Print this Property

A beautiful guest house with 9 en-suite letting rooms with potential to add an additional letting room. Millbrook is ideally situated for tourists visiting Torquay, Devon and is within walking distance of the restaurants, harbour and beach. This profitable guest house has recently upgraded all their rooms to a high standard and have large windows which make them feel bright and spacious. The property also has a guest lounge, spacious dining room and lower ground floor which could be used as additional owner’s accommodation, granny annex, holiday apartment, Airbnb or a bar / games room as it is now. There is already a spacious 1 bedroomed owners’ accommodation with its own garden with garden room and separate patio to the side. To the front

LOCATION

The Millbrook Guest House is located upon entering Torquay and is ideally situated for the bus and main-line railway station, also benefitting from high passing trade.  The main beach, harbour and local restaurants are just a short level walk away through the pleasant gardens of Torre Abbey.  Torquay is probably the most popular seaside holiday destination in the UK at present and has excellent road links to the M5 motorway linking all parts of the UK. Nearby, is an International airport offering flights to European and worldwide destinations, and not forgetting Dartmoor National park, only a short drive away.

 

BUSINESS
The guest house has been successfully operated by a husband and wife team for many years on a bed and breakfast only basis and has earned itself a fine reputation with excellent trip advisor feedback and high repeat custom. The business is open for approximately 10 months per year due to lifestyle choice, but could easily trade profitably all year round to greatly improve the already impressive trading accounts. The lower ground floor could easily convert to additional letting accommodation which could be a holiday let / Air BnB. This turn-key guesthouse comes with a comprehensive hand over to ensure the continued success. Full accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
