Record year for hotel group

James Nettleton

A Cornish hotel group has reported a record year of results with combined turnover up by ten per cent.

The Nettleton Group comprises The Bay Hotel, The Esplanade Hotel and Fistral Spa, all in Newquay, and most recently acquired Boringdon Hall Hotel in Devon.

Director James Nettleton said: “We are very fortunate to finish 2011 in a secure position, largely as a result of some very hard work on the part of our staff and also a solid focus on continually gauging and reacting to the marketplace and the needs of our consumers.

“We are completely committed to strengthening the quality and appeal of our products on an ongoing basis. 2011/12 is potentially going to be a very tough year – it’s vital that hotels improve on their current strengths and make changes where necessary. Competition will be fierce but we believe that those who take a proactive approach will stand to benefit in the long run.”
