Jersey hotel group, Seymour Hotels, has completed a £5m investment programme as a sign of its confidence in the strength of the Jersey tourism market this summer.
The family-run group, which consists of four properties and is responsible for 10% of the Island’s bed stock, has committed the investment to projects across each hotel, The Merton Hotel; Merton Suites; Pomme d’Or Hotel and The Greenhills Country House Hotel.
The more substantial improvements include a £2.3m investment at The Merton Hotel, switching from steam to low temperature hot water systems, as well as a complete IT infrastructure review and implementation across the group.
There has also been a switch from gas and steam to electric induction appliances in all kitchens, improving health and safety, hygiene as well as providing cost savings.
LED lighting has also been introduced, as well as new air conditioning units at Pomme d’Or Hotel and an all-weather multisport ball court.
Merton Aquadome Gym has been refurbished, while Pomme d’Or Hotel has also benefitted from new bathrooms.
Commenting on the investment programme, Managing Director David Seymour said: “Seymour Hotels has been committed to Jersey’s tourism industry for almost 100 years with five generations of the Seymour family working in the business. This is a significant investment of our Group Resources into this important pillar of Jersey’s economy.”
