Melrose Villa Guest House occupies substantial stone built premises ideally located in the centre of Inverness. Situated on Kenneth Street, the property is surrounded by a range of similar properties and businesses. The business is within easy walking distance of the city centre and there is a bus stop close by. Inverness is a large and vibrant city, which is popular with tourists all year round who enjoy the wide range of amenities in the city, the outdoor activities in the surrounding areas and its connections with the legend of the Loch Ness Monster.
Preferred Commercial is delighted to offer for sale this 3-storey guest house, which was established in 1990 and which has been operated by our client since 2006. The business is only now presented to the market due to our client's wish to retire. The property benefits from Victorian proportions and boasts high ceilings, decorative cornicing and attractive interior archways. The property offers 9 letting rooms, 3-bedroom owners' accommodation, a patio area to the rear and a small enclosed garden to the front. The majority of the letting rooms have en-suite facilities, with the exception of rooms 5 & 6, which have plumbing in place for installation. The business trades for nine months of the year and generates a turnover in the region of £57,000 with a gross profit of 90%. Our client has built up a loyal customer base, with visitors returning every year to enjoy the local amenities. We feel there is potential to increase turnover by extending the trading months to all year round and by offering lunch and evening meals. The new owner could, if desired, apply for an alcohol license. This is an ideal lifestyle change opportunity to acquire a substantial property in a great location, which is already profitable and has further potential. Early negotiations with Preferred Commercial are highly recommended.
