Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh, has announced plans for the addition of 12 new self-catering lakeview studios following a £1.6 million investment and the creation of 10 new jobs.
The new studios at Killyhevlin Hotel, which currently comprises 71 guestrooms and 20 two bedroom self-catering lodges, are due to open in July. They have been designed specifically for couples looking for a self-catering experience on the edge of Lough Erne with the added benefits of the adjacent hotel facilities.
Each one bedroom studio will feature large, front-facing glazing to maximise the views that Lough Erne has to offer, an open plan fully-equipped kitchen, a lounge area, a bathroom and air-conditioning. There will be six units at lower ground floor and six units at upper ground level, each with private outdoor furnished patio areas.
Killyhevlin Hotel worked with local companies Elliott York Partnership and Kavanagh Construction along with BuildWright Modular Homes and Douglas Wallace to deliver this project for July 2023.
Jacqueline Wright, finance director of Killyhevlin Hotel, said, "We are delighted to announce plans for the opening of 12 lakeview studios this July. 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 £1.6 million 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."
Leigh Watson, HR director of 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 complementary 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."
