Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular guest house business, which is ideally located in Cleethorpes, Lincolnshire.
The business was original established as a guest house in the 1980s and has been in our clients’ careful ownership since 2000. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients’ desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates all year round and according to accounts for the year ending April 2015 the turnover is £27,502, with a gross profit of approximately 93½%.
Our clients offer 7 guest rooms, which comprise of single, twin or double on a bed and breakfast basis. There is also 1 extra room which is used as owner’s accommodation. Our clients are currently enjoying regular business with contractors on a room only basis. All the letting rooms offers TV, coffee maker and a complimentary tray. The property boasts an impressive 251 sq. metres of floor space, is very well maintained and decorated to a very high standard throughout
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the very high quality of the accommodation and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign and registering with online booking agents. A new owner could also launch a website to promote the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities, as well as advertising the business on social media websites.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already busy business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
