One of Norfolk’s best independent hotels has opened 12 new bedrooms as part of a £675k investment to secure the long-term future success of the business.
The Globe Inn in Wells-next-the-Sea has transformed its former 19th century coach house and 1900’s touring theatre and cabaret to accommodate the new bedrooms.
Owned by Stephen Bournes and his wife Antonia, the business is now secured for the ‘long term’ after embarking on the ‘exciting new chapter’.
Plans for the project were first revealed last October, alongside details of a new-look restaurant and courtyard with pizza oven.
The 12 new bedrooms will officially launch later this month.
Bournes said: “This is a hugely exciting chapter for us and the future of The Globe Inn. We always knew we wanted to invest long-term in this lovely building and we’re very proud to have achieved all this in six months.”
The couple bought the hotel in 2013 and won Best Independent Hotel at the EDP Visit Norfolk Tourism Awards in 2015.
