Annual Turnover: £250,000
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and very popular hotel business, which is ideally located in Douglas, Isle of Man.
The business was established by our clients in 1988 and is only now being offered to the market due to our clients’ unfortunate health problems and desire for a well-deserved retirement.
The business operates all year round with a 24/7 bar licence and generates a turnover in the region of £250,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 60%.
Our clients offer 67 guest bedrooms on a bed and breakfast only basis. There are a variety of comfortable en-suite rooms and rooms with private bathrooms to suit both business and leisure travellers to the island. Standard bedrooms feature a desk, bed linen and ironing facilities upon request. Basic rooms include bed linen and ironing facilities upon request. Some also benefit from a private bathroom with free toiletries.
Our clients also offer a full selection of breakfasts, from cereal to English breakfasts. Guests with special dietary requirements can also be catered for.
The ground floor of the property offers a spacious reception area. The property is very well maintained, decorated to a very high standard and extremely well fitted out to suit the trade.
The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the accommodation and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by embarking on a modest marketing campaign, to highlight the accommodation offered. A new owner could also introduce evening meals for the guests and maybe the general public.
The business already has a very informative website in place to promote the business at www.trevelyanhotel.co.uk, which incorporates online booking facilities.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership, to take this already thriving business to the next level, therefore, early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
The Trevelyan Hotel occupies substantial seven storey premises, ideally located within the town of Douglas on the Isle of Man. The hotel is located on Palace Terrace, overlooking Queens Promenade and is surrounded by a wealth of complementary businesses, therefore benefiting from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade.
The business further benefits from good car parking facilities to the front of the premises.
Douglas is the capital and largest town of the Isle of Man. It is located at the mouth of the River Douglas, and on a sweeping bay of two miles. The town serves as the main hub for business, finance, legal services, shipping, transport, shopping and entertainment. The annual Isle of Man TT Races start and finish in Douglas.
Douglas Promenade features the world’s oldest horse drawn trams.
