A leading Scarborough hotel is set to deliver increased occupancy after undergoing a major refurbishment assisted by a six-figure funding package from Yorkshire Bank.
The Ambassador Hotel, a Victorian hotel located on Scarborough’s esplanade overlooking South Bay, is installing new en-suite bathrooms and boilers to improve its customer experience and grow bookings.
The 59-bed hotel, which is less than two minutes’ walk to the beach, features chic contemporary interiors, an indoor pool and sauna and a relaxing bar/lounge. To date, all of the en-suite bathrooms on the third floor have now been replaced. Further modernisation will take place out of season.
Yorkshire Bank provided funding to support the project. The funding was delivered by Brian De Vere, a relationship manager based in Yorkshire Bank’s North Yorkshire Customer Banking Centre.
Brian De Vere said: “It’s very rewarding to help a local business such as the Ambassador Hotel; its plan to increase occupancy will not only help the business to grow, it could also provide Scarborough’s tourism sector with an economic boost.
“As economic conditions continue to improve, Yorkshire Bank remains committed to supporting the growth ambitions of businesses such as the Ambassador Hotel.”
