New Scarborough Premier Inn Could Open Next Summer

It's hoped a new Premier Inn in Scarborough could open next summer.

That's according to developers Benchmark Leisure, with the proposal of a 105 bedroom hotel next to the Alpamare Water Park.

Planning application was submitted in April and a decision is due next month. The hotel, which would be the second Premier Inn in Scarborough, would sit on a vacant plot of land between the water park and the Generous George pub.

But, as with the North bay cinema, Chief Executive of developers Benchmark Leisure Roland Duce, says they've had to adjust their original plans:

"The original brief was to be a whole story higher than it is. We have had to now reduce the number of stories by one and increase the footprint a little bit in order to not lose any bedrooms. 

But the result is that it sits a lot better in terms of the waterpark on one side and the very attractive pub beside it. "

And Roland believes that B&B and smaller hotel owners shouldn't worry:

"The reality, undoubtedly I think, is that the sort of people who go to a Premier Inn are not the sort of people who go to a small hotel or a Bed and Breakfast.

There are some people who wouldn't dream of going to a Premier Inn, they would only go to a Bed and Breakfast.

So the reverse is true and I'm quite confident that there's room for everybody."
