Location - The coastal town of Penzance is situated in West Cornwall and is the embarkation point for tourists visiting the Isles of Scilly by ferry. The town is the administrative centre for West Cornwall, providing good all year round trade and offering a range of shops, bars and restaurants. This area of the county is popular for its dramatic coastline, fine sandy beaches and places of interest include St Michaels Mount, Lands End, the open air Minack Theatre and the Tate of the West Gallery in St Ives. Westbourne House itself is situated on the popular Alexandra Road, just a short walk from the town centre, seafront and promenade.

The configuration of the guest accommodation is flexible where 2 of the first floor and the 2 second floor bedrooms can and have been utilised as 2 bedroom family suites. The property retains many character features and is warmed by a gas fired central heating system. The guest bedrooms are well-appointed and equipped.

The Business: - Our clients have traded from Westbourne House for some 20 years and now wish to retire. The business can trade all year round; however our clients have chosen to trade on a seasonal basis, so potential does exist to trade the Westbourne on a more commercial basis. The current tariffs range from £85 - £115 per room, per night on a Bed and Breakfast basis, which produced sales approaching £50,000 for the most recent financial year. In the normal manner, further accounting information will be made available to prospective purchasers subsequent to a viewing appointment.
