Managing director of Zeal Projects, Tim Wheeldon, cut the ribbon to mark the opening alongside the hotel team – including general manager Barnaby Kean.
Situated in the Regional Rural Business Centre in Bridgwater, the brand new hotel features 138 guest bedrooms, a bar and restaurant, two meeting rooms and on-site car parking. The hotel is also managed by independent hotel management company, RBH.
Neil Taylor, COO at RBH, said: “We are proud to mark the launch of Holiday Inn Express Bridgwater – the first of five new hotel openings this year for RBH. Our reputation for operating properties under the Holiday Inn Express brand speaks for itself.
“With almost 20 counted within our growing portfolio, I am confident that Holiday Inn Express Bridgwater will go from strength to strength now it is welcoming guests.”
Wheeldon added: “I’m thrilled to see Holiday Inn Express Bridgwater officially open its doors to guests. We have worked exceptionally hard along with our partners to ready the city’s largest hotel, and the fruits of our labour are clear to see. I look forward to the journey ahead.”
