Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this 20 bedroom guest house which has been established since 1987 and has been in the careful hands of our clients since 2007. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to unfortunate ill health. Since our clients took ownership of the business they have run the business at a pace that suits their lifestyle, meaning that there is massive scope for a new hands on owner operator to further develop the business. Our clients inform us that annual turnover currently runs at 55,000 which is derived from offering welcoming bed & breakfast services to all who wish to visit. The hotel is extremely popular due to its' location in the business district and its forward bookings run well into 2013. This business would ideally suit a husband and wife or partnership and could afford a good standard of living. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established business, which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as businesses of this calibre rarely stay on the market for long.
