HRH The Princess Royal has opened the new 250 people events space and 30-bedroom extension at the Ramsey Park Hotel.
The original 30 bedroom hotel was opened five and a half years ago and proved to be a great success. In light of this success the owners have added a new multi-purpose function room for up to 250 people, called the Ayres Suite and a further 30 bedrooms to accommodate extra guests and to cater for weddings and events.
HRH The Princess Royal was accompanied by Sir Richard Gozney, Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man and The Hon. Mrs Louloudis, Lady in Waiting and was welcomed to the hotel by its owner Mr Trevor Hemmings CVO and Hotel Manager Mr. James O’Neill.
Some 60 representatives from the local business community also attended the opening and were introduced to HRH The Princess Royal followed by a Champagne reception and buffet in the Ayres Suite.
Richard Grime MD of Classic Lodges Hotels says we are honoured that HRH The Princess Royal opened the hotel extension: “To have a member of the Royal Family open the hotel is a huge honour for the Isle of Man and for everyone who has worked on the project and for everyone working at the hotel.”
General Manager of Ramsey Park Hotel, James O’Neill, says the Ayres Suite is already proving to be a tremendous success: “We have held a number of weddings and events already and have many more booked over the next 12 months. TT week and the Manx GP were extremely busy for the hotel and we are delighted to be hosting the Manx Diabetic Group’s Ball on 9th November.”
The hotel now has 60 bedrooms consisting of 39 Deluxe Sea View rooms and 15 Deluxe Lake View rooms and six executive family suites and a function space for up to 250 people.
