DEAN WILLIAMS AND RICHARD CHAN took over Cranborne Guest Accommodation in Belgrave Road, Torquay in 2011
WHEN we decided that we wanted to change our lives and career in 2009, we looked at many different options including purchasing a business in our native Northumberland but also considered Spain, Brighton and the Lake District. We were new to running a hotel but had been involved in hospitality and customer services for over 20 years.
However, we remembered how much we liked Torquay and visited again in 2010 and were once again enamoured with this splendid part of the country.
Torquay is a wonderful place to live, we like nothing more than being able to step out the front door and walk to the beach, the town centre or the South West Coast path, there are so many wonderful places to visit, all made better by the fact that most days here on the English Riviera are blessed with decent weather!
We looked at many properties in Torquay and settled on Cranborne as it gave us the opportunity to put our own stamp on a guest house and do things the way that we wanted, we spent a considerable sum of money on Cranborne to raise it to its current Visit Britain 4-star standard and have achieved many superb recommendations and awards.

We have worked closely with Bettesworths over the last three years and we have to commend them on not only their professionalism but also their expertise, helpfulness, service and friendliness.
We feel that there has never been a better time to purchase a commercial property in the Bay as there are many competitively priced properties for sale or lease.
Many experienced hoteliers are now looking to move upwards as it is such a good time to buy.
Commercial mortgages are still available but it is essential that as a buyer you have a decent deposit and that you purchase a business with a good turnover but which, is also competitively priced.
Torquay attracts a high number of visitors and generates all year round trade, even though the Winter months are quieter it is still possible to earn an income, unlike many tourist resorts which shut down in Winter.
Torquay has the benefit of the Riviera International Conference Centre that holds events all year round and the Princess Theatre attracting excellent shows and artists which is generating visitors to the area throughout the year.
It is an excellent time to buy commercial property and it is wonderful living in Torbay, we highly recommend it!
