Business Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this stunning, well-established 3-star guest house business with an enviable reputation. The Albert Villa Guest House has been trading for 40 years and under the ownership of our clients for the last 17 years and only now is being offered for sale due to our client’s desire to retire from the industry.
The business has an excellent reputation with guests for the high-quality service, beautiful accommodation and delicious breakfast cuisine, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals, all resulting in a 3-star Scottish tourist board rating along with some superb trip advisor and google reviews.
The business attracts bookings from all four corners of the globe with approximately 70% of these being repeat visitors and is popular with tourists, golf and wedding parties, walkers, business people, one off weekend breaks and contractors with the latter finding it very suitable due to the rear extension facility giving them freedom to come and go as they please without having to pass through the main house.
The guest house is one of the largest in the area and so can also accommodate the “overflow” bookings when required from other B&B’s located close by. Over the last few years the guest house itself has undergone a programme of refurbishment and can now be found in outstanding condition throughout.
The turnover is generated by offering 10 guest rooms, 7 of which have en-suite facilities with 3 having shared bathrooms.
Breakfast is served in the spacious and sunny 19 cover dining room by our clients and uses only the best quality ingredients and locally sourced produce where possible
The business has an excellent website in place to advertise the business and the services offered along with the option to book a room. The guest house also benefits from free off-street parking on site to the rear.
There is scope to further increase turn over with the introduction of online partner booking sites, and perhaps national press marketing to attract and grow the weekend break experience. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already thriving and exciting business to the next level.
Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate this very well run & immaculate business.
