Meridian Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this truly exceptional freehold opportunity which has a proud history dating back to the 1970’s. Since 1990 the business has been owned and run by our client who is reluctantly placing it onto the market due to health reasons. The business which is managed by our client achieves a very respectful (advised) annual turnover of £200,000. This is derived from offering a very good standard of guest accommodation coupled with a popular restaurant and bar. Both the restaurant and hotel benefit from substantial repeat trade from local business and private clientele. The property also offers sizable conference facilities in its main dining area which is very popular with businesses in and around Swindon. The property can only be described as well presented throughout with many original features and a wealth of character. Our client has gone to considerable expense and effort on the property’s presentation which is a big plus for a new owner as there will be no need for additional funds to be spent for the foreseeable future. We feel that this opportunity offers a new owner an excellent base to build upon and we urge early interest and viewing of this truly exceptional business.
