Business History

Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer to the market this tremendous hotel which has been established since the 1930's and in the careful hands of our clients since 2012. Our clients are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to personal reasons.

Since our clients took ownership of the business they have undertaken a full programme of refurbishment meaning that the business is in full walk in condition. Our clients have run the hotel 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 and to increase the turnover.

Our clients advise us that they generate a respectable annual turnover which is derived from the welcoming friendly service provided the comfortable guest rooms and the provision of hot and cold meals and beverages.

The business consists of 13 traditional en-suite letting rooms, a modern bar and restaurant, outdoor seating and parking. All of the rooms are fully equipped with colour televisions, hairdryers, central heating tea and coffee making facilities and towels.

The bedrooms all have modern décor six rooms have sea views and two of these have private balconies.

The owner's accommodation comprises a private kitchen/ dining room; bedroom/ work room; dressing/ storage room; family bathroom; bedroom/ office/ lounge with en-suite. The owner's accommodation is located in the basement of the property.

Our client's provide an excellent breakfast and a delicious a la Carte Evening Dinner menu which is served in the Bailey Dining Room. Customers can choose from a mouth-watering range of fantastic dishes on the menu or from the specials board. Alongside the food menu our clients offer a range of beverages from the fully licensed FitzRoy Bar.

Our clients offer a snack lunch and three course evening meals, catering for vegetarians and people with food allergies. The 30 cover dining room has sea views through the bar area and provides comfortable and spacious dining for guests. Currently serving hotel guests only in the dining room and bar, there is potential to expand business in this area by opening to external guests.

The comfortable rooms, excellent cuisine and diligent customer service at the Shipping Lanes has achieved a 4.5 of 5 rating on TripAdvisor with many complimentary reviews

Quality Assessed by Visit Lancashire and awarded a 5* of 5* hygiene rating by the Food Standards Agency, customers are assured of high quality service and food which increases their confidence in the business. The exceptionally high ratio of repeat custom speaks volumes for the business reputation.

There is scope for a new owner operator to further develop the business as there is potential for planning permission to expand the business by converting the car park at the rear into more letting rooms.

Our clients have continually developed and improved the business, introducing new lines and income streams which has enhanced the business massively.

They have built up a solid reputation within the local community, social media, TripAdvisor and beyond and as such have a high level of regular and repeat trade.

This business would ideally suit a husband and wife or partnership and can afford a good standard of living. This is an outstanding opportunity to purchase a premium business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is strongly advised as this business is not to be missed.
