Wetherspoon has opened two new hotels – at Biggleswade (Bedfordshire) and in Hull (East Yorkshire).
It takes the number of Wetherspoon hotels to 54, with more planned to open across the UK and Republic of Ireland in the coming months and years. The hotels have a combined 1,150 rooms – across England, Scotland and Wales.
From Cumbria to Cornwall, there are 42 hotels throughout England; from the Highlands to the Scottish Borders, Scotland offers seven places to stay; our five hotels in Wales stretch from Denbighshire to Monmouthshire.
The Crown Hotel, Biggleswade
We opened the door to our first hotel in 1998, in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. The Shrewsbury Hotel, still open today, boasts views of the River Severn from many of its 22 rooms and has a long history of happy customers. Our smallest hotel is located at Sittingbourne, where we converted the old magistrate’s court, in the Kent town, into The Golden Hope pub and three-bedroom hotel.
Two of the bedrooms’ names, ‘Petty Sessions’ and ‘Legal Eagle’, recall the building’s former use and offer either double or twin occupancy. The third room, a master suite, named the ‘Captain Vallance Room’, features his and hers sinks, an Edwardian roll-top bath and walk-in double shower.
The Golden Hope, Sittingbourne
New hotels in Biggleswade and Hull mean that we now have 1,150 rooms in 54 locations The largest hotel, to date, is at Barrow-in-Furness, in Cumbria. The Furness Railway offers 50 en suite bedrooms: a mix of double and twin rooms, as well as two specially adapted for guests with disabilities. There are also conference room facilities available.
However, Wetherspoon is set to open its first hotel in the Republic of Ireland, in Dublin, in 2019 – it will be the company’s largest hotel with 98 rooms and will be above a new pub which the company is opening in Camden Street, in the city centre.
In Cornwall, our 37-bedroom hotel opened above The John Francis Basset, at Camborne, in July 2015. Each of the bedrooms has a contemporary design, with two featuring a bathroom in the clock tower. The bathrooms for these are fitted with elegant roll-top baths. At Whitby in North Yorkshire, The Angel Hotel is centrally situated, overlooking the river Esk. The luxury rooms in this beautiful 34-room hotel all have a view. Just a few minutes from the main beach in this seaside town, we have two great balcony rooms, at the front of the hotel, which overlook the harbour. Selected hotels offer meeting and conference rooms, step-free access and car-parking facilities – visit the hotel’s website page for more information.
