Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market the family run The Gallery Guest House in Whitby.
This lovely property has been owned by our clients for 37 years and was refurbished and refitted by our clients to a very high standard before it was opened as a Guest House in 2000.
Unfortunately, our clients are reluctantly forced to sell due to retirement.
There are 5 letting rooms and an owner's suite set over 4 floors. All rooms have en-suite facilities except a single guest room which has the benefit of a private bathroom and WC.
All guest rooms are beautifully made up with colour coordinated furnishings, flat screen TVs, good quality furniture, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities.
The premises are fully carpeted throughout and all en-suites are fully tiled.
The business is run at a pace to suit and so present turnover is far less than can be realistically achieved by fully committed new owners.
The owners currently do not take bookings online or through agencies. The only bookings are repeats, forward bookings or occasionally at the door step.
The business is exceptionally clean and tidy.
It is believed further growth can be achieved by marketing, advertising, offers and online bookings.
This is a tremendous opportunity for a new owner to buy and develop a lovely Guest House.
TENUREWe are advised that the premises are of Freehold tenure.
HOURSThe business operates all year round.
STAFFThe business is run by the owners only.
FINANCIAL PROFILEWe are advised that current turnover is approximately £25,000 per annum.
The business is presently exempt from business rates but subject to the payment of council tax of £1,161 per annum.
