Surya Hotels is nearing completion of a £1m programme of investment at four Dragonfly-branded hotels in East Anglia which it acquired two years ago.
The group has identified 241 bedrooms for refurbishment across the sites, in Colchester, Bury St Edmunds, King’s Lynn and Peterborough, with communal areas also being upgraded.
All 50 bedrooms at Colchester have now been fully renovated together with more than 40 of the 71 rooms at Bury St Edmunds, with the remainder to following in the coming months.
Suki Dulai, managing director of Surya Hotels, said: “We are delighted to be getting on with the business of bringing the Dragonflys up to the standards of other hotels within the Surya group and continuing to make significant investment in the local area.
“These four wonderfully situated hotels in East Anglia are a great addition to our already impressive line-up, offering competitively priced, quality facilities and accommodation in the heart of stunning villages and towns.”
