Rosemount Guest House is a delightful Victorian town house built circa 1890 that has been tastefully refurbished by the current owners to create an 8 bedroom guest house in the charming coastal town of Buckie. The guest house occupies a superb location enjoying stunning views over the Harbour and beyond to the spectacular Moray Firth. The property is extremely well maintained and tastefully decorated creating a wonderful opportunity to take over a business in true walk in fashion. Demand for short, weekend and long stay break accommodation is high and Rosemount Guest House is ideally situated to take full advantage and meet that requirement.

The business is currently run by the owners with the assistance of cleaning staff as and when required. The prime trading season is from Easter to October but the Guest House still maintains a steady trade over winter months with high demand from contractors, medical students on placements and business people, only closing when the owners desire.
Rosemount Guest House has been operating as guest house for over 20 years and over this time has developed a great reputation and benefits greatly from much repeat trade. With 8 comfortable letting rooms; set out as either singles, doubles, twins or family rooms, the guest house offers good quality accommodation to a variety of clientele including workers, tourists and families. All rooms have been upgraded with new beds (many of which benefit from having zip-link beds for greater flexibility), furniture, carpeting and décor. Prices range from £52 a night up to £105 with all prices including a ‘hearty’ Scottish breakfast, cooked fresh to order and prepared with locally sourced produce. The current owners also offer to prepare pack lunches and evening meals if booked in advance; this could be expanded with new owners offering a regular lunch/evening menu.
The business has its own website but does not take online bookings or use the likes of Bookings.com or Laterooms.com which could significantly increase business during the quieter periods.
