A new £6m hotel is set to open its doors in July, despite setting its original launch date back by three months.
The Beverley Arms is gearing up to complete its renovation next month after owners Thwaites Inns initially aimed for an April reopening of the historic hotel.
The Georgian property was acquired by Thwaites, which was AA Hotel Group of the Year in 2016-17, after the Beverley Arms Hotel shut in February 2016.
Now it is being transformed into a boutique hotel, home to 40 bedrooms and a restaurant and bar, with a turnover target of £3m.
Speaking to Hull Daily Mail, Thwaites’ operations director Steve Martin said that the project is ‘still on track for summer’ with the property now taking bedroom bookings from July 23.
“Work is progressing well and we’re really looking forward to opening the doors and welcoming people,” Martin tells Hull Daily Mail.
“We’re delighted to be bringing this grand building back to life as one of Beverley’s must visit places to eat, drink or stay.
“Our recruitment is well underway. We have taken on nearly 50 members of staff already, including a management team who are already visiting some of our other properties to get to know our business and do training.
“We are also still looking for around another 20 people.”
