A new hotel expected to bring £4million to the Clacton economy is due to open next month.
The 66-bedroom Premier Inn has replaced the historic Waverley Hall Hotel on Marine Parade West, close to the town’s pier.
Whitbread PLC, which owns Premier Inn, estimates the new hotel and restaurant will create between 20 and 22 new jobs, and boost the economy by £4m.
The restaurant is also open to the public.
The three-storey hotel is due to open on February 23.
