EM&F are delighted to present to the market the opportunity to acquire this substantial freehold hotel and nightclub situated in a prime location in Norwich City Centre. This long established and very well regarded business has only now become available due to the pending retirement of the owner who has enjoyed the past 44 years serving the people of Norwich and those that come to visit this fine city. With huge scope for extending the opening hours and offerings of the club or to redevelop the site, particularly given its location, we urge any interested party to contact us as soon as possible to arrange a viewing whilst the property remains available.
THE BUSINESS ITSELF
The business and building are split into two distinct parts with the ground and lower ground floor housing the well regarded ‘Mojos’ nightclub with the first and second floor operating as ‘Hotel Belmonte’ which provides 9 stylish en-suite guest bedrooms offered on a B&B basis.
Enjoying a turnover in the region of £435k with an adjusted net profit of c. £100k, the business provides very well for the owner however there is significant opportunity for a new owner to increase this substantially by developing its catering offering to hotel guests and the general public as well as by extending the opening times of the bar to take advantage of the year round local and tourist trade.
There is a small but dedicated team of staff who are very capable of running the business in the owners absence which may be of appeal to someone looking for an investment which can be manged on a more limited basis.
With two successful revenue streams, a large freehold property, extensive high quality fixtures and fittings and vast potential to increase turnover and profits further this is one which does warrant your closer inspection.
ALL MEASUREMENTS ARE APPROXIMATE AND FOR GUIDANCE ONLY.
