Deena Aranci Of Compass Estates is delighted to bring this busy, long-established Guest House in Elgin to the market. This is an exciting opportunity for someone to purchase this popular and substantial landmark property in a fantastic town centre location. This attractive property offers huge potential to expand the revenue and income streams with year-round trade.

If you’ve been thinking of a lifestyle change or have Guest House experience, this highly rated business would suit both an energetic couple with a passion for service and a creative flair, or an extended family due to the flexible family accommodation on offer. The current owners have successfully run this business for 17 years and it has provided them with an excellent work-home life balance while their children went through both primary and secondary school up until they left home.

The separate owners accommodation is fabulous with private sunny courtyard garden leading to a raised lawn area, a large garden room with Sauna that could be used as a gym/workshop etc and a garage with an electric charging unit.

This property has been well maintained and is being sold in walk in condition, allowing purchasers to operate immediately and further benefits from off street guest parking and a money saving Biomass boiler. RHI payments are received every 3 months amounting to more than they pay out. There’s 12 years left of this incentive and ownership is transferred to purchasers.

Currently operating six letting bedrooms plus public guest areas to suit the current owner’s lifestyle, however the is scope to increase number of guest rooms if the extensive and flexible five bedroom owners accommodation isn’t fully required.

Ground Floor
Upon entering this beautiful early Victorian building, you set foot into the impressive and spacious entrance hall with attractive staircase. This is one of the many charming features of this substantial property. Within this area is the old reception office with sliding glass windows where the original wood panelling and window shutters have been carefully and beautifully restored to their natural state. To the left you enter the modern well-equipped kitchen which has been thoughtfully designed to allow for seamless service, with integrated double ovens, warming drawers, coffee machine, separate sink areas and commercial appliances. The second door at the far end of the kitchen leads to the utility room with various commercial appliances and staircase leading up to the first and second floor. Back into the hall straight ahead you have a guest WC which has the pretty arch windows and door with square glass panes matching the main entrance door and to the right you enter the well sized dining room with windows to the front and side and feature fireplace.
From the back of the entrance hall you enter what is currently being used as owners’ accommodation which can be locked securely making it inaccessible by guests. The first room you enter is the office which leads through to the bathroom, the stylish hall with vestibule offering plenty of storage and entrance door from South Street on one side and back door leading to the private outdoor space on the other. The staircase is made from solid oak with glass panels and the doors in this area are also oak. The generous bright lounge also has a door leading to the private outdoor space. The last room on this floor is a spacious bedroom with huge wardrobes with sliding doors and hard wood floor.

First Floor
Staying in the owner’s accommodation using what is their private staircase at present, you have a further two bedrooms and stylish shower room on the first floor that is currently being used as part of the owners accommodation and is separated from the letting room by a heavy fire door that is securely locked from this area so guests cannot access it. However, this area has been designed in a way that it can be reconfigured to allow for these rooms to be used as guest accommodation if new owners wish to increase the number of guest rooms available.
On this floor there are six letting bedrooms, five of which are ensuite and one has a large separate private bathroom. All rooms are well presented and offer varying accommodation, from family rooms to one single that has been very recently renovated and is popular with regular business travellers.
