    The Isle of Man’s latest hospitality venue – a stylish new 30-bedroom hotel being built next to Ramsey Park – is on schedule to open in mid-August, bringing 15 to the local area.

    Owned by Isle of Man resident Trevor Hemmings, Ramsey Park will be a contemporary hotel with each of the bedrooms having views of Mooragh Park, the lake or the sea, and some having views on both sides. It includes the stylish 50-cover Lake View Restaurant for hotel guests and non-resident diners.The hotel is the latest to come under the Classic Lodges ‘Associate’ hotels umbrella and will be run by the newly-appointed General Manager, Steve Dawson. Steve, a resident of Douglas for more than 30 years, is relishing the challenge of getting the hotel up and running: “I have worked in the hospitality industry for many years,” he says, “but this is the first time I have been involved from the very beginning and it is incredibly exciting to have an input into how the hotel will operate.”

    Steve believes that as well as the hotel’s luxury accommodation, style and location, the restaurant will become a destination in its own right: “I am sure that with the fine food we will be serving, and its impressive location on the shore of the lake, the Lake View Restaurant will soon be a favourite for locals and visitors alike,” he says.

    Richard Grime, Managing Director of the Classic Lodges chain of hotels, says that Ramsey Park represents a multi-million pound investment for the Group, and into the local community: “We are delighted to be adding Ramsey Park to our portfolio of hotels,” he says.

    “Ramsey Park is slightly different in that it is a modern building, whereas most of our current properties are historic properties, but the location, and the quality of service it promises, is entirely consistent with the Classic Lodges brand. I have no doubt that Ramsey Park will become its own modern-day classic.”
