Description
Bruce and Co. are delighted to offer for sale The Bank Guest House, a beautifully presented Guest House situated in the popular Market town of Hawick. The business is highly rated on Trip Advisor and features on several hotel booking sites receiving exemplary feedback from previous guests. The Bank Guest House provides luxury bed and breakfast accommodation in a traditional property with contemporary interior making the business very unique in the local area. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients since 2006 during which time they have carefully carried out substantial renovations throughout the entire property. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due their impending wish to retire. The Bank Guest House enjoys a generous turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home. The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by viewing. This business is a true testament to the work carried out by our clients and the service offered at The Bank Guest House.
