Cambria Hotel32 Esplanade RoadPaigntonDevonTQ4 6BLView Map

A stunningly located 26-bedroom hotel for sale, in the picturesque seaside resort of Paignton, Devon. The property boasts all en-suite bedrooms, many with stunning sea views, a spacious three-bedroom owners’ apartment, parking, a lift to all floors, two entrances, gardens and is in good condition. This easily operated business is now on the market due to retirement. A full handover/training will be provided to ensure continued success. Given its layout, number of rooms and location, our clients would consider a 'subject to planning' deal for potential re-purposing. Early viewings are highly recommended.

The hotel sits on Paignton seafront, with unobstructed views of the sea and the beautiful Torbay. Opposite, there are safe sandy beaches and Paignton Pier. Within minutes’ walk, there are restaurants, bars, local amenities and a pretty harbour surrounded by tearooms & eateries. The Cambria is among the first hotels upon arriving in Paignton and is within easy walking distance of the local rail & bus station. Additionally, it offers convenient access to the main arterial motorway connecting all parts of Devon and beyond.

This family-operated hotel has been in business for over 35 years and is now on the market due to retirement. Operating mainly with part-time staff as required, has effectively kept costs down. Though our clients choose to close in the winter season, there’s ample demand to remain open. The hotel primarily attracts large parties, resulting in an impressive turnover and subsequent high net profit. However, we the agents, believe there’s an opportunity to convert it into self-contained holiday letting units, a smaller upmarket boutique establishment, or even a ground-floor restaurant with rooms above. Actual trading accounts will be available after a successful formal viewing.
