Luxury Beamish Hotel invests 450k to open Vintage Antique store and two luxury guest houses
Owners of luxury independent hotel, South Causey Inn near Beamish, have invested a further £450k to create two, two storey hot tub houses and an onsite antique and vintage store.
The hotel have recruited 10 new members of staff, taking the staff total to over 110.
The family-run hotel, which turns over around £3.5m annually, was taken over by Philip and Susan Moiser in 2007, in which time they have invested significantly in the business, taking bedroom numbers from 16 to 38, while introducing a wedding venue, conferencing facilities, weekly market and a mini farm. From 2016 to date, £2.25m has been invested in the hotel and venue.
In October 2015, they converted a London Bus into luxury accommodation and in August 2016 spent a further £800k on eight ultra-luxury themed bedrooms. Each have their own private courtyard, dining area and hot tub, as well en-suite bathrooms with best jacuzzi walk in tubs and waterproof televisions. Accommodating between 150 and 250 guests, The Old Barn opened its doors in 2017 after a £1m investment, which has proven to be a great success as their second wedding venue.
Chester le Street construction company Radford Construction Services worked with the Inn to complete all refurbishment and building work.
Philip Moiser, co-owner, added “ The last couple of years have seen significant changes and investment. The decision to provide accommodation offering houses to sleep up to 10 guests have proved very popular with both families and ladies’ pamper parties. It offers visitors to the region a cost effective way for large parties to enjoy local attractions, such as Beamish Museum.’
‘We regularly are asked about the unusual vintage decor in the rooms and within the hotel, therefore we decided to open an onsite store, Raine and James, which will be managed by my daughter, Harriet Moiser.’
Harriet says ‘This is an exciting new chapter in the hotel which I’m delighted to be involved with. The items sourced are all unique and can’t be found on the High Street.’
