We have had a busy old September and the weather has been quite kind to us on the whole bit of an Indian summer in parts really! Not quite sure who stole September it seems to have whizzed by so fast. Still busy re vamping the exterior building ‘Doddy’ our full time painter has almost finished painting the outside. The new entrance on the front of the hotel is almost finished this leads into a new area of the restaurant which is ideal for private parties. We are just waiting the arrival of our new furniture for the front of the hotel which will be exciting! Paul our GM has been busy with the Great North Run finishing in a very respectful 2 hours 30 mins and Sue our GM has enjoyed entering the Cross Bay Walk for the first time – think this was done at a more leisurely pace!
