A former hotel located a short walk from Torquay Harbour offering Nine bedrooms with six being en-suite. It is Grade II Listed and was commissioned for the Admiralty in 1881. There is a wealth of character on offer with an incredible stairway rising over two floors
There is parking to the front of the property and a lawned garden to the rear. Whilst the Seapoint Hotel is still trading, there has been minimal business due to the imminent retirement of the owners and this is an ideal opportunity for a new owner to expand the business either as a guest house or other uses, development (Subject to the necessary planning approvals) A very deceptive property that must be viewed internally to be fully appreciated.

THE SEAPOINT HOTEL This character property has come to market simply because the owners wish to retire. Situated in a superb spot not far from the Harbour in Torquay, the Seapoint Hotel, has been operating for some years although of recent years they haven't pushed the business due to their imminent retirement.

The property is brimming with character, starting with the fabulous entrance way and reception, with an amazing staircase which has a continuous bannister, leading up two floors. There are wonderful high ceilings with ornate cornice details. The Lounge to the rear of the property is a tremendous space with an original fireplace and marble surround, having French doors leading out to the rear garden.

There are two further floors with various bedrooms, mostly offering en-suite facilities and a lower ground floor which brings together a breakfast dining room, lounge area and bar which has been fitted out in quirky style and includes a juke box and fruit machine. The kitchen and utility room to the rear are well fitted with all the practical items one needs.

Well located, within the English Riviera, where holidaymakers flock in to visit the 22 miles of stunning beaches and with all the various tourist activities which are a great draw throughout the year. Seapoint Hotel is a short walk to the harbour in Torquay where guests can take the ferry across to Brixham or enjoy the many tourist activities on offer, including Living Coasts with penguins and sea life.
