Please quote reference B05501
Hilton Smythe are delighted to welcome to the market this well-established hotel business with an enviable reputation. Braeriach Hotel has been trading from this location for over 130 years and has been under the ownership of our clients for the last 15 years and only now is being offered for sale due to our client’s desire to retire from the industry and their ill health.
The business has an outstanding reputation with guests for the high-quality service, excellent accommodation and delicious cuisine, which has resulted in a loyal client base, with a lot of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals all resulting in some great trip advisor & google reviews.
The business attracts bookings from all four corners of the globe with many of these being repeat visitors and is popular with tourists, golfers, walkers, businesspeople, one off weekend breaks & further sporting fraternity.
Over the last few years the guest house itself has undergone a programme of refurbishment and can now be found in great condition throughout.
The turnover is generated by offering 10 guest rooms, 6 of which have en-suite facilities with the others having shared bathrooms, with many of the guest rooms benefiting from superb countryside views. There is potential to increase the number of rooms as the top floor is currently used as owner’s accommodation.
It must be noted that there is a self-contained 2-bedroom flat that is currently under renovation that would be ideal for use as owner’s accommodation or even as a further Air B&B option. In addition, there is also a 1-bedroom bedsit style apartment above the kitchen.
The current owners also have planning permission in place for further development to the rear of the building to include several 2 bed apartments.
The premises are in excellent general condition having undergone a substantial programme of refurbishment over the past couple of years and is maintained to a great standard throughout.
we feel that this is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this popular business to the next level.
There is scope to further increase turn over with the introduction of more online partner booking sites, & perhaps national press marketing to attract & grow the weekend break experience.
A tremendous opportunity to own this highly desirable turnkey business that does not require massive capital investment, and early enquiries must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
Accounts will be made available post viewing.
