Ambassador Guest House23 Sands RoadPaigntonDevonTQ4 6EGView Map

A wonderful, well-presented 6-bedroom guest house is available for sale, situated only a stone's throw from the beaches, harbour, and town centre. It boasts a large car park, garden with a summer house and spacious 3-bedroom owners’ accommodation. The letting accommodation has undergone a refurbishment program. The dining room is generously sized and extends into a guest lounge with a smaller bar area. This successfully owner-operated business, does not require any staff and operates only part of the year, allowing our clients the opportunity to travel extensively abroad. A full handover will be provided to ensure a smooth transition and continued success. Early viewings are highly recommended.

The Ambassador Guest House is ideally located in a prime trading position within the bustling coastal town of Paignton, Devon. Situated on Sands Road, it is minutes away from the beach, harbour, town centre, rail and bus stations. Additionally, it enjoys convenient access to the cities of Plymouth and Exeter, with the M5 motorway and international airport. Torquay is a short distance away and Dartmoor National Park is also within reach.

This highly profitable business, successfully owner-operated for many years, garners a high rate of repeat custom and is favoured by both visitors and locals. While the business currently operates for only part of the year due to lifestyle choices, we the agents believe there is significant potential to further enhance its already impressive turnover and subsequent net profit. Actual trading figures will be made available upon a successful formal viewing.
