Whitbread has announced the construction of three new Premier Inn hotels in Britain’s national parks.
The developments will take place in Keswick Lake District, St Davids Pembrokeshire and Porthmadog Snowdonia, and in total help to create 80 jobs for UK hospitality workers.
The venues will add a further 214 rooms to Premier Inn’s network of hotels across Britain and form a combined £20m investment from Whitbread.
Construction work is set to commence on the new Premier Inn hotels at St Davids and Porthmadog before Christmas, with the development of the Lake District National Park hotel at Keswick expected to begin in spring 2021.
Alex Flach, UK development director for Premier Inn, said: “Around half of all Premier Inn guests stayed with us on leisure breaks last year. It’s an important part of our business and we are continually reviewing our network of hotels to ensure we are represented in popular leisure destinations across the UK and Ireland where our customers want us to be.
“We have strengthened our network further by committing to new Premier Inn hotels in three of the UK’s most popular destinations for leisure and active breaks. The hotels are all in excellent locations and we expect them to be very popular with our guests throughout the year when they open.”
