Property description

Situated in a prime position, adjacent to the famous Grand Pier, The Seaton Restaurant & Hotel boasts a superb ‘top drawer’ opportunity for the investor to purchase a piece of Weston-super-Mare's golden seafront and square frontage.


The handsome freehold property boasts incredible period architecture and is situated in an enviable position, from which the current owners have relished the passing footfall of vast numbers of tourists that visit the town for day trips and seaside holidays for the past 40 years, as well as their recurring local customers. Expanding over three storeys with extensive storage space, this exciting prospect offers a licenced bar and welcoming restaurant with circa 80 covers internally, two ‘Al Fresco’ trading areas with circa 26 covers on a private terrace, plus an additional 10 tables via a 'sitting out' license. The restaurant space is most versatile with South facing windows overlooking the Pier, beach and coastline which allow an abundance of natural light to fill the room. Customer toilets are located to the rear, along with a well-equipped commercial kitchen and food prep area, with a walk-in refrigeration and freezer room, dry store, a separate lounge/storage room, office room and bathroom which could easily be used as staff accommodation. A lockable door leads into the ground floor hallway of the 11 letting rooms and a second, separate entrance door for the letting part of the building is also accessed via Richmond Street. From the hallway, twin stair flights rise to the upper floors and the 11 rooms; 10 with en-suite facilities and 1 with its own bathroom. In addition, there are 3 shared kitchens. These rooms are currently being used for short-term lettings by the existing owner. This magnificent property offers a wealth of opportunities and significant potential for change of use or development, as you wish (subject to the relevant planning permission and building regulation approval) therefore viewing is highly recommended by the agent. Commercial EPC Rating B50, Council Tax Band A, Business Rates may apply.


Weston-super-Mare is steeped with Victorian history and is dominated by long stretches of sandy beaches. The seaside town has been a popular tourist destination for many years and sits to the South of the Severn Estuary and Bristol Channel. The beginning of the 19th century saw Weston grow from a tiny village of around 100 inhabitants, to a thriving seaside resort of nearly 20,000 people. One hundred years later again, it has a population of over 70,000 with its local attractions, including the Grand Pier, bringing in thousands of visitors each year. Weston is certainly a popular tourist destination for many families and is easily accessible for visitors and commuters; Junctions 21/22 provide easy access to the M5 motorway. Weston train station offers excellent transport links to most major towns and cities, and the bus service provides connection to most areas of the town and outlying districts.
