Business Description
Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market The Arden Hotel, a family run business owned by our clients since 2006 and now offered for sale due to retirement.

Our clients offer 8 letting rooms with a full capacity of 18 guests.

Our clients offer great value and flexibility on their rooms, with prices ranging from £42 per night for a single room to £82 for a superior room.

Our clients enjoy 80-90% room occupancy levels in the summer; the Guest House is run at a pace in the winter months, to allow our clients to enjoy more family time. The property is extremely well maintained and will allow any new owner to walk straight in and carry on trading.

Our clients attract families, couples and theatre goers; and have selected rooms that are pet friendly.

There is an excellent choice of breakfasts to suit all dietary requirements; available from the large 18 cover dining room.

Opportunity to increase current turnover by increasing all year round availability and increase the number of letting rooms by converting some rooms.

The Arden Hotel occupies a commanding trading position on Burlington Place in the heart of Victorian Eastbourne, East Sussex and just 50 metres up from the sea.

Burlington Place leads directly off the Grand Parade, with its beautiful Victorian gardens and 3 miles of promenade with direct views overlooking the sea. The Guest House is only 2 minutes’ walk from the newly refurbished pier, bandstand, traditional amusement arcades, restaurants and cafes. Both the famous theatre land and shopping mall are undergoing a massive redevelopment programme which will directly increase the footfall to the area and those looking for quality Guest Houses to stay.

The area enjoys a high number of foreign students and visitors due to the proximity of excellent language colleges and universities.

There is limited free guest parking directly behind in the private car park as well as discounted parking on Burlington Place.

There has been massive residential development in this area also with many larger hotels now converted in luxury apartments, an example of such is located behind the hotel where apartments are being sold for £400,000.
