Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel & Lodges has expanded its lodge offering to cash in on the sky-high demand for self-catering stays post-Covid.
The hotel in Northern Ireland has invested £1.5m into adding six woodland lodges to its mix, complete with private hot tubs, taking its total lodge offering to 20 when they open in mid-July.
The new additions have been named after woodland birds and each comprise two en-suite bedrooms, a kitchen, open-plan lounge and outdoor terrace.
Embracing sustainability, the concrete-built lodges are low in energy demand and designed for a 100-year lifespan.
14 lakeside lodges opened in the grounds of the hotel in March 2017.
Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel has also used lockdown to roll out a major refurbishment of its bedrooms.
Killyhevlin Lakeside Hotel & Lodges joint directors Jacqueline Wright and Leigh Watson said: “With the increased demand for self-catering accommodation, considerable planning and meticulous design work have gone into the creation of our state-of-the-art Woodland Lodges, which will provide a major boost to the local tourism sector and present a fantastic option for a relaxing staycation.”
A Padel tennis court is also being added and the hotel will be the first in Northern Ireland with this facility.
