Premises Details:

the swiss cottage is a long established family run business which currently has 8 letting rooms and has potential to increase this by a further two rooms by reducing the currently used owner’s accommodation.

the property dates from 1866 and has been extended and altered over the years and in our opinion has attractive painted elevations under a slate roof. the accommodation throughout is offered in good tasteful decorative condition with the windows being upvc double glazed replacement units and the whole property is warmed by gas fired central heating.

it is very well situated in a quiet road which is mid-way between the town centre and the cliff-path and the benefit of both of these facilities being only about a 300 yard walk each way. the attractive and popular old village area of the town is only about ½ a mile walk as are the lovely safe sandy beaches that shanklin offers together with all the associated tourist attractions. the hotel’s location is ideally suited for those travelling with or without a vehicle and it also features some off-road parking for 6 cars.

as can be seen from the hotel’s website, the business has earned many tourism awards over the years and it currently has a four star rating for guest accommodation with visit england, it has a 2018 certificate of excellence on trip advisor and been voted in the 2018 travellers choice and placed 21st in the uk. the hotel has a silver breakfast award and is currently rated fourth best hotel out of 52 in shanklin.

in our opinion this business offers an excellent opportunity for someone wishing to make their first venture into the hospitality trade as it comes with a well established trade (the current owner’s open from april to october) on b&b basis.

we believe that there is scope to increase the trade by opening longer as the present owners keep the trading to under the vat threshold.

we would thoroughly recommend an internal viewing to appreciate the features of this licensed hotel, we have copies of the profit and loss account for the last four years available for seriously interested applicants. please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions about the property covered in these sales details. it comprises:-
