The well appointed accommodation is arranged over three floors and features excellent guest facilities including 17 en suite bedrooms, four principle internal trade areas and a large external terrace for alfresco dining and beverages. The hotel is ideally suited to an owner operator as it benefits from a spacious three bedroom owners accommodation with private garden.

Our client's purchased Eype's Mouth Country Hotel in January 2004 and over the years have created a successful destination hotel business known for it's friendly welcome, good food and popular events.
