Business Description

Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market a Hotel and Restaurant, originally opened in 1988. Recently purchased by our clients, the exciting opportunity is now offered for sale due to ill health which is forcing an immediate sale. There is a long lease in place with 16 years still remaining and over £200,000 valued assets included in the sale.

The specifically designed building sits in the heart of a marina, a multi functioning business operating as a restaurant, 10 bedroomed boutique hotel, daytime bistro/cafe, bar and events location. Our clients have embarked on transforming the traditional business model and in just the first year of managing the business have enjoyed a 15% increase in turnover.

We believe, the number of deployment options for the site could easily allow any new buyer to increase turnover within the short term to around £1M and with further investment in the building layout increase this to around £1.5M.

Currently the business turnover is split evenly between the bar, food and hotel attracting old and new customers in all areas. We are informed that 40% of customers are from the marina bass, 30% from visitors and 30% from locals.

The restaurant offers a fine range of British cuisine, using locally sourced ingredients where possible serving classic fish and chips to mouth-watering pork belly. The addition of weekly specials has increased footfall and mid-week sales levels.

The bar/ cafe offers an extensive list of Italian coffee, soft drinks and children’s drinks, cocktails and beers.

The hotel currently offers a wide choice of 10 individually designed rooms, all with a view of the channel and many with large open balconies. They have an excellent 9/10 score on, an 84% room occupancy level and increasing number of loyal corporate guests.

Our client’s improvement programme included new decor and facilities in the hotel bedrooms, new furniture and office equipment, kitchen equipment as well as an overall review of the business efficiencies and controls.

We believe the journey of transforming this slightly dated operation has now begun and that any new buyer will be able to capitalise on the many new developments within this area that will be dramatically increasing the new customer footfall.

Adopting any of the following improvements would help drive turnover to the £1-£1.5 M threshold:
Modifying the hotel room layout and increasing available rooms from 10 to 15
Increasing the hotel room pricing structure and offering higher end decorated rooms / suites with improved facilities
Adding an available apartment in the building as a luxury hotel apartment to let on short or long term arrangement
Developing an unused ground floor area into a corporate meeting room, would increase both hotel income, bar and restaurant
Develop a new relationship with tour operators and pre-arranged groups to the area for set lunches, afternoon teas and events
Promote the restaurant and terrace space for more private parties, weddings and family christenings
Further develop the website booking facility, social media platforms and local advertising.

This business is priced to sell quickly, and we strongly advise early viewing to avoid disappointment.


The Hotel and Restaurant occupies a prominent position.
It is a unique development of 206 birth marina waterside homes, shops, restaurants, bars and hotel. There is also a storage ashore for over 120 boats and a slipway for trailer and car storage.

It is a popular destination Town with an attractive and quaint shopping area, a pier and regular ferry crossings.

Visitors to the marina can take a clear view of the English Channel. Southampton has become a successful port for shipping, a port for large cruise liners and the linked industries that line the shore.

The business benefits from ample free parking for both its hotel and restaurant guests.
