A hotel in North Wales is on track to break through £1m in turnover over the next 12 months, after a new owner completely turned business around.
Plas Maenan Country House in the Conwy Valley was acquired by Jane Harris last year who has since transformed the venue into a profitable hotel, bringing in a new chef and investing more than £250k in a refurbishment.
Harris is now bidding to take things to the ‘next level’ to make £1m in turnover over the next year.
Having semi-retired, Harris had planned to open a country retreat when she found Plas Maenan Country House in 2018.
She has since brought in Great British Menu star Jason Hughes as head chef and implemented a series of improvements, including Hiraeth, a new European and Welsh tapas restaurant and added four new bedrooms.
Plas Maenan Country House was also featured on The Great Hotel Escape earlier this year.
Harris adds: “The potential here is enormous, our food is fabulous and the events we’ve held have been well-received.
“The restaurant and accommodation will be at the heart of everything, and with the investment what we have is perfect for weddings and events, as well as our local diners and guests.”
She added: “The next 12 months will be about taking things to the next level and breaking through the glass ceiling of £1million in turnover.”
