Tower House Executive Guest House has just been awarded the HotelsCombined Recognition of Excellence Award for 2020.

This award is a recognition for consistently achieving the highest standards of customer satisfaction worldwide. The Award is not a ranking list but a group of outstanding accommodations chosen based on a strict set of criteria.

Tower House Executive Guest House received 203 reviews, resulting in an incredible score of 9.7 out of 10.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the area for the very high quality of the accommodation and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is massive scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours and offering accommodation all year round. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to advertise the business. The guest house already has an excellent website in place to promote the business at , as well as having excellent reviews on the popular travel website Trip Advisor and a page on the social media website Facebook.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner, perhaps a husband and wife team or partnership to take this already thriving business to the next level; therefore, early discussions with Enfields must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
