Ideally located Guest House in Torquay

Brooklands, 5 Scarborough Road, Torquay, Devon, TQ2 5UJ

A wonderfully located 5/6-bedroom guest house for sale, successfully run, maintained and upgraded by the current owners for the last 11 years. Brooklands has established a solid reputation amongst the major web travel agents with consistently high ratings and guest bookings, with high levels of repeat custom. Currently running on 5 double rooms (with an option for 6) with twin, family and suite options to maximise sales revenue and guest appeal/choice. The property benefits good private owners' accommodation, south facing front garden, rear car park and being only a few minutes' walk to the sea front and town centre....


LOCATION

Brooklands Guest House is ideally located close to ‘Belgravia’ one of Torquay’s most busy commercial tourist districts.  Benefiting from this wonderfully central and yet quiet location within only minutes’ walk to both Town Centre and ever beautiful Sea Front of Torquay. The local train and bus station are nearby together with easy access to all main arterial road links linking major cities like Plymouth and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport and M5 motorway connecting all parts of the UK.

 

BUSINESS

At present Brooklands Guest House is only operating on a B&B basis without the need of staff and only trading over a 10 month period.  Currently running on 5 letting rooms (owner choice), there is scope for a 6th letting room on the ground floor which would extend the appeal to guests as well as catering for those with limited mobility.  We feel that due to the presents owner’s deliberate restrictive trading practice, there is great scope to improve the already impressive turnover which will be made available subject to a successful formal viewing appointment.
