LOCATION

Situated on Belgrave Road within the very heart of all year busy Torquay, Devon. This location takes advantage of the high influx of tourism coming into the Bay and is ideally positioned within a couple of minutes’ walk to Town Centre, Harbour and Seafront. All local amenities are in the immediate vicinity together with easy access onto all main arterial roads linking Plymouth, Dartmouth, Brixham and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its international airport and M5 motorway connecting all parts of the UK. The local bus and train station are nearby making this location ideal for anybody wishing to use public transport.

BUSINESS

The Belmont Guest House has been owner operated for many years and has earned itself a fine reputation from clients resulting in high repeat custom and subsequent impressive profit. This business prides itself on enviable Trip Advisor and Booking.com reviews which has also contributed to the success which the Belmont now enjoys.

This easily operated business operates for approx. 8 months per year due to lifestyle choice and we, the agents, feel there is tremendous opportunity to expand on this already impressive turnover by simply opening for longer, taking advantage of the extensive client’s database and its online presence. Currently trading with 4 x letting bedrooms together with 2 x self-contained apartments, all this can be managed by one person.
