Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and popular guest house business in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

The business was established in the 1950’s and has been in our client’s careful ownership since 2001. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates all year round and generates a turnover in the region of £25,000 per annum, with a good gross profit.

The guest house has ten well-presented letting rooms on a bed & breakfast only basis, which is served in a spacious dining room with approximately 16 covers. The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the accommodation and the service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to promote the guest accommodation and service offered. A new owner could also apply for an alcohol licence and launch a website for the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already well-established business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment

The Craythorne Hotel occupies substantial four storey premises, ideally located within the very popular seaside town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire. The property is surrounded by similar businesses, residential properties and retail businesses. The business benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade. All the local amenities are within close proximity and the beach is just a 10 minute walk away.

Scarborough is a popular seaside town on the North Sea coast in North Yorkshire. The town became known as the world’s first seaside resort in the 1600’s, when the health giving properties of the spa waters were discovered. Scarborough has a wide cultural scene, spread across the town and seafront, which draws people not only from around the country, but from across the world.

The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with several bus stops within easy walking distance of the property. Scarborough railway station is just over 5 minutes’ walk away.
