Hotel set to reopen in May


HAMILTON, Bermuda, Mar 26, CMC  – A refurbished hotel in the west of the island which closed its doors five and a half years ago during a seven-year recession that hit Bermuda is scheduled to reopen in May.
The Willowbank Hotel, which opened 56 years ago closed in November 2011.
“Our chief executive officer Kevin Dallas and our chief product and experiences development officer Pat Phillip-Fairn visited Willowbank this week and were delighted to see a property on the eve of a new beginning with a team of staff and managers motivated to welcome visitors very soon,” said Glenn Jones, Director of Public and Stakeholder relations at the Bermuda Tourism Association.
“Our expectation is that Willowbank will reopen its doors formally on May 1. It’s especially good news to have additional hotel inventory online ahead of the America’s Cup.”
Jones said the Bermuda Tourism Authority is encouraging Willowbank to reposition itself as a 64-room family hotel, leveraging its secluded beaches, green space and the surrounding neighbourhood which has a family-friendly feel — all while remaining true to the hotel’s original mission.
“The team here on-island and in New York will work with Willowbank to assist with its reintroduction to the Bermuda hospitality industry.
“We’re excited about what they’ve done so far and look forward to the opening in about six weeks,” Jones said.
