Refurbishment nearly complete at Colchester's North Hill Hotel

Refurbishment work which will see the extension of the popular North Hill Hotel and its Green Room bistro in Colchester is nearing completion. Funding to support the expansion has been provided by their new banking partners, NatWest.

The North Hill Hotel opened in December 2008 following the development of previously run-down buildings on the North Hill site. The hotel was the dream of local businessman Rob Brown who originally trained in the hotel industry. Its setting in the town, two minutes from the High Street, five minutes from the bus station and ten minutes from the train station, makes it an ideal central setting for guests to make the most of the old Roman capital city. A key part of the hotel's success is the popular Green Room bistro which wherever possible sources local produce - be it fish from the inshore East Coast or meats from the farmlands of Essex.

Currently the hotel has 13 rooms, 11 doubles and two singles. The project underway is a £250,000 conversion of buildings at the rear of the property, which includes one of the oldest buildings registered in Colchester. Once complete, the project will add a further four double bedrooms and an additional 30 restaurant covers.

The directors of the hotel have also recently acquired The Warehouse in Colchester town centre, a contemporary steak house, which also continues to do good business.

NatWest in Colchester has become the hotel's new banking partner. They have put in place the funds to cover the refurbishment, whilst also uplifting the debt facilities held with the hotel's previous banking providers.
