This property is located on the Promenade in the sought after area of North Shore. Situated approximately 0.5 mile away from Blackpool Town Centre, it is just a short walk to the shopping areas and tourist attractions.

hotel by train, Blackpool North Train Station is also approximately 0.5 mile away.

Duxburys Commercial are pleased to offer for sale this substantial 30 bedroom hotel located on Blackpool Promenade. The accommodation spans over 5 floors and comprises of a sun lounge, dining room, bar and fully fitted commercial kitchen. The hotel also benefits from a lift, and car parking for approximately 18 vehicles. The current owner purchased the hotel as two separate buildings and developed into one large property. The buildings still retain their own separate utilities so there is potential to convert back to two properties.

There are 3 gas boilers in the property – the owners turn two off at quieter times.  All are fully serviced – one is new (October 2018)

Plumbing is good with no problems.

Electrics are also good.

A new roof was fitted to 90% of the property following storm damage in 2016 – the property is bone dry!  Not many older places in Blackpool can boast that!  The Canasta was originally built in 1863 – we have those old deeds.

Rates payable are in region of £12,500 and a further £1000 for the domestic rates.

Owner is looking for a swift sale.  If you can complete in 28 days you will get a nice reduction on asking price.  If you need a mortgage the owners are happy to hold out for the full asking price of £450k.  (Property was valued at £600,000 by Kenricks in January 2019)
