This proven Hotel, Restaurant & Accommodation business has no shortage of customers, with many regulars.
Viterra hire 10 rooms for 3 months of the year on contract during harvest and have already locked in bookings for coming harvest.
This business would suit a young/middle aged couple with energy. If one of the owners is a cook/chef or willing to cook, that would be a bonus as the restaurant trades well.

Revenue could be further boosted by opening for longer hours and introducing theme nights and a dedicated pizza night, all equipment for doing pizza has been brought and installed in late 2022 yet to be utilized.

The hotel will provide good living quarters for new owners if they wish but this will take 3 months revenue away from profits as Viterra book these rooms for harvest.

This business is a walk-in walk out situation and trading can start on settlement with all you need to continue running a small profitable business.
