Full description

Guildhall Bridge Pets Hotel is an extremely well run business that has been owned and operated by the current proprietors since 2010. The current vendors purchased the property in 2005, who then designed and built the kennels before opening the business in 2010. The business and property have been placed on to the market due to the current proprietor's impending wish to relocate abroad.

The business trades throughout the year and enjoys much repeat custom from a loyal base of clientele, with clients booking months in advance to secure a space for their pet.

Additional marketing is carried out through its own informative website
