A top hotel in Scarborough has increased its occupancy following a major six-figure refurbishment project, funded by Yorkshire Bank.
The Ambassador Hotel, a Victorian hotel located on Scarborough’s explanade overlooking South Bay, is putting in new bathrooms and boilers in a bid to improve customer ratings.
The 59-bed hotel, is also home to an indoor pool, sauna and bar and lounge area. Now all the bathrooms on the third floor have been replaced and further works will be undertaken when the summer season ends.
Charlotte Jackson, a co-director of the Ambassador Hotel, said: “We’re extremely pleased with the results of our investment – and our lovely guests are loving the new wet rooms too.
“As well as offering attractive wet-room style facilities, the bathrooms feature a much more powerful water system and showers with plenty of hot water to go round.
Yorkshire Bank provided funding to support the project. The funding was delivered by Brian De Vere, a relationship manager based in Yorkshire Bank’s North Yorkshire Customer Banking Centre.
De Vere said: “It’s very rewarding to help a local business such as the Ambassador Hotel; its plan to increase occupancy will not only help the business to grow, it could also provide Scarborough’s tourism sector with an economic boost.”
