On taking over the business our clients set out to upgrade and improve Sunbank House and have invested heavily in upgrading and improving the general fabric of the hotel. From installing quality secondary glazing to the front of the property, refurbishing letting bedrooms plus various public areas and also fitting new quality carpeting, the vendors of Sunbank House Hotel have greatly enhanced the overall look and feel of the property. With great care and attention paid to respect the history & quality of this fine period property, the vendors have already enjoyed the benefits of the investment made. Boasting excellent online reviews with TripAdvisor & scoring an impressive 4.8 out of 5, our clients are seeing a large amount of repeat & referral trade visiting the property.
In addition to the extensive upgrading works, our clients have also paid close attention to the overall operation of the business and have put many clever and cost saving measures in place. By doing so, the business is streamlined in its booking systems and is set up perfectly to tap into the ever growing online & social media market place.
Another benefit to the style of operation & layout of the property is that our clients are now able to trade with a real degree of flexibility whilst still generating healthy trading profits. While new owners could operate like our clients currently do as a small boutique style licensed hotel, a new owner, such as a chef could quite easily look to make a real mark in the city as a fine dining restaurant with rooms operation. Or alternatively, an owner has the option of scaling the operation down to a simple bed & breakfast set up. This level of flexibility is one of Sunbank House Hotels unique selling points, rather than either having to be only an “hotel” or “B&B”, a new owner can adjust as and how the market or they require. Our client is offering the business for sale due their wish to retire. Early viewing is highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
