English businessman Mark Worthington has restored a 15th century tower house in Mallorca into an exclusive boutique hotel.
The Hotel Can Mostatxins (Hotel Moustache) has been transformed into a 9-bedroom luxury hotel, after four years of hard work by the Worthington family.
The official launch is being held at the end of March, where the owners are inviting local business leaders and the town Mayor to attend and see the results of the restoration for themselves.
Once a manor house, Hotel Moustache was apparently named after its owner of several hundred years ago, who sported extremely flamboyant whiskers. Taking its name from the Mallorcan word for moustache, Hotel Can Mostatxins was born.
Along with its nine individually-designed bedrooms, the hotel is the only boutique within the walls of Alcúdia to feature a spa pool.
Worthington says: “The house dates back over 600 years and had been empty for over 300 years, other than a brief spell as a butchers shop several decades ago.
“There has been keen interest from the people of Alcúdia, who are excited at the prospect of the Moustache House opening its doors and joining the business community for the town. We are honoured to have been able to deliver this project!"
