This character stone building, reflective of a Scottish country hotel, offers an attractive frontage in a standout position amongst Havelock shops on the state highway between Nelson, Marlborough and the Picton ferries.
Operating primarily as a licensed restaurant, there is a bar, a well-equipped kitchen and a range of dining spaces, from intimate corners to larger party tables, a spacious mezzanine area, ideal for service groups, corporates and family functions plus an extensive deck.
Sitting at tables on the deck, under umbrellas if you want, the outlook is an attractive elevated view over active playing fields to the Havelock marina. Always interesting, the marina is home to hundreds of pleasure craft and boats providing services to Pelorus and Kenepuru Sounds, holiday homes and fishing grounds, as well as salmon and greenlip mussel farms for which the area is world famous.
A healthy business has been established providing an array of delicious local wines, beer, produce and seafood to tourists travelling through, visitors to and from the Sounds and a strong local market. Expansion and fine tuning could boost turnover even more.
The owners are happy to sell the whole operation, land, building and business but would also sell the business alone with a lease. We have been asked to present all offers. This is an appealing opportunity for anyone with an interest in hospitality to cash in on a rapidly growing tourist market.
