Cornwall is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom. Although a lot of hotels in the area are turned into housing, multi-million-pound investments were made to create more hotels and accommodations in the county.
We had a sneak-peak about some of the developments that are to rise in Cornwall in the next few years.
Holiday Inn Express
This will be the first-ever Holiday Inn Express in the county.
The said hotel will house a restaurant on the first floor and 70 rooms in the second and third floors. Aside from that, there will be a tourist information centre along the site.
This has been part of the Cornwall Services scheme since February 2011.
There is no exact date as to when the said hotel will be available to the public.
Premier Inn in Newquay and Penzance
A four-story, 82-bed hotel by Premier Inn will be built in the location of the former St Brannocks and Tolcarne hotels in Newquay which were demolished in 2008. It is said to be opened by the end of 2019.
The location for the Penzance hotel will be at the former Branwells Mill Building. The said hotel will be having 61 bedrooms. It was announced earlier that the Penzance hotel will open in the first quarter of 2019. There is no exact date for the launching of the hotel.
This jail from the 18th century will be turned into a 63-bed hotel with a £30-million development budget.
This project is creating up to 80 local construction jobs for workers from Cornwall and the South West. Once built, the jail will create 50-60 full-time posts for the locals.
The site will also feature an attraction called ‘Dark Walk’ where guests may experience life in prison 200 years ago. The attraction will be completed in 2019, while the hotel will be opening in 2020.
