Brand new Premier Inn approved for Newbury

by Andrea on 10 Aug 2011

Newbury will soon be offering good quality accommodation at an affordable price, after a deal was completed that will see Premier Inn develop an 80-room hotel and Beefeater Grill restaurant at the Faraday Plaza. The deal, which forms part of the proposed mixed-use Faraday Plaza development, will be an important boost for the local economy, creating approximately 40 jobs in the area, whilst the larger scheme will contribute about £50 million of investment and nearly 600 jobs overall.


“We are excited about our new plans for bringing Premier Inn to Newbury,” says Guy Kemsley, acquisition manager for Whitbread Hotels and Restaurants. “Faraday Plaza is an outstanding development and an exciting regeneration project for the Thames Valley. It’s good news for Premier Inn that we’re part of it and good news for our customers.”


A detailed planning application is currently in the works, and construction could start as soon as 2012.
