Uplawmoor Hotel owners, Stuart and Emma Peacock, are still investing in their hotel, despite putting the hotel on the market Says Stuart, “Following a very successful year, with a new executive housing development bringing many new regulars to the hotel we can report an increased bar trade and the rooms are also a lot busier. That said we are aware that the selling market for small businesses is currently very slow -even houses in Uplawmoor can take a few years to sell. The marketing exercise is a way of us testing the market, as we have done from time to time, before undertaking a new 10 year plan of future investment.”
The couple who are just about to celebrate 25 years at the helm, are still investing in their business.
Says Stuart, “We have recently put in two super-fast Electric Vehicle Charging Points as part of our larger scale Green commitment and are keen to consider installation of a biomass boiler at the hotel, but of course we wouldn’t rule out a complete retirement from the trade ”
Stuart continues, “We had a few people ask, but we also were thinking about the future and how many people would have hybrid cars.”
The hotel is being marketed by Smith & Clough with offers in the region of £750K sought for the freehold.
