Update on new hotel in town centre
The construction of the Berwick Premier Inn in Sandgate is “progressing well”, according to Richard Aldread, head of construction in the UK and Ireland regions for parent company Whitbread.
He added: “The building is nearly watertight, the site crane has been removed and the contractor team has started to create the internal layout of the hotel.
“All being well, we intend to start removing the external scaffolding in early September and begin fitting out the hotel bedrooms, in-house restaurant and communal areas in earnest.
“Once again, I would like to reiterate my gratitude to our neighbours for their patience during the build.
“We are scheduling to open the new hotel before Christmas.”
