Great Guest House For Sale In Plymouth
Business overviewWe are selling due to wanting to take early retirement and also health reasons. There is a large customer base of both business and tourist clientele and many repeat customers.
The business has achieved a healthy turnover all through the recession years and could easily have reached VAT level and beyond, but we decided not to employ any staff and to keep it at a manageable level for us. With more energetic owners, some additional marketing and using online booking extra sales could easily be achieved.
Also the property when purchased was tired and dated, so a lot of the profit has been reinvested to bring the business up to a very good standard.
