Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Foxhills is a former Victorian gentleman's residence which has been run as a successful hotel for many years. The vendors have owned the business since 2001 and have spent a considerable amount of money refurbishing and upgrading the property so as to present it to guests to a very high standard. The hotel currently holds a Five Star Gold award from Enjoy England together with a breakfast award.

The hotel is delightfully situated in a tree lined avenue and is close to Shanklin town centre, convenient to the Railway Station with the attractive Old Village area and the Esplanade and Beach also being nearby.

The business currently has eight guest letting rooms catering for sixteen guests and all rooms have en-suite facilities. All the public areas and bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished in different styles and we feel that Foxhills is ideally suited for owners wishing to offer a quality service to their guests, combined with a very comfortable home environment. Foxhills also features a Whirlpool spa area, and also has a beauty room where guests can order a range of massages and beauty treatments from a visiting practitioner.

Currently the owners offer bed and breakfast accommodation, but there is great scope for new owners to open up the restaurant business that used to be enjoyed at the property and also has scope for small private functions and conferences.

One of the many assets of this property is its large private accommodation area for owners, which incorporates a large living area, kitchen, shower room and four bedrooms. This area is far in excess of what is normally found in hotels of this size and therefore does make it quite suitable to be run by owners with family.

This is a superb opportunity for a purchaser to acquire a well known land mark hotel in Shanklin, with great potential to enlarge the business. We really must emphasise the need to view the property internally to fully appreciate the well-appointed accommodation that comprises :-
