The Malhotra Group, the hospitality giant in the North East has started work on its latest project, the £5.6m transformation of a pub into a new hotel, bar and restaurant in Newcastle.
The group has began to transform the Three Mill Inn in Gosforth into a new 64-bedroom hotel in a phased 18-month development programme as the business remains open throughout.
The development will take place in three main phases, beginning with the construction of a three-story extension, which will ultimately provide additional accommodation for the hotel.
Further phases will include the conversion of the existing building from two to three storeys and the creation of conference, function and private dining facilities, a residents’ lounge, café, bar and restaurant.
“Our aim is to create a hotel and leisure facility which will be a real credit to Gosforth and a genuine asset to the community,” said director of operations Atul Malhotra, “and we very much hope our customers will support us, both during the transition period and once it is complete.”
North east-based Malhotra Group PLC’s Three Mile Inn development is one of several current leisure projects, which began with the recently completed £1.2m refurbishment of its Newcastle city centre Grey Street Hotel.
Future plans include a sports themed bar, new gin bar and additional bedrooms at The New Northumbria Hotel, Jesmond, while Market Lane – known as Monkey Bar – at Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, is to be fully refurbished over both floors.
