Coastal hotel Leasowe Castle has bolstered a successful year of business following on from its bumper refurbishment.
The 16th century castle in Liverpool has reported that it saw a significant increase in profits for 2017 following a £3m refurbishment project, which gave the property a “new lease of life” whilst restoring and enhancing its original charm and heritage.
The hotel’s general manager, Mike Dewey, joined the hotel as the premise prepared to relaunch its new look in February last year.
Dewey said: “With luxurious new dining and drinking options to renovated events space and rooms, The Castle has even been selected by royalty to host the 2017 Duke of York Young Champions Trophy Golfing Tournament.
“What’s more, we have expanded our team, taking on some valuable new appointments including our recently appointed award-winning head chef Andrew Wright who has devised dishes fit for royalty across all of our hospitality outlets from our in-house eatery Brasserie 1593 to wedding and events catering.
“This last 12 months has seen the venue unveil its newly rebranded Wreckers Bar, and Leasowe Castle has also recently completed works on The Star Chamber, an intimate lounge area ideal for smaller groups whereby the venue’s luxury afternoon tea offerings are served. The newly opened area plays homage to the original features of the castle with a contemporary twist.”
