New Developments for 2018

Hotel and Restaurant Expansion

North Norfolk boutique hotel and restaurant, The Globe Inn, has confirmed the expansion of their hotel offering with new investment for the historic coaching-inn.
The move will see the award-winning hotel introduce 11 new bedrooms to the Grade II-listed pub in Wells-next-the-Sea, bringing the total number of rooms at The Globe Inn to 18.

Major renovation work on the £675,000 investment will get underway from mid-October and continue throughout the winter season. The new rooms will be available for holidaymakers to book from Spring 2018.

Owners Stephen and Antonia Bournes, previous owners of Southwold Pier in Suffolk, bought the The Globe Inn in 2013 and have always had long-term investment in the forefront of their minds. “Since we bought The Globe we always knew we wanted to invest long-term into this 17th century building. In those four years we have refurbished the bar and restaurant area, introduced the only rooftop terrace in Wells and created a place we hope visitors will want to visit time and time again.”

“This new investment is a very exciting time for not only us but also for the visitors of Wells-next-the-Sea. Wells is certainly a popular destination for visitors at any time of year which has prompted us to expand our offering to those looking to stay in this beautiful part of Norfolk. It will also mean we are able to open up many more job opportunities for people in the local area and are looking forward to adding to our existing team of 25 staff.”

The announcement of the new developments at The Globe Inn has been welcomed by the local destination management organisation. Kayla Dunne, Brand Manager, Visit North Norfolk says, “Accommodation businesses in north Norfolk, overall, have had a busy year, so we are delighted that the popular Globe Inn is investing in new accommodation providing more choice, as well as accessibility, for visitors to Wells. North Norfolk’s visitor economy continues to grow and this is reflected by The Globe Inn’s confidence to expand their business.”

The new development will feature three ‘apart-hotel’ style rooms with kitchenettes for self-catering holidaymakers, three pet friendly rooms and a selection of large super king, family and easy access rooms.
Hotel guests will have exclusive use of the rooftop terrace overlooking the historic courtyard and a beach hut on Wells Beach complete with buckets, spades, deck chairs and picnic blankets.
