Turnover 2021 $547k – Central to Eyre Peninsula  

The main meeting place for a large farming area – and the only hotel for 70 km in any direction, this excellent business boasts a main highway location and is central to the popular Eyre Peninsula. 

Originally established in 1932, the current owners purchased the hotel in 2018 and carried out extensive renovations. Situated on the main highway from Kyancutta to Port Lincoln – to capture passing traffic, this is a profitable business with plenty of further growth potential.

This proven Hotel, Restaurant & Accommodation business has no shortage of customers, with many regulars. Viterra hire 6 motel rooms for 3 months of the year on contract during harvest. They will also hire the hotel if not occupied by the owner. 

This business would suit a young/middle aged couple with energy. If one of the owners is a cook/chef, that would be an added bonus as the restaurant trades well.  

Revenue could be further boosted by opening for longer hours and introducing theme nights and a dedicated pizza night. The current owners are retiring but staying in town and will be available to assist with training – as well as being regular customers!
