Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Redcliffe is a superbly appointed small hotel situated within an attractive period terrace on Scarborough's elegant and much favoured South Cliff. The hotel was extensively refurbished in late 2003/early 2004 and the current owners have continued to reinvest income so that today the Redcliffe is a delightful home and business when all the hard work has been done and all is set fair for strong future trading.

The premier resort in Yorkshire and one of the largest on the east coast of Britain, Scarborough has a tremendous amount to offer visitors and the Redcliffe Hotel is very conveniently situated being in a lovely part of the resort on level ground only a short walk from the Cliff Lift leading to the Spa Complex and foreshore. The hotel is also close to the town centre with its modern Brunswick Shopping Centre and entertainment attractions, including the Stephen Joseph Theatre. Scarborough also has a steady stream of conference, events and concert business so there is always something going on and there are lovely golf courses plus fishing, surfing and excellent walks.

The current owners purchased the Redcliffe Hotel in 2005 and have thoroughly enjoyed living and working in this lovely hotel and attractive town. Now, as retirement approaches, the decision to sell has been made giving buyers an opportunity to acquire a first rate B&B business with 2 flats ideal for extended family or for extra income.


Accommodation is arranged on ground, lower ground and 4 upper floors. The hotel benefits from a 4 person passenger lift serving all floors.

Whilst there is always plenty of call for evening meals the owners prefer to operate on an easily run bed and breakfast basis. They are open for about 40 to 42 weeks per year and the accounts for the year ended 30 September 2014 show 25,652 adjusted trading profits (before
depreciation and excess repairs) on turnover 68,270. The business is not VAT registered. This is a pre-retirement sale and those wishing to increase profits will find plenty of potential for extra
income and cost savings.
