66-bedroom town centre hotel moves closer to completion

Posted onPosted on 20th Jan

NEWARK’S new hotel development is now in the final stages of construction.

The three floor, 66-bedroom Travelodge is due to open in March at the site of the former Robin Hood Hotel, generating up to 70 new jobs and accompanied by three ground floor retail units to support further regeneration over coming years.

Exterior building work is complete and final stages of the development are well under way, including room decoration and cosmetic finishing touches to the interior.

The Grade II listed structure and façade were carefully retained during construction, with any repairs undertaken to the original structure.

Coun David Lloyd, leader of Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “I am absolutely delighted with the progress that has been made despite nearly a year of national restrictions.

“These are really exciting times and the new hotel will further enhance Newark as a tourist destination with huge potential to drive investment into area.

“We promised that we would work to bring an end to this long-standing and complex blight on the town and I am thrilled that it is almost complete.”

The council is now looking to secure three long-term tenants in the ground floor commercial units for occupation from mid-March onwards.

The units total 900 square metres and are suitable for a variety of uses to further enhance the area.
