Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established guest house business in Llandridnod Wells, Powys. The four-storey Victorian property was built in 1897 and was established as a guest house in 1987. The business has been in our clients` careful ownership since 2001 and is only now being placed onto the market due to our clients` personal reasons. The business is open all year round and generates a turnover in the region of £32,000, with a gross profit of approximately 80%. The business offers 7 en-suite letting rooms on a bed and breakfast only basis, along with 2-bedroom owners’ accommodation.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover with a small marketing campaign to advertise the business and the services offered. The business already has an excellent website in place with online booking facilities to promote the business and accommodation. All the letting rooms are well presented, well equipped and maintained to a very high standard. The property boasts a spacious 10 cover breakfast/dining room, which could be utilised to offer residents evening meals.
The two bedroom owners` accommodation is on the lower ground floor and consists of two bedrooms, utility room, bathroom and laundry/boiler room. We are advised that a brand new boiler and central heating system has been installed with an 8 year guarantee. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, possible a husband and wife team, to take this already well-established and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The business is owner run and managed.
The business is open all year round.
