A Grade II-listed Lancaster hotel has upped its number of rooms as it undergoes a major expansion.
The Royal Hotel and Bar has created five new rooms after converting a derelict stable block, which means it now boasts 14 rooms in total .
A sum of £80,000 was invested by its owners, the Robinson family, to create The Stable Rooms which are based in the courtyard of the hotel.
They had having originally purchased and renovated the building in 2016.
Director Kim Robinson said: “We took over the business, which had been declining for a number of years, scoring a very low rating on Trip Advisor.
“However, we saw the potential and completed an extensive renovation project to turn the business around.
“We’re delighted with the latest addition and the feedback from our customers has been fantastic.”
The owners were advised on the project by MHA Moore and Smalley.
Partner Adam Parton added: “This expansion shows ambition and vision to create an even stronger business for the future.”
