"Having tried 2 different agents for over a 2 1/2 year period with no success, we decided to instruct Smith and Clough, who within weeks had secured a buyer. We were put at ease from the outset and throughout the sale process and were delighted with the service we received. We would have no hesitation in recommending Smith and Clough to anyone thinking of selling their business."

We would recommend their services and would not hesitate to use them again”

"Having made the decision to place our Hotel on the Market ,and subsequently, also to deal with all the associated stress and pressure that that decision would bring, the level of service and support that we received from our chosen Agents, Smith and Clough, was exceptional.
Through all the twists and turns of trying to sell a going concern within the current financial market and sector constraints, Smith and Clough not only exceeded our expectations but they also managed to achieve an offer which exceeded our asking price. We cannot thank Graeme and Jonathan enough for all their hard work and support.
We are only too pleased to recommend their services to any other party, who may be considering structure change within their business."
