Waterside Hotel

Post by Monti » 16 Dec 2014, 22:58

I was on to the Waterside earlier to arrange a night out at the weekend. I wanted info on the courtesy bus and was told that it had been withdrawn as there was a new company in place for the past 3 weeks. Anybody know what is happening?

From what I heard, the hotel got into difficulty recently and an administrator was appointed. It could be that an agreement was reached to sell the hotel to another party or that the administrator is still in place. Either way, they seen to be trying their best to keep it open and ruining. 7 of my family stayed there last weekend and said they made up about half of the bookings. Pity.

They went into Administration about a year ago. It only lasted about a week. Not good if it has happened again so quickly.

Hopefully it will be resolved and the jobs will be saved.

It has amazing potential. Amazing views. Right beside golf clubs / beech.
