One of the North Coast’s premier leisure venues, The Bushtown Hotel, Coleraine, has unveiled newly refurbished premises following a £300,000 investment supported by First Trust Bank.
Revealing the results of Phase One of its expansion programme, the hotel’s reception area and all 39 bedrooms have been completely renovated to provide guests with a modern experience in comfortable surroundings.
An already well-known entertainment venue, Phase Two will see the hotel remodel its restaurant and public areas to capitalise on Northern Ireland’s growing wedding industry, providing an all-inclusive venue for bridal parties and their guests.
Given the hotel’s prime gateway location to the Causeway Coast and Glens, business owners Kieran McGilligan and Dermot Friel also plan to strengthen their appeal to North Coast day and event tourists by offering tailored packages aimed at encouraging visitors to prolong their stay.
Speaking about the renovations, Kieran McGilligan, part owner and Managing Director of the Bushtown Hotel said;
“We are delighted to unveil the latest stage of our expansion programme to our customers, the local community and of course, future patrons. We listened to what is important to guests and have focused our efforts on modernising the hotel whilst still maintaining its traditional family feel. We have designed each bedroom to be completely unique and also offer six family combi rooms which can sleep a family of eight. This flexibility means we can cater for all our customers’ needs with facilities that well surpass the expectations of a three-star hotel.
“We are proud to have one of the most popular function rooms in Northern Ireland due to our ‘Bushtown Big Band’ evenings and our strong relationship with the country music community. This latest investment is just one step in an ambitious programme that will hopefully see us capitalise on this already strong reputation and our desirable location to extend our offering for weddings and for tourists exploring the North Coast.”
Congratulating the business on the results of its most recent investment, Paul Herbison, Relationship Manager at First Trust Bank added;
“Kieran, Dermot and the team at the Bushtown Hotel have worked hard to build a strong reputation for great food, entertainment and accommodation, and the recent renovations are a further example of their commitment to providing hospitality excellence on the North Coast. Their vision and ambition for the Hotel continues to impress us and their guests, and we look forward to supporting their vision over the coming years.”
