Thwaites Inns sees the value in boutique market and ploughs £6m into Hull property repositioning


 A hotel in Hull is gearing up to reopen after a £6m revamp, headed up by owners Thwaites Inns who are bidding to position the new-look property within the boutique sector.

The Beverley Arms is to reopen in June this summer, after two years of renovations, with Thwaites hoping to transform the property into a five-star boutique, with a turnover of £3m.

Now a recruitment drive has started at the property, with adverts going live for a general manager, assistant manager and head chef for the venue.

Thwaites is looking for an experienced GM, who will be “pivotal to the successful launch of this boutique hotel”, delivering a turnover of £3m.

The recruitment advert says: “We are looking for the right person that can take this wonderful new-look property, shape and lead a high performing team to run the day to day operations and really put us on the map as the best place in town to eat, drink and sleep.”

Next week, Thwaites will start to look for people to work in the kitchen, bar, restaurant and housekeeping.

Sixty jobs are being created at the 40-bedroom hotel, restaurant and bar.

Steve Martin, operations director for Thwaites Inns, says: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who wants to work in hospitality.

“The Beverley Arms will be a stunning boutique hotel and being part of the team that officially launches it is something quite unique.”

Thwaites is aiming to transform the Grade 2 listed building into a five star coaching inn.

The building was acquired by Thwaites, which was AA Hotel Group of the Year in 2016-17, after the Beverley Arms Hotel shut in February 2016.
