Description
Dolphin Hotel is an extremely busy business that has been run by the current proprietor since 2005. The hotel has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending retirement from the licensed trade. The hotel trades throughout the year from a good mix of accommodation and wet sales. Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website www.dolphinhoteleyemouth.com. It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its seaside location. Many of the visitors include tourists, locals, business people and ‘special occasion’ visitors throughout the year. Although the hotel is trading extremely successfully, it still has potential to grow income further. Currently the Dolphin Hotel does not offer food.
