The 85-bedroomed hotel is the eighth Premier Inn venue in the Province and marked a further an £8 Million investment in Northern Ireland.
The new hotel is located in Castle Park Avenue, a stone’s throw from Bangor Castle and within walking distance of Bangor Marina and the town centre.
Kevin Murray, Head of Acquisitions for Premier Inn in Ireland and Northern England commented: “The hotel is right where our customers will want us to be, with the transport connections and accessible parking they expect from Premier Inn, and features our latest specification bedrooms and family-friendly in-house restaurant.
“It’s an excellent showcase for the quality of our hotels and we’re expecting it will be popular with leisure and business guests year-round.”
The new hotel is the latest boost for the town to be announced. The Department for Communities announced in May that Bangor Marine had been appointed to carry out a revamp of Queen’s Parade. The town has also secured £60m from the Belfast Region City Deal for the regeneration of a two-mile stretch of coastline running from ‘Pickie’ to Ballymacormick Point.
Bill Keery, DUP Mayor of Ards and North Down said: “It will make a very significant contribution to the accommodation offering locally and is much needed as we begin to explore other exciting opportunities for the town that will attract more visitors over the next five years.”
