Available on request

Veritas Business Sales are delighted to offer for sale this respected 7 Bedroom Guest House which is located in the vibrant City of Plymouth in Devon. The business has been established for over 40 years and has been in the careful hands of my client for the last 17 years and is reluctantly the business is being offered for sale so they can enjoy a well deserved retirement. Since ownership they have continually refurbished and invested in new fixtures & fittings which are all bought and paid for and included within the sale price which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated requiring no staff and has an annual turnover of £56,128 with a GP of £52,444 returning a modest adjusted net profit of £41,521. All rooms are en-suite except one, with gas central heating, flat screen TVs and complementary tea & coffee making facilities. Room tariffs range from £30 for a single to £80 for a family room per night on a B&B basis. We believe that there is further potential to increase trade should you wish as our client chooses to operate this at a gentle pace to trade under the VAT threshold. In the past they have opened the restaurant for evening meals so there is further scope there. The business enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond and as such has a high level of regular and repeat trade. This is a superb opportunity to purchase an established lifestyle business which is a great base to build upon and as such early viewing is highly recommended as this business is not to be missed.
