The Mayor of Newtownabbey Alderman Billy Webb continued his business visits today, meeting Monica Quinn and Daniel Walsh from the Chimney Corner Hotel.
Originally built as a nineteenth century coaching house, the Chimney Corner Hotel continues to offer guests a warm, personal welcome. Only fifteen minutes from Belfast International Airport and Belfast City Centre, and within easy reach of all ferry terminals, the Chimney Corner is the perfect location for individual guests or conferences and seminars.
Manager Monica Quinn commented:
“Chimney Corner Hotel guests have long recognised the good value the hotel has to offer, that’s why they keep coming back! All 62 rooms have en suite bathrooms along with direct dial telephone, television, radio, trouser press and coffee/tea making facilities; but the Chimney Corner is about a lot more than great value accommodation. Guests can combine the demands of a working day, with the pleasures of a full service restaurant and an outstanding nightclub”.
Accountant Daniel Walsh commented:
“We have ambitious plans for the hotel which include re-launching the bar, restaurant and function room facilities to be ready for the summer. It will require a huge financial commitment from the owner of around £200,000 which will in turn hopefully create 10 full time and 20 part time jobs on top of the 30 who are already employed by the hotel.”
Alderman Webb commented:
“It is wonderful to meet inspiring local business people who are taking the initiative in these harsh times and re-inventing their product to appeal to new and old customers alike. I wish them well with their refurbishment plans and look forward to coming back to see the impact of the work”.
