Full description

Hickman Hill is an attractive and characterful property in a lovely garden setting and the hotel of choice for discerning clientele in the region. The garden and grounds are a delight, the public rooms combine character and comfort and the hotel has a nice variety of bedrooms including 5 which have been completely refurbished to a high standard.

Conveniently situated in a pleasant residential area easily accessible from the town centre, Hickman Hill draws commercial and leisure based business to the letting bedrooms and provides restaurant, function and meeting facilities. Gainsborough itself is a substantial market town serving a large surrounding rural community and has a vibrant centre with modern shopping facilities. Ping Europe with its custom fitting services is based at Gainsborough Golf Club and one of the finest medieval houses, Gainsborough Old Hall, is located nearby. As with many towns, Gainsborough is expanding, and being the principal hotel Hickman Hill is set to benefit greatly as the population grows.

The owners acquired Hickman Hill Hotel in 2005 and have operated a good class traditional hotel and restaurant business and invested large capital sums improving the bedrooms. Now, after 10 years at the helm, it is time to move on and buyers have an opportunity to buy a much loved hotel with good all round business and exciting scope for further improvement.
