The Bay Tree in Broadstairs, which recently unveiled its new look following a refurbishment, will open a new outdoor dining space next year to mark the final phase of a £1.2m renovation project.
The hotel, which is owned by Alistair Dixon and Robert Stone, recently invested in its bedrooms and restaurant space, ploughing money into improving standards and the look and feel of the whole property.
Now they have announced plans to create a rear patio outdoor extension as the final piece of the renovation puzzle.
Speaking to Boutique Hotelier, the business owners said that while the total investment of £1.2m was more than they originally paid for the business, the building is 35% larger than before and is receiving rave reviews from national press and visitors as a result.
The overall refurbishment has also seen the old kitchen reworked and a new head chef appointed last August.“Business has been good this year,” Alistair and Robert told BH, “In preparation for the refurbishment we had to do a budget for a lender who provided a minority proportion of the investment for the refurbishment. Actual performance has exceeded this budget because we were prudent in our forecasts.”
