UK: The Royal Hotel at Kirkby Lonsdale is celebrating its ‘best ever' year

The Royal Hotel at Kirkby Lonsdale has reported its 'best ever' year, following an increase in room occupancy and profits.

The property is owned by hospitality group James' Places. It has reported a bumper 2017 due to a 20% year-on-year increase in turnover and an 11% increase in room occupancy.

General manager Damian Atkins said: "We have benefitted from the fact that visitors now come to Kirkby Lonsdale almost all year round. It used to be a definite Easter to October season, but more and more people seem to be choosing to explore the UK with short breaks now booming in popularity all year round."

He added: "Kirkby Lonsdale is now busy throughout the town for far longer in the year. We are finding that our guests dine with us but will also patronise other pubs, cafes and shops in the town so it's good for everyone and helps to make Kirkby Lonsdale the vibrant place it is. Whenever we announce one of our great value offers, our phones ring off the hook."

The Royal Hotel is part of the James' Places portfolio of hotels, inns, interior design and hospitality businesses across the Ribble Valley and Yorkshire Dales.
