A ROOFING and construction contractor has begun work on the refurbishment of a 50-room hotel overlooking Scarborough’s harbour.
Infiniti Roofing & Construction, which has offices in Leeds and Scarborough, is currently working on the former Mount Hotel.
Following the completion of work, the property will have 65 rooms and be renamed The Bike and Boot.
The six-month contract with Bike & Boot founders, Simon Rhatigan and Simon Kershaw, has ensured employment for 20 skilled local construction professionals, as well as specialists trade contractors brought in to create what will be a significant holiday and short-stay visitor destination and leisure facility for local people.
“This is an incredibly exciting project for us,” said Marcus Rowe, director of Infiniti Roofing & Construction, part of the Infiniti Group.
“It is an indication of the kind of high-quality construction work that Infiniti Roofing & Construction aims to be involved with. There are already plenty of hotels in Scarborough and North Yorkshire, but nothing at all like this – it will be truly spectacular.”
Adventure and Outdoors Tourism
Working alongside interior designer Rachel McLane Ltd, the refurbishment includes new en-suite bathrooms, with new showers and toilets, plus new carpets and decoration in all 65 rooms, as well as the creation of a new in-house hotel cinema, E-bike charging stations, dog and boot wash, and refurbished bar, restaurant and kitchen areas.
The Cliff Bridge Terrace location overlooking Scarborough harbour and waterfront, with the North Yorkshire Moors National Park nearby, will make the five-storey Bike & Boot perfect for adventure, outdoor pursuit and family holidays, as well as local residents.
The contract for the Infiniti Scaffolding Group comes in the wake of the opening of a new 10,000 sq ft HQ in Scarborough and a new 4,000 sq ft depot in Leeds.
