Established 4 Star Gold Guest House – For Sale – First Time In Over 34 Years


UK property firm Graham + Sibbald are delighted to bring to the market, Gifford House, 103 Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5AJ for the first time in over 34 years.

The Gifford House is an attractive Victorian terraced property which is superb, prominent location in southside Edinburgh on one of Edinburgh’s main southerly arterial routes – Dalkeith Road – in a delightful and popular area. Gifford House is just over a mile south of the city centre, ensuring ease of accessibility to many of Edinburgh’s most popular historical, cultural and entertainment venues.

Gifford House is a well-established guest house, awarded 4-Star Gold Guest House from Scottish Tourist Board, and has 7 Letting Bedrooms (all ensuite), Breakfast Room and includes Owner’s Accommodation of Spacious Living Room; 2-bedrooms; 2 Bathrooms and has a private rear garden.

Gifford House is being sold by David & Margaret Dow who have owned and successfully run the business for over 34 years; currently operating, through personal choice, on a very limited occupancy and trading period to suit their own circumstances.  Retirement from the trade now looms triggering the sale of Gifford House.

Alistair Letham, a Hotel + Leisure Consultant with Graham + Sibbald, commented, “The availability of Gifford House is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a quality small guest house business in a prominent position and close to city centre location. The business has provided the sellers an ideal home and profitable, “life-style”, business. As retirement approached the hotel has purposely traded at below the VAT threshold level; but there is undoubted scope and potential to expand and grow the business trading on a full 12-month annual period and full occupancy, for which there is a demand.”.

Graham + Sibbald are inviting “Offers around £1,200,000” for Gifford House, Edinburgh.
