Inn Collection Group’s Tynemouth Castle Inn to open in 2023

A Tynemouth landmark will have a new identity when it reopens in 2023, after The Inn Collection Group unveiled the name of its first site in North Tyneside.

Overlooking Longsands beach, The Park Hotel will become The Tynemouth Castle Inn once work is completed on a multi-million-pound refurbishment by the Newcastle-based hospitality company.

Taking its name from the complex that has sat on the headland to the south east of the inn – fortifications are believed to have been present at the site since the 11th Century until the mid-part of the 20th – the new venue will add to the successful pub-with-rooms company’s portfolio.

Acquired by the group in April 2021, works at the iconic art-deco building are progressing apace with Gateshead-based STP Construction leading on the project, which was designed by GSS Architecture.

The redevelopment is set to breathe new life into the historic hotel and includes an extensive remodelling of the current bar and dining areas along with the site’s existing rooms. A two-storey extension, which is to be built in place of a previously underused function and events area, will create additional bedroom space for guests, while a further single-storey construction will add a fish and chip takeaway and ice cream parlour. New external seating areas and terraces will be added, maximising the venue’s 180-degree sea views.
