Cedar Villa is a long-established guest house and has been run by the current owners for approximately 10 years. Over this time it has developed an excellent reputation for comfortable accommodation with a ‘home from home’ service. The business can be easily run by a couple, without the assistance of any additional staff, and is being placed on the market as the owners now wish to retire from the trade.
Located just 5 minutes from the main city centre of Inverness it attracts a diverse clientele including tourists, business contractors, salespeople and guests visiting the university. This eliminates reliance on one specific sector and allows the guest house to trade all year round. The peak trading season is from April to late October, during which time the business can trade at near 100% occupancy.
The 6 letting rooms (4 en-suite and 2 with a shared shower room/wc) are in excellent order, and have a combined total occupancy of 17 guests per night. Prices range from £35pppn, with all prices including a ‘hearty Scottish breakfast’ or continental option. Evening meals are served on request, an area that could be developed by new owners.
The business has a strong online presence, advertising both on their own website (with booking facilities) and many other sites including:, Laterooms and Expedia. On all of these sites, Cedar Villa has superb customer reviews and enjoys a 4.5 star rating on TripAdvisor.
The hospitality industry remains a high value and sustainable sector in the area, with Inverness being the gateway to many of Scotland’s major tourism destinations. Demand for short, weekend and city break accommodation is high and Cedar Villa is ideally situated to take full advantage of this.
