Premier Inn unveils new West Country venues

Popular chain Premier Inn has unveiled details of new hotels in Weymouth and Weston-super-Mare.

The new West Country venues will add almost 180 extra bedrooms to Premier Inn's existing portfolio in the UK.

According to the hotel chain, the investment of about 14 million will create about 120 jobs.

The Weymouth venue, which will be located on Dorchester Way, will include 60 bedrooms, as well as a Beefeater Grill restaurant.

A Brewers Fayre restaurant and 116 bedrooms will be located at the Weston-super-Mare venue, which will be found on Dolphin Square.

Richard Pearson, acquisition manager for Premier Inn, said the hotel chain has noted that there are "important opportunities" in the west of England, adding that there are "gaps to fill" in its overall UK network plan.

"These two sites help to fill those gaps and increase the accessibility of Premier Inns to our customers in attractive seaside and leisure destinations," he went on to say.

Earlier this year, Premier Inn announced that it was creating a new London venue in Richmond.
