NEWSMAN HUW PRAISES ANGLESEY TOURISM

Newscaster Huw Edwards, was the guest of honour at a celebration event for the official launch of the new £2 million Townhouse hotel annexe, close to the famous Castle in Beaumaris on the Isle of Anglesey.

The stunning development, part of the popular The Olde Bulls Head Hotel, has created over 60 new jobs on the island - one of the UK’s top holiday destinations.

Huw, a passionate supporter of Wales tourism cut a ribbon to launch the new Townhouse and praised owners David Robertson and Keith Rothwell for their vision and commitment.

He described the 13 suite development as “a superb example of what can be done working in partnership” and said it would provide “world-class accommodation”, which would only help boost visitor numbers to the region and keep Anglesey at the forefront of the vitally important tourism economy.

Huw also called for better pan Wales transport links, particularly from North to South, which he said, would ultimately transform Wales.

Guests at the champagne event included, the Mayor and Mayoress of Beaumaris, Welsh Assembly Government Deputy First Minister Ieuan Wyn Jones, civic leaders, top tourism executives from the island and North Wales and leading members of the Anglesey business community.

The new Townhouse development close to the Menai Straits is seen as one of the most significant financial investments in the tourism economy on Anglesey, which is a hugely popular destination for holidaymakers from across the North West, Yorkshire and the Midlands.

More than 1.4 million people visit Anglesey each year and the tourism industry employs over 3000 people and is worth over £214 million a year to the local economy.

The island off the North Wales coast is also experiencing a boom this year as more people choose to holiday in the UK because of the effects of the recession and the strength of the Euro.

The Townhouse project, which centres on the famous 500-year-old Ye Old Bulls Head Inn, has seen the creation of a state-of-the-art annexe housing 13 luxury hotel suites to rival anything in the UK hospitality market.

The 16th century Townhouse building, which is just over the road from the Bulls Head in Castle Street, was completely derelict when hotel owners David and Keith  bought it four years ago.

Now, following a “Grand Designs” style renovation programme, which has taken over two years to complete, they have transformed the building into the most luxurious and contemporary five-star accommodation in the region.

A team of architectural and design specialists from Anglesey, North Wales and London were called in to mastermind the transformation and to ensure that 16th century history dovetailed neatly with 21st century technology.

The local council, and the Welsh Assembly, supported the project from the outset.

The project has been very challenging indeed but we are really pleased with the results” said David Robertson.

With more and more people choosing to holiday at home plus the increase in the business and short break market, it was vital that we invested in order for us to grow the business in the future. We want The Townhouse to be something very special, pitched at the top quality end of the market but affordable luxury in keeping with our customers needs”.
