The redevelopment of The Kings Gap Hotel is nearing completion now and from most aspects the building is completely unrecognisable.
The porta-cabins were removed a couple of weeks ago enabling a much better view of the hotel, with what I guess is a new side entrance and car park. If you look through the windows overlooking the garden, you’ll see stacks of new chairs and tables.
The hotel and Frankie’s restaurant is due to open in the next few weeks. I wonder if Frankie Dettori and Marco Pierre-White will attend an official opening?
Meanwhile, around the corner on Meols Drive, there doesn’t appear to be any further progress on the Royal Hilbre Hotel. You might recall that firm behind the development hoped to secure additional funding in order to complete the works.
Anyway, what do you think of the new Kings Gap building?
