Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale Craggallan, a beautifully presented 4* Guest House situated in the coastal town of Ayr. The business features on several hotel booking sites where it receives positive feedback and reviews from previous guests. Craggallan provides luxury modern bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding property with elegant interior. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 7 years during which time they have carefully carried out substantial refurbishments throughout the entire property to a very high standard. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to family commitments. Craggallan enjoys a generous turnover and provides the owners with an excellent source of income in addition to a superbly presented property which can only be appreciated in full by viewing. The business enjoys high occupancy levels and trades successfully all year round which is a true testament to the current owners who have invested heavily in the business to ensure that travellers experience a high level of comfort and service during their stay. A potential way to increase turnover could be to extend to the rear of the property as the business benefits from a very spacious garden and many of the surrounding properties have already implemented similar extensions.

Ayr is an attractive coastal town situated on the west coast of Scotland approximately 30 minutes drive south of Glasgow. Ayr has a long history, for example, it has a harbour that for centuries was the most important on the west coast of Scotland, a racecourse dating back to 1770 and all the attractions of a seaside resort. Ayr Racecourse is one of Scotland's major racecourses and hosts the Scottish Grand National in April and Ayr Gold Cup in September, which brings tens of thousands of visitors to the area. There is also Prestwick International Airport that is situated on the outskirts of Ayr and again brings in a lot of International visitors to Ayrshire and the surrounding areas all year round. Many of these visitors are golfing enthusiasts that visit Ayrshire to play many of the highly acclaimed golf courses that include Royal Troon and Turnberry. There are approximately 30 golf courses within half an hour's drive from Ayr. Craggallan Guest House is situated on Queens Terrace in the town centre close to the beach. This is a great benefit for the business as customers can enjoy the many amenities that you would expect to find in a town centre along with easy access to the beach and stunning coastal views.

he business premises occupy an impressive mid-terraced building which is of Victorian style on one of Ayr's most desirable spots. The décor and interior has been thoughtfully planned and implemented by the current owners to an extremely high standard throughout which is reflected in the positive reviews by previous guests. The property is arranged over 3 floors and entrance to the building is straight from street which leads in to a large welcoming reception hallway. The business benefits from a spacious kitchen which provides more than adequate facilities and space to cater commercially for residents at breakfast time. Although currently evening meals are not offered in the dining room this is an area which new owners could promote.

The property has 6 en-suite letting rooms all of which are luxuriously appointed. The rooms range from double, triple, twin and family rooms to flexibly accommodate a variety of guests. Some of the rooms benefit from scenic sea views as well as LED TV, iPod docking station, Wi - Fi internet access, hairdryer, iron and ironing board plus safe.
