The business is open 7 days a week and generates a turnover in the region of £210,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately £147,000.

The business has an excellent website in place, the website has a lot of information including, hotel information, restaurant menu's and prices, links to local areas of interest, information on booking rooms and events and photos of the building and rooms,

We feel the turnover could be expanded with promotion of evening dinners and lunches and extension of opening hours of restaurant. Obtaining of civil licence for weddings would also be very beneficial, and converting rooms and owner accommodation to provide extra guest bedrooms is a possibility.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this long established and thriving business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended.
