A wonderfully located 8/10 letting bedroom guesthouse in the popular tourist area of Belgrave Road which is ideally situated for easy access to the seafront, marina and town centre. It has undergone a rolling programme of improvement and now presented to an overall high contemporary standard. It is currently operated by a husband and wife team who choose to trade over 10 months per year so as to avoid breaking the VAT threshold. It benefits from flexible 4 bedroom owner’s accommodation together with a delightful patio with seating to the front, parking to rear. Early viewings are highly recommended.

LOCATION

Situated on Belgrave Road within the very heart of the all year busy Torquay, Devon. This location takes advantage of the high influx of tourism coming into the Bay and which 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 also nearby making this location ideal for anybody wishing to use public transport which is on an increase.

BUSINESS

The Belmont Guest House has been owner operated for many years and earned itself a fine reputation by its clients which has resulted in high repeat custom and subsequent impressive profit. This easily operated business operates for approx. 9/10 months per year because of lifestyle choice and we the agents feel there is tremendous opportunity to expand on its already impressive turnover by simply opening for longer, taking advantage of its extensive client’s database and its online presence. Currently trading with 8 letting bedrooms because of lifestyle choice but because of flexible owners’ accommodation, the letting could be extended to 11 letting rooms. This guest house prides itself on enviable Trip Advisor and Booking.Com reviews which has also contributed to the success which the Belmont now enjoys.
