Business Description
A prime Sea Front Guest House operating as a successful and lucrative business and is now for sale in Whitby, North Yorkshire. The high turnover reflects its prime sea front position and attracts many more guests than guesthouses located in the side and back streets. Please explore our website and see the many pictures on the home page.

The guesthouse offers unrivalled sea views and is positioned close to the famous whalebones overlooking the beach and West Pier. The Guest House offers outstanding accommodation with 17 of the 23 Guest Bedrooms having Stunning Sea and Harbour views. The guesthouse is in a convenient central location for guests being close to the beach, harbour, town and spa pavilion. This means that arriving guests can park their car and leave their car with all of Whitby`s attractions then within walking distance.

The property has been maintained and finished to a very High Standard with modern fixtures and fittings whilst retaining the period charm and integrity found in these highly desirable Victorian buildings. This high standard in the bedrooms and bathrooms is exactly what today`s guests expect and demand. They do not settle for poor standards of cleanliness and tired looking rooms. The new owners can move straight into this guesthouse and operate with confidence.

The property includes a a beautiful owners Penthouse apartment and a further live in suite on the ground floor.The Guesthouse has a high ratio of Sea View to Non Sea View Rooms with is very advantageous financially comprising; 2 Sea View Guest Suites, 1 Sea View Four Poster Room, 8 Sea View Doubles, 3 Sea View Twins, 1 Sea View Family Room and 2 Sea View Single Room and there are 6 Non Sea View Doubles. All of the Bedrooms have their own en-suite facilities that are equipped with showers or Bath, Hand Basins And WC. The property is one of the few hotels/guest Houses with a lift, which again is good for business and attracts many more guests

The business is ready for new enthusiastic owners to allow the present owners to retire. The potential for increasing turnover has to be seen to be appreciated with many unused rooms including big bay windowed lounges perfect for a restaurant in a prime West Cliff location.

Please Note: This business can be run remotely as an investment due to the location and number of guest bedrooms. A manager and staff can run the business for the owner whilst refurbishing and maintaining the building and contents and yet still make a profit for the owner. Of course the building itself will appreciate in value over time also. This can be seen from the yearly accounts.

Builders please note: The building is perfect for conversion to seafront apartments. It has a lift and splits perfect into apartments for ease of conversion. The apartments being seafront would fetch a premium price.

The business has been trading full time for the main summer months July/August/September. Week-ends only February to June and October to November. Closed December and January. There is therefore a lot of further potential to increase what is already a high turnover.
