The investment by Galgorm Collection, which owns the Galgorm Spa & Golf Resort and a number of other properties across Belfast and Antrim, includes £1 million in further development and extension plans to the property.
The company has also confirmed that all existing team members will be retained across the North Down property which is currently preparing to safely reopen its doors as soon as hospitality restrictions are lifted.
Colin Johnston, Galgorm Collection Managing Director, said:
“Galgorm Collection is committed to cementing the region’s reputation as a world-class tourism destination through our property portfolio. The Old Inn is one of the region’s most historic and appealing hotels, located in a unique and charming location which makes it a perfect fit for Galgorm.”
With a history dating back to 1614 and links to the world-famous local author C.S. Lewis, the thatched-roof property has become one of the country’s top hotels, having received the accolade of AA Hotel of the Year in 2017/18 after a series of enhancements and extensions.
