpool, who knows what will be coming nextr? There are many festival weekends held in Blackpool bringing in more trade and don't forget nearby towns such as Fleetwood with its Tram Sunday Festival, Lytham with the increasingly popular and expanding Lytham Festival as well as the 1940s weekend, all within a six mile radius. Next year will also see beds being filled by armchair, professional and would-be golfers all looking to feel the buzz of the Open at Royal Lytham Golf Course. Don't forget the famous Blackpool Illuminations too that extend the summer season through until early November!
This hotel has been owned by the same owners for the past 23 years and during this time they have constantly updated the rooms to a high standard. It is currently classed as a 3 Star Hotel but with just a little extra energy it could quite easily become a 4 Star Hotel, it is so close! The current owners feel the time is right to hand the reigns over to someone who has the vision to make it prosper. There is an opportunity to serve evening meals to increase the takings as well as perhaps evening entertainment to increase the profits behind the bar. As the current owners have approached retirement they have maintained their clientele they have built over the years but there is a gap to market this hotel using modern methods such as social media and the internet to attract a new generation of client.
This property is currently run as a 10 bedroomed hotel, with all rooms ensuite, with a TV, safe and tea and coffee making facility in all rooms, not to mention a stairlift to the first floor allowing disabled access. On the top floor all the rooms have ceiling fans for those warmer nights in summer. The hotel is being sold with just about all of the contents allowing the purchaser to walk in and carry on the business as it is being run now, literally a turn-key business It must be mentioned that it is only located about 200m from South Pier yet is not actually in the Blackpool Council Tourism Area, which means this hotel can be decommissioned and used as a family home, a rest home, or any other use you may think of, subject to planning consent of course! The world is your oyster, as they say down at Robert's Oyster Rooms on the Prom!!
This home includes:
As you enter this hotel there is a small Reception Desk and plenty of space to leave your baggage whilst checking in or checking out. There is a stairlift that leads to the first floor.
- Sun Lounge
At the front of the hotel there is a sun lounge which has recently had a new double glazed frontage installed. There is still a little work to do in this room to bring it up to date, but nothing major. A pleasant room, also affectionately known as the 'Dry Lounge', from days when children weren't allowed in the bar!
This room also contains the well stocked bar and a pool table. Tastefully decorated and with feature lighting.
