Popular Hunstanton hotel set to open its doors from next month
A hotel in Hunstanton is set to reopen its doors from next month as part of newly-formed hotel collection.
The Golden Lion will be part of the Coast & Country Hotel Collection, a newly-formed collection of former Shearings Hotels.
Coast & Country is seeking to reinvigorate the hotels’ offering, helping to showcase their amenities and wonderful locations – a key attraction of the properties incorporated within the Coast & Country portfolio.
Having gone into administration in May 2020 as part of Shearings Hotels, it was feared that The Golden Lion would remain closed indefinitely.
However, under new ownership and following a hotel management agreement with Bespoke Hotels, the Golden Lion was able to reopen briefly last year, before the latest lockdown forced the doors to close again.
The venue the Golden Lion is set to open for outdoor dining and an opening date set for May f17 or the full hotel, in accordance with Government guidance.
The Carlton, based at Yarmouth, will open a little later in the summer having also been taken on by the group. Both hotels are looking to recruit heavily within their local communities, with a number of opportunities at the Golden Lion.
Applicants are welcome to enquire about the positions available.
Paul FitzGerald, portfolio managing director, said of the plans for the collection: “Given the enormous challenges of the last few months, we’re delighted to bring these properties back to market.
“Integral parts of Norfolk’s hotel offering, we know their initial closure was felt keenly amongst their respective communities.
“Now though, with reopening plans in place, we’re able to offer not just jobs and wider tourism opportunities, but hospitality services that people can engage with as restrictions lift.”
On their aims, Mr Fitzgerald added:“Our renewed focus with reopening is on attracting those seeking leisure breaks and welcoming local residents to sample the restaurants, bars, and wedding and event spaces on offer as we look to restore the hotels to local hero status and develop a close bond with communities.”
