Ref: 7488

  • 0.00 ft² (0.00 m²)
  • 1,600,000



• Redeveloped from an original Victorian Hotel named the Combes the Royal Hotel was substantially extended and remodeled in the 1960’s to create an impressive 100 bedroom building with extensive facilities and 35 bedroom staff block. The building has an impressive footprint within a circa 2 acres plot that is tiered on three levels to provide the hotel and associated parking areas. The hotel, whilst showing an impressive turnover, trades quietly with 25% coaching trade and the remaining 75% through private business from which 50% comes from OTA’s. The current owner’s, whilst maintaining the fabric of the building, have not been in a position to inject the capital needed to bring the hotel up to modern day standards for which there is clear indication of a ready, willing and able customer base at much higher room rates.

  • Various public rooms to include guest lounges, bar, restaurant (200 covers), and function suite

Woolacombe lies on the North Devon coast between Croyde and Ilfracombe in the parish of Morthoe. It is a long well regarded and popular beach destination with a 3 mile sandy beach, much favoured by surfers. The beach has been recognaised a number of times in National Awards as Britain’s best beach. The village population swells considerably in the warmer months. Access is along the South West Coastal path and via Barnstaple (M5 Junction 27 is circa 50 miles).
The hotel itself occupies a prominent position on the approach to the beach and has elevated views over the surrounding National Trust countryside and the coast line.
