Bruce and Co. Are delighted to offer for sale Aynetree Guest House, a well-presented Guest House situated in Edinburgh. Aynetree Guest House provides bed and breakfast accommodation in a commanding detached Victorian property with elegant interior making the business unique and an attractive offering for prospective buyers. The business has been under the very caring ownership of our clients for 12 years during which time they have carefully carried out substantial refurbishments throughout the entire property to a very good standard. They are reluctantly offering the business to the market due to family commitments. Aynetree Guest House enjoys a good turnover and not only provides the owners with an excellent source of income but also a wonderful home. The property truly is superbly presented and can only be appreciated in full by viewing. The business enjoys high occupancy levels for the 9 months in which it trades. Marketing is carried out through the business’ own website at Aynetree Guest House trades well but still has potential to increase turnover with the potential of trading all year.
