New Premier Inn Brings £3.6 Million Investment To Penrith

23 Feb 2016 Brand

Premier Inn is to open its brand new Penrith Hotel on the 2nd March 2016. This new property will contribute over £3.6 million to the local economy whilst generating 26 new year round jobs for the residents of Penrith and the surrounding area.

The brand new 60 bedroom hotel is situated in the heart of the town, within walking distance from all the local amenities and attractions. The hotel is a mile away from Penrith North Lakes Train Station.

As well as being known for it’s three mile proximity to the Lake District National Park, Penrith is now an important shopping district, with a good mix of traditional shops and sophisticated arcades. Guests can become at one with nature and enjoy the majestic Aira force waterfall walks or for the adventurous kind, a visit to Eden Valley adventures for river rafting, water tubing, canyoning and rappelling tours is a must.

The new Premier Inn Penrith offers visitors the perfect base from which to explore all that the town and surrounding area has to offer – it also offers a great nights sleep at the end of a busy day or the night before an important meeting.  The hotel has a breakfast, snack and dinner menu for guests at reasonable prices making it a truly great place to stay.

Julia Marshall, The New Openings Manager for Premier Inn Penrith, comments: “We are looking forward to welcoming guests to the town of Penrith and to spread the word of all that it has to offer. With our luxurious Hypnos beds, we want guests to have a good night’s sleep so that they can Wake up Wonderful for the day ahead. Positioned in a fantastic location, within walking distance to Penrith Castle, the hotel will give guests everything they need to explore the area! “

The hotel boasts an on-site Thyme restaurant and new-generation bedrooms, each featuring an impressive 40″ flat screen TV, bright, modern bathroom with a large showerhead and slumber-inducing, king-size Hypnos bed.

With over 700 hotels nationwide, Premier Inn is the UK’s largest hotel chain, at more locations than any other hotel chain in the UK with rooms starting at £35 for a family room for four. To find out participating hotels where the £35 room offer is available visit
