Future Projects

We will be replacing the main roof to the Tynedale completely during the first two weeks of January along with refurbishment to corridors too bedrooms 1 – 9 and aiming to refurbish a further 14 bedrooms during the year. Big roofing Jobs are what us hoteliers dread as its a major capital expense with nothing to show our customers unlike refurbishing bedrooms and public areas, still you won’t need your brollies indoors anymore !!
