Property description

Reference - 46643

Breiview Guest House is an extremely well run business that has been owned by the current proprietors for over 26 years.

Breiview Guest House is situated on the south side of Lerwick. Lerwick is the capital and main port of the Shetland Islands and is located more than 100 miles off the north coast of mainland Scotland, on the east coast of the Shetland Mainland.

The property and business has been expanded to offer a total of 9 en-suite letting bedrooms, all of which have been recently re-furbished to a high standard.

The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire from the tourist trade.

The guest house trades throughout the year and its quality is reflected in the number of reviews on trip advisor, along with a visit Scotland 3 star guesthouse award.

The current vendor, keeps the trading figures beneath the current VAT thresehold. Current year end accounts can be requested after a viewing by genuinely interested parties.

Trading Hours
The business trades all year round.

The business is currently managed by the owners on a day to day basis along with seasonal members of staff.

Building External
The substantial detached property has been extended as the business was successfully expanded.

Building Internal
Entry is from the large parking area to the rear of the building, where a porch provides a useful seating area and leads to the main hall/reception area.

Off the hall is the very spacious and comfortable guest lounge which has a large window area, allowing for lovely views over the bay and beyond.

The guest lounge provides a pleasant place to sit and relax with a feature fire place with an open fire.

The dining room is interlinked and has seating for 20 and also offers guests stunning views.

There is also a fully equipped kitchen, staff toilet and walk-in store.

The letting rooms are provided on a B&B basis, although there is the option of evening meals should new owners wish to offer this as the current owners did previously.

Although all of the bedrooms are currently used by guests, there is plenty of scope for part of the property to be used as owner's accommodation as has been the case in the past.

The letting rooms are split over two levels, on the ground floor are 5 letting rooms all of which are a good size and all boasting full en-suite facilities with WC, shower and wash hand basin. These rooms are currently made up of 2 doubles, two singles and 1 twin.

On the upper floor there is a further 4 letting bedrooms, again finished to the same high standard and made up of 2 doubles and 2 twins.

Residential Accomodation
Although all of the bedrooms are currently used by guests, there is plenty of scope for part of the property to be used as owner's accommodation, as has been the case in the past.

We are advised that the property is freehold.

We have been unable to check this information and advise prospective purchasers to consult their own solicitor for verification.

This is a superb, rarely available lifestyle change opportunity to purchase a well established guest house which offers an all year round trade and excellent profits.
