Hotel and restaurant opening is ‘good news’ for Barrow
Last updated at 15:46, Wednesday, 08 January 2014
MORE than 60 people will start work at a new hotel and restaurant in Barrow when they open next month.
The Premier Inn and Brewers Fayre in Barrow are scheduled to open for business on February 17. A total of £5m has been invested in the development.
A spokesman for Whitbread, the company behind the project in North Road, said around 65 jobs had been created, but was unable to confirm how many applications were received.
Nicholas Johnston, acquisitions manager for Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants, said: “We are excited to be opening our new Premier Inn in Barrow. The new 62-bedroom hotel alongside the new Brewers Fayre restaurant will create 65 new jobs for the local area. The new hotel will also draw new business and leisure travellers to the area, giving the local economy a healthy boost.
“The new Premier Inn will be an asset to the local community and a great proposition to our customers. Premier Inn is the UK’s most successful hotel chain, with over 670 hotels and 54,000 rooms, with an ambitious target to reach 75,000 rooms by 2018. Accompanying this rapid growth will be an impressive recruitment drive, as Premier Inn seeks to provide 8,000 new jobs by 2018. Premier Inn is good news for Barrow and we very much look forward to opening our doors to the public.”
