Isle of Wight’s Broadway Park Hotel, which was saved from permanent closure after it ceased trading under its previous owners last year, is celebrating a successful first quarter since reopening in May – having served more than 11,000 breakfasts while looking after 15,000 guests across a busy summer season.
With the pandemic having put the hotel at risk of permanent closure last year, as previously reported by Island Echo, a bumper summer since its reopening has seen the hotel bounce firmly back, as it continues to go from strength to strength.
Reflecting on a hectic few months, the hotel management team was pleased to see the numbers of guests it had served in that time after the quiet closure period. This revealed that, by the end of August, the hotel had served 11,128 breakfasts to 15,808 guests.
Dean Pascall, General Manager of The Broadway Park Hotel, said:
“Looking back on what we’ve achieved in the last few months is always a rewarding feeling, but when you put some numbers on it, it just makes it all the more eye-opening. In hospitality, you’re often very much focused on looking after the in-house guests, so you can easily forget just how many people you’ve looked after over a period of weeks and months.
“To think that we’ve had more than 15,000 guests in already since reopening really underlines how much the hotel and destination has to offer and how hard the hotel team has worked, whilst also offering great positivity for the future.”
“It’s not just for the hotel either. Another layer of reward comes from knowing that we’ve supported that many people visiting the Isle of Wight. Given we’re an area usually popular with tourists, the positive impact for other businesses in the area is huge.
“We look forward to both working with, and serving the local community with our hospitality offering – it’s great to think that everyone else around us is also hopefully bouncing back alongside us.”
