Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this stunning, guest house business with an enviable reputation.

Hopehill Guest House had been trading for over 30 years under the ownership of our clients, but recently hasn’t been trading due to other commitments of the current owners and only now is being offered for sale as it’s our clients desire to retire from the industry.

The business has an excellent reputation with guests for the high-quality service and excellent accommodation, which has resulted in a loyal client base and has given the business a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals resulting in bookings from all four corners.

Hopehill is popular with tourists, golf & wedding parties, walkers, business people, one off weekend breaks and contractors

Over the last few years the guest house itself has been very well maintained and can now be found in great condition throughout.

Turnover is generated by offering 6 letting rooms over the first and second floors. Located On the first floor you will find 3 spacious rooms, with double and single beds, all of these rooms further benefit from having en-suite facilities.

One of the letting rooms benefits from having a feature conservatory sitting room offering views over the town of Hawick and the well-maintained mature gardens. Located on the second floor you will find a further three letting rooms, these rooms comprise two twin rooms and one single.

The rooms on the second floor share a shower room and WC. All rooms are well presented and come with TV and hospitality tray.

The property benefits from substantial owners accommodation in the form of:
• Private lounge with bay window
• Open fire place
• Generous double bedroom
• Shower room
• Extensive dining area
• Kitchen

There is scope to increase turn over with the introduction of online partner booking sites, perhaps national press marketing to attract and grow the weekend break experience.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this exciting business opportunity to the next level.

Viewing is highly recommended to fully appreciate.
