Work to extend the region's premier hotel has got underway.
It will mean capacity at the Doubletree by Hilton hotel at Cadbury House in Congresbury will increase by 60 rooms from 72-bedrooms to 132.
Costing 5 million, the extension which is to be built at the rear of the existing hotel, will result in a further 50 jobs being created plus the employment of many local suppliers during the construction work including that of a Bristol contractor to oversee the project.
Formerly Cadbury House Hotel, Health Club and Spa the hotel became part of the world renowned Doubletree franchise in December 2009 and now proudly displays the logo synonymous with only the best hotels across the world.
The new extension will allow the four-star venue to host more events such as conferences, business meetings and weddings which before, it had to turn away.
Opened in 2007 the hotel has enjoyed occupancy levels consistently over 80% with guests including personalities such as Sven-Goran Eriksson, Manchester City football club and Nick Knowles from DIY SOS.
With its own glitz and glamour the four-star boutique style hotel is like no other in the region and with parking for up to 350 people, it’s easy to understand why businesses find Cadbury House so attractive for delegates.
Mark Hands group general manager said:
"The reawakening of Cadbury House has really put this part of North Somerset right on the map. To become part of the Doubletree franchise not only reflects the high quality accommodation and service we currently provide at Cadbury House but raises the standard for hoteliers right across the region.
"Its success demonstrates that there has always been demand for a quality hotel and it’s great that work has started on the final part of its transformation.
"With work taking place at the rear of the hotel will mean no disruption so it'll be business as normal during the extension's construction.”
