The Tynemouth Castle Inn set to open in November

The multi-million-pound refurbishment of one of Tynemouth’s most iconic hotels is entering its final phases, as The Inn Collection Group gears up to open The Tynemouth Castle Inn this autumn.

A feature of the town’s Grand Parade for more than 80 years overlooking the famous Longsands, the venue is set to embark on an exciting new chapter following a 14-month programme of works.

With the first guests expected to check in to the brand-new pub with rooms in early November, the first sneak peek has been given as the fit-out process gathers pace.

The changes to the venue are immediately apparent from the outside, with new rendering giving it a brilliant white appearance and new signage and window fittings embracing its art deco style.

Its newly constructed extensions are also fully in place, with additional bedrooms, a new fish and chip shop – Oswin’s, and ice cream parlour Cones increasing the footprint of the venue.

Upon entry from a newly created outdoor terrace to the front, that will allow guests to enjoy the stunning panoramic views of the shoreline below, the new bar is found directly ahead..

Whilst it is full speed ahead in the bar, the rooms attached to the inn are getting set for their finishing touches, with much of their refurbishment already completed. New décor, furniture, carpets, and bathrooms are already in situ, with many now only awaiting a final deep clean before being ready to welcome their guests.

Looking ahead to the imminent reopening, group CEO Sean Donkin said: “This stunning building is an institution on the coast in Tynemouth and we are delighted to be giving this icon a new lease of life for people in the community and visitors alike to enjoy. Our restoration has been a significant investment and has been carefully carried out to preserve the individual character and distinctiveness of the building. We are looking forward to being a part of the community and contributing to North Tyneside’s wider economic growth, prosperity and employment opportunities through increased, year-round trading. Our improved bar and dining areas are going to attract new and local custom while the increased bedrooms will generate increased overnight bookings throughout the year.”
