Investor Required for Boutique Hotel in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria

Location: Abbey Road, Barrow in Furness, Cumbria, UK

Name: The Duke of Cambridge 

No. of Keys: 24

The Property: An old Victorian house, acquired by our clients in 2018, who have secured planning consent to convert into a 24 room hotel over three upper floors, with restaurant and bar on the ground floor. The two partners have invested £1.2m thus far. The investment need will allow them to continue the refurb process to be open before the end of 2020.

Once open the partners will aim to refinance the hotel, at which stage the investor can remain in for the long-term or exit.

The owners undertook detailed market research in to the opportunities in the area before acquiring the property – including feedback from the Tourist Board on the expected increase in occupancy in the area and the lack of suitable accommodation
The attractions to Barrow are:
• Its’ location in the Lake District – and the number of tourists visiting the area
• The recent award of the Astute boat MOD contract and the creation of jobs
• The lack of a high- quality hotel in the area

The property is located at 90 Abbey Road in Furness with close- proximity to the Railway Station and Walney Island Airport which is just 5km away

The owners are of the view that there is high demand in the area for:
• High quality accommodation for tourists, ship workers / families
• Excellent restaurant with dance floor for residents, functions and local people
• An all – day coffee / tea lounge
