Description Bruce and Co are delighted to introduce to the market Commodore Guest House which is perfectly situated in the main town, Rothesay, on the Island of Bute. This carefully-maintained building, dating from the 1800s, combines original features with all round modern comforts and décor. The quality of the guest house is reflected in the number of positive reviews received on websites such as Trip Advisor. The business has been placed on the market due to the current proprietors’ impending wish to retire.
Our client has carried out extensive renovation and refurbishment during the past 5 years in which Commodore Guest house has been under their ownership. The business is a well-performing and profitable guest house currently being run at a pace which is comfortable for the existing owner, yet still has much potential to grow income further. Commodore Guest House enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its ideal location being only a short stroll from Rothesay Pier and the town centre.
