North Wales-based hospitality and leisure operator One Hundred Knights is set for further expansion in 2021, with enabling works continuing at the Royal hotel and plans to open a new restaurant this autumn.
The new restaurant will use British produce and serve classic British dishes with a contemporary edge, described as "accessible, affordable and friendly".
The business' portfolio already includes wedding venue Tyn Dwr Hall (pictured), the Three Eagles Bar & Grill and the Royal, all in Llangollen.
Knights Construction Group began restoration works at the Royal in July, starting with structural works to secure the river wall beneath the hotel footprint, while new locations have been identified to further develop the leisure portfolio.
One Hundred Knights managing director Matt Jones said: "We're enormously proud of our company culture, the community of people we work with and the businesses we operate. Armed with a winning formula, we plan to open more hotels and restaurants in the next five years.
"Following a substantial period of progressive growth, we have restructured the senior management team to ensure dedicated support in key areas across finance, commercial and marketing. This will prove integral to the team in driving commercial success, with our sights firmly set on further development and rapid expansion."
Yvonne Jackson, chief executive of Condor Hotels, has been appointed to the One Hundred Knights board of directors to support plans to refurbish and re-launch the Royal. Following a full refurbishment and renovation, the four-star property is expected to open to guests in late 2022, with further properties planned both regionally and nationally.
