A luxury hotel in the Wirral has seen profits soar following a recent refurbishment that saw its bedrooms, reception area and outdoor space upgraded.
Thornton Hall Hotel posted pre-tax profits of £78,785 for the year ending September 2015, which was up by 43% on a year earlier, despite turnover dipping 4% to £3.58m over the same period.
In June 2015, the 62-bed hotel revealed that a four-month renovation programme was complete, with the project, which cost £580,000, transforming the property’s reception, bedrooms, outdoor areas and front façade.
Thornton Hall Hotel is owned by hotelier Nancy Thompson and is also home to a luxury spa as well as three restaurants, including a tapas bar and grill, plus the hotel’s 3 AA Rosette restaurant, Lawns.
In March this year, the hotel announced that new head chef Ben Mounsey had joined the Lawns restaurant, while Andrew Richards was promoted to the role of executive chef across the hotel’s F&B operation.
