Seayr Hotel, Lincolnshire, PE24 5TL
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established guest house business set within the popular village of Chapel St. Leonards, Lincolnshire. The business was established in the 1970s and has been in our clients careful ownership since 2006. Only now is the business being offered to the market due to our clients other interests. The business operates all year round and generates a turnover in the region of £40,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 88%. The turnover is generated from the letting of 7 guest rooms, most of which offer en-suite facilities, as well as a traditional English breakfast. The property is well presented and maintained throughout. The premises also boasts private owner’s accommodation and a commercial kitchen. The business has built up an enviable reputation for the high quality accommodation offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with an excellent volume of repeat trade, as well as word of mouth referrals. The business has received excellent reviews on the travel website Trip Advisor. We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign to highlight the business and the excellent services offered. There is also scope to offer evening meals, as this was offered before and proved popular. A new owner could also open the bar and restaurant to the general public. The business already has a website in place, which could be updated and incorporate online booking facilities. This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team, to take this popular business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
