A stunning, victorian 10-bedroom boutique hotel for sale set a lovely location within a short stroll from the harbour, beach and the town centre of torquay. This beautifully guesthouse is presented to a lovely standard and enjoys high repeat custom. With extensive parking, south facing garden, spacious two-bedroom owners’ penthouse accommodation with additional ground floor suite, this business is highly profitable, which provides our clients with an enviable lifestyle and the ability to travel the world during the winter months. However, we the agents feel there is tremendous scope to expand the business further. Early viewings are highly recommended....


the berburry hotel is situated on the corner of bampfylde road which is a quiet tree lined road only minutes’ walk to torquay harbour, sea front and town centre. It is conveniently situated both for the local bus and railway station and ideally located to access all main arterial roads reaching cities like plymouth and the cathedral city of exeter with its international airport nearby.


successfully owner operated with part-time assistance, the quality accommodation and location of this property are generating an impressive turn over and subsequent net profit. With a high occupancy rate and high repeat custom during the 10 months trading period, the business has been awarded excellent scoring and good trip adviser reviews which are reflected on our client’s profits.
