Description

A fine, substantial, four storey, Victorian terrace property that has recently undergone refurbishment to provide modern and comfortable guest accommodation. The Dalby Rooms has already established itself as one of the most popular places to stay for guests visiting the Cliftonville/Margate area.

The comfortable and individually designed guest rooms benefit from the comforts of smart TVs and complimentary WiFi.

Location

The Dalby Rooms is located in Dalby Square which has, over the last five years, had the benefit of a Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) Grant Scheme, a £2.5M scheme dedicated to preserving the unique heritage of Dalby Square, the historic heart of Cliftonville West.

Dalby Square is just off Cliff Terrace, the main seafront road and a short distance from the Lido Leisure Centre, The Oval Gardens, Winter Gardens, Turner Contemporary Gallery and Margate Harbour.

There are frequent high speed trains to Margate from London, which take around one hour and 30 minutes from St Pancras International, London Victoria or Charing Cross, or by road via the A299 Thanet Way and the A28 via Canterbury.

Internal Details

Main entrance door into the hallway with access to the upper and lower floors.

The guest lounge, dining room, bar and kitchen are situated on the lower ground floor.

Fixtures & Fittings

All trade fixtures and fittings are included in the sale.

Letting Accommodation

There are 11 guest bedrooms located over ground, first and second floors, eight of them having full en suite facilities and three sharing a shower room with toilet and wash hand basin. These three bedrooms are ideal as a family unit.

The mix of rooms comprises one family room with two beds, nine king/double size rooms and one single.

Owner's Accommodation

Although there is no specific owners' accommodation, an owner could take some space should they wish to do so. The business, however, is ideally set up for off-site living owners, with the use of a secure remote entry system for guest check in.

The Opportunity

Although the business only opened its doors in March 2017, it has already built up a great reputation with guests, with many revisiting on a regular basis.

The owners have set up the business employing modern technology to enable it to be managed with the minimum of fuss by way of a secure remote check in system, which allows guests to enter the building and their rooms without the need for the owners being present all the time.

Also installed, for the comfort of guests, are smart TVs and complimentary WiFi.

Although there is a kitchen, guests are provided with a continental breakfast, again making the business as easy to run as possible.

Staff

The business is run by husband and wife owners with very limited outside help.

Trading Information

It is expected that the latest 12 month trading period will show a gross turnover of around £140,000 and the owners have only recently elected for flat rate VAT. Net profits are expected to be close to £90,000.

Business Rates

The rateable value is £10,250 but with all the relief benefits the owners currently have, they pay no business rates.
