Limavady-based Roe Park Resort announces £500k expansion
A FOUR-star Co Derry hotel has announced a £500,000 investment programme in response to growing demand for its wedding and event services.
The Roe Park Resort in Limavady is undertaking an expansion and redesign of its main function room - the Roe Park Suite. The refurbishment will increase capacity by 25 per cent to accommodate over 300 guests and the new look suite will include its own bar and private entrance.
The refurbishment and expansion plans will also see the renovation of the hotel's restaurant, Greens, as well as a phased refurbishment of its 118 bedrooms.
The design project will be led by Dungannon-based interiors expert Philip Rodgers, who has worked for some of the world's top hotel and leisure brands. Work will start in January and is due for completion by the spring.
The plans follow hot on the heels of a recent £1m investment in the transformation of the resort's 18-hole parkland golf course.
Michael Marshall, general manager of Roe Park Resort said the latest investment is a direct response to increased demand over the past 18 months.
"We've always been a very popular wedding destination – with over half of our bookings coming from counties Derry and Antrim. However, over the last 12-18 months we've grown our reach, with a 40 per cent increase in bookings from those living in Donegal, mid Ulster and the eastern counties."
“This is a significant investment for the resort and one which reflects the ever-evolving needs of the market – particularly in terms of weddings, conferences and large-scale functions,” he said.
“Our new offering, complemented by our range of golf, leisure and spa facilities, together with the great scenery of the north coast, will position the Roe Park Resort as the wedding destination of choice for more people than ever before.”
