Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established guest house business in an ideal trading location in Ayr, Scotland.

This popular guest house is only now being offered to the market due to our clients desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates all year round and generates a turnover in the region of £32,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 78%.

The turnover is derived from the letting of 5 guest rooms with en-suite facilities on a bed and breakfast only basis. The property is furnished to a very high standard with colour TVs, full central heating and tea/coffee making facilities in all rooms, with free Wi-Fi in public areas and some bedrooms. Guests can relax in the residents lounge with Sky TV.

The property further benefits from private owners accommodation comprising of a fully fitted kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms, master bedroom with en-suite shower, bathroom and lounge.

The business has built up an enviable reputation within the industry for the high quality of the accommodation offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with good repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations. The business also has excellent reviews on the popular website Trip Advisor.

We feel the turnover could be increased by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and services offered. The business would benefit from the launch of a website to promote the business, which could incorporate online booking facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular guest house business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Kilkerran Guest House occupies substantial two-storey premises, ideally located in a prominent and highly desirable trading location on Prestwick Road within the coastal town of Ayr in Scotland.
