Hilton Smythe are delighted to present to the market the successful Magee's B&B and Café business with ground floor cafe to the market.

Established by our client in 2003, the business is only offered to market to allow our client to retire.

Established as a town centre bed and breakfast, our client added a large cafe to the ground floor which was a popular town centre cafe serving breakfasts, coffee, tea and a variety of cold drinks. Fayre includes lunchtime specials, hot and cold sandwiches and much more. Frequented visited by locals, builders and B&B guests.

Due to the success of the letting side of the business our client has stopped trading the café. This large cafe could be re-opened by any new owner and could be upgraded to include an evening bistro or restaurant business.

Specialising in the affordable B&B accommodation the business always enjoyed repeat business from contractors and families visiting the area, as a result the local authorities approached our client to house families and individuals who have found themselves homeless. Therefore, a successful and profitable 'HMO' business is now presented to the market.

The business enjoys a mixture of long term guests to short term guests for a few nights.
