Diversified Accommodation Business For Sale
This is a great opportunity to obtain a consistently profitable accommodation business in thriving Timaru - the second largest city in Canterbury.

This strategically located, substantial accommodation complex has a long track-record of catering for the budget-conscious visitor. Situated in a prime site on the main road (Evans St, State Highway 1) on the Northern side of the Timaru town centre, the Anchor Motel & Timaru Backpackers enjoys steady business from a mix of tourists, business-people, families and groups. Featuring 11 units, 3 separate houses and a 7-bedroom hostel it can cater to a wide range of needs.
The buildings are well maintained to an appropriate standard, with recent renovations and redecoration of most of the units.
The main motel site has a double frontage extending through to Trafalgar street at the rear. This locality is handy to all amenities and has the highest concentration of accommodation providers in Timaru. The property is only 500 metres from Caroline Bay, 250 metres from the new Aquatic Centre, 600 metres from Northtown Mall and 800 metres from the town centre.
