Capital guest house on market

AN Edinburgh guest house is on the market for the first time in 20 years.

Located on Spence Street, Gil Dun guest house comprises eight letting bedrooms and a breakfast room; the property also has off-street parking and a private garden to the rear.

The guest house is described as occupying an excellent location in a quiet cul-de-sac off Dalkeith Road around a mile south of the city centre.

Alistair Letham, consultant at property firm Graham & Sibbald, which is marketing Gil Dun with a price tag of offers around £950,000, said it represents a “fantastic opportunity to purchase a truly quality guest house business”.

“The business currently trades profitably on seven-month annual trading – by choice of the owners – and, therefore, has great potential to grow the business operating on a full 12-month opening, for which there is the demand,” he said.
