Alderman Bill Keery, Mayor of Ards and North Down, said that the hotel "will make a very significant contribution to the accommodation offering locally and is much needed as we begin to explore other exciting opportunities for the town that will attract more visitors over the next five years. The council has recently signed a £50 million agreement for a mixed-use redevelopment of Queen's Parade and, as part of the Belfast Region City Deal, has secured £60 million for the regeneration of a two-mile stretch of the coastline from Pickie to Ballymacormick Point - plans that will reimagine Bangor for both residents and visitors."

The hotel was built by PJ Conway Contractors Ltd who redeveloped the site of the former Bangor Leisure Centre into the latest generation Premier Inn. In total, the construction of the hotel took 17 months, with recruitment at the hotel starting three months ahead of opening. Recruitment of the new team was focused through the local Job Centre Plus.

Commenting on the launch, Kevin Murray, Head of Acquisitions for Premier Inn in Ireland and northern England, said, “The hotel is right where our customers will want us to be, with the transport connections and accessible parking they expect from Premier Inn, and features our latest specification bedrooms and family-friendly in-house restaurant. It’s an excellent showcase for the quality of our hotels and we’re expecting it will be popular with leisure and business guests year-round.”

The opening represents the latest phase of Premier Inn’s investment in Northern Ireland and follows the granting of planning consent for a 51-bedroom extension of the Lisburn Premier Inn (consented in mid-June).
