Probably one of the best positioned guest houses for sale in Torquay, Devon. A fantastic opportunity to acquire a beautifully presented luxury 5 en-suite letting rooms business, with trading figures equal to most twice the size. Successfully owner operated for many years having undergone a rolling programme of refurbishment, the business is now being presented as a turnkey, without the need of any work. Situated overlooking the Babbacombe Downs with stunning sea and coastal views together with parking to the front and rear of the property. The 2 bedroom en-suite owners’ accommodation is substantial with a lovely lounge/diner, workshop/garage, utility room and internal courtyard which catches the sun nearly all day long. Early viewings are highly recommended.
Location
Torquay has long been one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations and those who live there enjoy a great quality of life. The iconic palm trees, busy harbour, international marina, not forgetting the mild climate, could fool you into thinking you were in the Mediterranean. This all-year-round resort also benefits from top quality shows at the Princess Theatre and a huge choice of festivals and events. The Seabreeze is on the sought after and beautiful Babbacombe Downs, Torquay, which has the highest cliff top promenade in England and on a clear day you can see right across to Portland Bill in Dorset. It's the perfect place to relax and gaze out to sea. The location is flat and within easy access of the town centre, seafront and harbour.
Business
The business trades exceptionally well with high occupancy and high room rates and if needed, it could trade all year round. Because of lifestyle choice, the owners trade 8 months per year, but the already impressive income could be easily improved by opening for longer and with improved marketing. The current income is equal to many similar guest houses that are twice the size, but without the expense or work needed. Actual trading figures will be made available, following successful viewing.
