A historic hotel in Yarborough has unveiled its new look following an extensive £m renovation.
The Grade-II listed Yarborough Hotel, owned and operated by pub chain Wetherspoons, has now reopened after a four-week transformation that has created 36 bedrooms in a bid to bring the property back to its former glory.
The 19th century hotel in Grimsby has a rich history, being the location of an election riot in 1862, and was originally scheduled to be completed in February, however work had to be halted after construction workers uncovered problems with the building’s Victorian Ballroom ceiling.
Operator Wetherspoon invested heavily in the project, and said that it’s an example of where the company wants to be in terms of developing buildings as hotels. The chain is also revamping a large proportion of its pubs too.
Wetherspoon’s area manager for North East Lincolnshire, Joe Sanerson, said: “We are over the moon to be reopening the Yarborough Hotel and to be able to bring it back to its former glory, we have invested heavily into the 36-room hotel so that we were able to make it the place that we wanted it to be.”
