Print this Property

A prime positioned 8 en-suite bedroom guest house for sale which has been successfully owner operated for many years. The business has undergone an impressive refurbishment programme plus a new central heating system and now reached 4/5 star standard. Spacious 2-bedroom owner’s accommodation together with large front lounge/dining room, terraced garden and parking to the rear. This easily operated business benefits from great website, high repeat custom, minutes’ walk to Town Centre and Harbour Front. Deliberately restricted trade because of health reasons and early viewings are highly recommended.

LOCATION

Ideally located just a short walking distance to the picturesque Marina and Harbour of Torquay and the level walk along The Esplanade with lovely views over Torbay to Paignton and Brixham. Also, with the main shopping precinct, Princess Theatre and the Riviera Convention Centre nearby. Right opposite is a beautiful park and this primed positioned guest house is truly ideally located together with commanding views over a lovely park opposite.

BUSINESS

The Ravenswood Guest House has been trading successfully for a number of years and enjoys a high level of repeat custom, top of Booking.com for Torquay and is much enjoyed by visitors and locals alike.  Operated by a husband and wife team over 9 month’s per year but recently the trade has been deliberately restricted because of health reasons which has forced placing this quality establishment on the open market. We the agents feel that there is tremendous scope to expand on the existing turnover figures by utilising the internet further, opening up all letting rooms together with more aggressive advertising.  Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing
