The Halston in Carlisle, Cumbria is to create a new garden terrace as part of the hotel’s £7m commitment to development and growth.
The hotel, bar and restaurant is creating the ‘much-needed’ outdoor space to encourage more wedding and events trade, and will be open in time for the summer.
This current development follows on the back of over £7m investment since the original site was purchased in 2014, with the opening of Penny Blue restaurant bar and the addition of the townhouses in 2017, plus the property hosting its first wedding fair in February 2019.
The Halston is run by its four directors and co-owners Joanne Graham, Robin Graham, Dominque Harrison and Simon Harrison.
Dominque Harrison says: “As part of our continued commitment and development of The Halston we are creating a much-needed outdoor space for our events. This will create a beautiful entrance and garden terrace area which will offer guests a stunning backdrop for wedding photos and a space to enjoy welcome drinks and events outside. The inspiration for the area was drawn from the displays at Chelsea Flower show last year, hopefully bringing a slice of urban garden heaven to our hotel.”
