Hilton Smythe are delighted to introduce to the market Sea View, an exceptional guest house in the seaside resort of Blackpool. The guest house has been established for 30+ years and has been under the careful control of our clients for the previous 12 years. Our clients are now looking to retire and move closer to their family.
This immaculate 10-bedroom guest house really stands out from the crowd, due to its substantial decoration, presentation, bespoke lighting and furniture. Throughout the years our clients have spent time and money running the guest house and have maintained and modernization each room to a high specification. The detail of each room gives a warm and homely feel to the customers. It also boasts a well presented 20+ cover breakfast room. Beautifully decorated throughout the building.
The guest house enjoys a great deal of regular, repeat custom which is testimony to the unrivalled service it offers to guests. Moreover, the business comes very well reviewed on independent websites such as TripAdvisor.
Our clients have recently been running the business to suit their circumstances and lifestyle, therefore there is plenty of scope to improve turnover and profits, i.e. advertising and taking bookings such as couples and families. Further, the business would benefit from an enthusiastic owner taking charge of a marketing campaign and utilizing free marketing tools such as social media, websites and further development and optimization of the hotels current website. Also joining booking sites such as Trivago and booking.com.
Naturally we would recommend early viewing of this fantastic concern.
Sea View guest house is ideally located within the popular seaside town of Blackpool, on the North Shore in Lancashire. The business is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses and just a 10 minute walk away from the famous Blackpool Tower, therefore the hotel benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as on and off street car parking facilities close by.
Blackpool is a tourist hotspot with visitors to the town throughout the year with many attractions such as the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower and of course Blackpool Illuminations. The town has an estimated population of 142,000 residents, and a population density that makes it the fourth most densely populated borough of England and Wales outside Greater London.
The area of the business is well served by the public transport system, with bus stops within easy walking distance of the property, as well as the famous Blackpool trams, which run along Queens Promenade. The nearest railway station is Blackpool North, which is less than 5 minute walk. The area also has excellent road connections, with the A583 (Preston New Road) being within easy driving distance, which links to the M55 and the motorway network. Lytham St Annes is approximately 6 miles away and Preston is 17 miles away.
The sale of the guest house includes everything the business needs, our clients will be taking only their personal belonging, therefore the new owner is able to commence trading straight away.
