What is for sale ?

A public limited company of the Hotel-Restaurant Ermitage*** in Kandersteg/BE is put on sale (share deal).
It owns land of approximately 3,000 m2, including two hotel and restaurant buildings, parking spaces, all the installations and equipment and also furniture and inventory of the establishment.

Reason for sale

As part of a change, Rosemarie and Kari Bieri-Keller, the current operators  and owners of 100% of the shares seek a motivated successor. The opportunity is given to take over a well established modern hotel / restaurant in the region. The solid business base, in addition to construction opportunities, provides good conditions for sales growth.

Description property and business

The limited company is composed of a hotel and a restaurant:
The buildings built in the chalet style do contain 16 hotel rooms, standard 3 star Hotelleriesuisse (checked in 2017). One 3,5 rooms appartement with kitchen and a 5,5 rooms appartment with kitchen and 2 bath-rooms in the 2000 built chalet are also included
The equipment and finishes of the rooms are modern, rustic and functional. About 4,500 nights a year.
The Food & Beverage sector, which represent 70% of the sales, is the main source of revenue. Places available: 150 inside and 90 on the terrace.

Offer: Rich breakfast buffet, à la carte menus, varied menu choices for groups and banquets, great diversity in desserts. Hot food non-stop from 11:00 to 21:00. Given the proximity of the well-frequented cable car and the variations in tourist attendance, the establishment requires professional and efficient work.

The range of the restaurant’s clientele is wide: Hotel guests, tourists from chalets or holiday appartments,  guests of other hotels, cable cars users, good food lovers, hikers, bikers, cross-country skiers (the establishment is located directly along the loipe), track skiers (you can get to the hotel with skis), group travelers, individual tourists from near and far and also locals.


Staff and organization

The hotel-restaurant has 13 employees (including extras, apprentices and management). The owners can count on long-time collaborators. They perform assigned tasks in an autonomous and reliable manner.

The company stands out for the following strengths:

– Profitable with a high turnover stability (1,4 – 1,5 Mio. CHF)

– Well implanted and well maintained without the need for accumulated maintenance

– Low fixed loads, good infrastructure

– Privileged location, next to the cable car, with a breathtaking panoramic view

– loyal and particularly diverse clientele

– Quality plot with potential

– Well-honed and welcoming team of collaborators

– Attractive food and drink offer

– Positive image in a tourist place

– Excellent value

– Room occupancy approximately 56%

– Quiet location

– Connection with public transport

– Rational workflow

Existing potential to develop the company:

The F & B concept is to be verified, resp. to develop on the basis of the important use of the cable car. Provide some of the restoration as Self-service and Take-Away which would help to better control the peaks of affluence and ensure a rational flow. By using modern ways of communication and targeted Newsletter actions, the annual occupation can be increased.

The potential in the construction level is considerable. The utilization index is 0.8 and allows an additional development of the establishment (more hotel rooms, enlargement of the “restoration” area, etc.).
