Hello,

 

I have a question about a multiple businesses operating from the same location.  They are different types of businesses example they have a hotel, bottleshop and restaurant operated by the same owners but each usually has the following different

  • business name
  • phone number
  • operating hours
  • images
  • contact person

The following maybe the same

  • parent company
  • website

My Question

  • Is it within guidelines to create new listings for the separate businesses?

Probably, based on your description - see the "Departments within other business, universities, or institutions" section on https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en for the specific criteria.

it should be ok to have for each of such business their own GMB listing

Thank you Phillip that link is perfect and certainly the examples listed under Acceptable (as distinct listings) clarifies it.
