FERMANAGH’S Killyhevlin Hotel has announced plans to invest £1.6 million in 12 new self-catering studio units.
The expansion of the River Erne resort is expected to create 10 new jobs.
The Lakeview Studios, which are expected to be open by July, will add to the 71 guestrooms and 20 self-catering lodges currently at the waterfront site, close to Enniskillen.
The modular concrete-built units will include a kitchen, lounge and outdoor patio area.
The hotel’s finance director, Jacqueline Wright, said: “These promise to offer a new luxury self-catering experience at Killyhevlin Hotel exclusive to couples wishing to enjoy a relaxing break and spend quality time together.
“In addition to the £1.6m investment, we are excited to be adding to our award-winning team by creating 10 new roles across our housekeeping, reception and food and beverage departments.”
The companies involved in the project include Elliott York Partnership, Kavanagh, BuildWright Modular Homes and Douglas Wallace.
Leigh Watson, HR director at the Killyhevlin Hotel added: “Couples staying at our new Lakeview Studios will have the best of both worlds, private stylish studios with beautiful views over Lough Erne, and all the hotel facilities on their doorstep.
“Studio guests can enjoy complimentary use of Killyhevlin Health Club, which includes gym, indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, outdoor hot tub overlooking Lough Erne. We are the only hotel in Northern Ireland to have a Padel Court on site.”
