Imagine walking past your hotel's breakfast buffet every morning with the smell of sizzling, salt-cured bacon wafting through the air. You look over at a family and see a mum spread tablespoons of Nutella onto her children's freshly fried, golden French toast, while glasses of freshly squeezed orange juice (from the new juice bar) sit half-full on the table.
Hungry? We are too.
This doesn't have to be a figment of your imagination. You're a lot closer to smelling bacon and seeing children slathered in chocolate than you think.
You could hassle yourself with the bricks and mortar by building a new hotel, but why wait so long to make your dreams a reality? Instead, opt for an already-built hotel which we promise will get the grills going sooner.
Benefits of buying a hotel
The main perks are cost and convenience. Although you'd love to get the key and start moving your guests' suitcases in, there are still a handful of things to sort out, such as: viewing hotels, financing, and negotiating an offer.
However, the convenience that comes with being able to turn the key within a few weeks means that you can get down to the fun stuff, like installing your juice bar, much sooner than you would waiting for cement to dry, dealing with land surveyors and everything that comes with wearing a hard hat.
Then there's the cheaper costs; buying an existing property that's already structured as a hotel means more pennies in your pocket because you're not dealing with land surveyors and contractors. You get to choose where you want to spend your money– and on what.
Buying any of these hotel puts you one step closer to streamlining (and fast tracking) the process of putting the 'welcome' mat at the door and making your guests feels like they're home.
