Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established guest house Thistle Inn located in the delightful Stranraer.

The business was established over 50 years ago and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients` desire for well-deserved retirement.

The business operates throughout the year and generates a turnover in the region of £51,000 per annum.

This is well established family run business.

There is the added benefit of a 2-bedroom bungalow and 5 letting chalets, included in the sale price. Of traditional construction the property is in good condition throughout and provides great potential for further ongoing development. Enjoying a loyal customer base, it is well positioned to attract new business and those in search of a business investment are recommended to view.

The business has an excellent and comprehensive website in place to promote the business and the services offered, as well as online booking facilities, which are easy to use.

There is scope for a new owner to convert part of the guest house to offer owners` accommodation.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already popular business, with scope for future growth, to the next level; therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended.
