Bosses behind a long-awaited six-storey hotel have announced when the first visitors will be able to stay the night.
The Hampton by Hilton Ashford International will open on the corner of Beaver Road and Victoria Road in July.
Staff are accepting bookings from Thursday, July 1, with a one-night stay for one adult in a ‘king room’ priced at £59.
Boasting 140 rooms, bosses had initially hoped to open in December but the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic delayed construction.
The summer opening will mark the end of a lengthy journey to realise the venture, with an initial 120-room planning application being lodged with Ashford Borough Council six years ago.
Despite council approval in November 2016, design changes were later requested by the applicant, resulting in 20 extra rooms.
Construction had begun in earnest in December 2019, utilising a speedy shipping container-esque method of building the rooms.
