Thatchems Hotel Overview

Hotel revenues and profit graph

Mark Dewy and Kate Wilson jointly own Thatchems Hotel Limited. The company formed this year to develop a new 25 bedroom establishment in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

The two owners already have two other similar sized boutique hotels in their portfolio. This establishment is an extension and development of the existing brand.

Local Market Trends and Data

Current projections from the local Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Office forecast an increasing demand in accommodation requirements of 34% over the next five years.

The increase in demand is due to several businesses relocating their national headquarters into this area. An increase in "staycations" in this region of the UK sees additional demand for breaks throughout the year.

The Hotel Format

The hotel will have 25 en-suite bedrooms offering both twin and double occupancy. There'll also be a small cocktail bar and restaurant area to provide breakfast and evening meals.

The targeted premises outlined are currently trading as a public house with existing accommodation for 20 rooms. We'll build additional bedrooms behind the current building with planning permission already granted.

Key Services Offered

We aim for a 90% occupancy rate during the week from mainly business customers, and at weekends from tourists. There are the following two main revenue streams:

  • Revenues generated from guest rooms.
  • Restaurant and bar area.

Forecast Revenues and Profit Margins

Within the first year of operation, we forecast revenues at £537,000. We're projecting an increase of 10% per year thereafter covering inflation and improvement in the restaurant offering.

Revenues will improve by 8-9% for the subsequent two years as occupancy increases. The gross profit margin is forecast slightly above the industry average of 26.6% at 29% with EBITDA at 19.7%.

Management, Staff and Start-up Costs

Thatchems is run by the two owners together with seven staff members. Their duties cover housekeeping services, reception, and the restaurant.

The directors will invest £140,000 into the business at the beginning and repay these loans by the end of the first year.

The property, worth £1,500,000, has been secured by a 25-year mortgage.
