Jurys Inn Newcastle marks £1.5 Million makeover by giving a warm welcome to 1.5 Millionth Guest

submited Thu 01 Aug, 2013

Jurys Inn Newcastle has today welcomed their 1.5 Millionth Guest, Mr & Mrs Thompson who was surprised with a bouquet of flowers and a voucher for a complimentary break at the hotel during this morning’s check-in.

Jurys Inn Newcastle has recently undergone a twelve month £1.5m makeover at the Scotswood Road hotel. The 274 bedroom hotel is the latest Jurys Inn property to unveil its new look, demonstrating the group’s continued investment in the city, following the opening of Jurys Inn NewcastleGateshead Quays on South Shore Road in August 2011.

Mr Thompson said; “I was absolutely thrilled to find out I was the hotel’s 1.5 millionth guest this morning. I stay at Jurys Inn Newcastle quite often for and I’m loving the hotel’s new look. I can’t wait to use my voucher; I think I'll bring the family for a short break!”

The recent refurbishment marks the hotel’s tenth anniversary since opening in 2003, with all bedrooms comprising darker wood furnishings and warmer fabrics. All nine meeting rooms and public areas, including the bar and restaurant, have been refurbished and now boast a stylish contemporary look.

Jason Dalus, Jurys Inn Newcastle City General Manager said:
"It's fantastic to be able to welcome our 1.5 millionth guest to the hotel and he seems really pleased with his prize. Having opened ten years ago, it's amazing to think so many people have walked through these doors and enjoyed a break with us. The hotel has benefitted from a huge transformation this year, and we look forward to welcoming many more visitors to the hotel in years to come."
