Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular guest house in an ideal location in Cottingham, East Riding of Yorkshire.

The business was established by our clients in 2001 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates all year round on a bed and breakfast only basis, generating a turnover in the region of £35,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

There is a balanced mix of clientele from business, University visitors, Hospital relatives and tourism. Our clients offer 5 letting rooms, 3 of which are en -suite, plus a garage converted into a letting annex, as well as owner’s accommodation with a lounge, kitchen, bathroom, double bedroom and dressing room. All the rooms have a colour TV and tea/coffee making facilities.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the rooms and service offered, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a good volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The guest house has excellent reviews on the popular website Trip Advisor.

We are advised that the guest house does have permission to operate as a tearoom, should a new owner desire.

We feel the turnover could be further increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the business further. There is also scope to offer evening meals if so desired. A new owner could also establish a website to advertise the business and accommodation offered, which could incorporate online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity, perhaps for a husband and wife team, to take this popular guest house to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Newholme Guest House occupies substantial two -storey premises, ideally located in the village of Cottingham, near Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire.

The establishment generates business from being situated between the University of Hull and the Halls of Residence.
