Print this Property

A stunningly located and profitable 15 ensuite bedroom, 4 star hotel for sale, with beautiful sea & coastal views over Lyme Bay and beyond, offering Bed & Breakfast with the option of an Evening Meal. Situated on the sought after Babbacombe Downs in Torquay with its own special seafront, beaches with cliff railway promenade, cafes, pubs and theatre, great sea and coastal walks, as well as the famous Model Village, sea fishing, golf and of course shopping in St.Marychurch Village. All are very close to the hotel and all within easy access to Torquay town centre, harbour and seafront.

LOCATION

Torquay have long been one of the UK favourite choices to holiday and enjoy a quality life. The iconic palm trees, busy harbour, international marina not forgetting the milder climate could fool you into thinking you were in the Mediterranean. This all year-round resort also benefits from top shows at the Princess Theatre or a huge choice of festivals and events. The Coombe Court Hotel is on the sought after and beautiful “Babbacombe Downs” Torquay which, has the highest cliff top promenade in England and on a clear day you can see right across to Portland Bill in Dorset. It’s the perfect place to relax and gaze out to sea.  The location is flat and within easy access to town centre, seafront and harbour.

During the 1800s our most famous visitor was the Victorian clergyman, naturalist and author Charles Kingsley, who stayed in the region for some time. A Blue Plaque commemorates the Rev Charles Kingsley at Coombe Court, where he resided in 1854.

BUSINESS

The hotel has been successfully operated by a husband and wife team for many years on B&B or BB&EMeal basis, which suits their lifestyle, and whilst there is a well-equipped bar this is rarely operated, however, the distinct advantage of having a license enables the owners to sell wine, beer and champagne to their customers and for special events. The hotels commercial kitchen is large and extensively equipped to the envy of many chefs and because of this, the opportunity presents itself to possibly operate outside catering or a tea room in the beautiful gardens to front as well from one of the many indoor reception rooms which, would only further enhance the already impressive turn over. Our client’s bookings are solely reliant on repeat custom, local tourist board advertising and do not utilise online booking sites. Because of this we the agents feel there is tremendous scope to promote the hotel online e.g. Booking.com etc., taking advantage of both the quality of the hotel and unique location on offer.  Trading accounts will be made available following a formal successful viewing.
