A north Norfolk hotel is hoping a £675,000 renovation will bring a better experience for its guests.

The Globe Inn in picturesque Wells-next-the-Sea invested the money in building 12 new bedrooms, as well as refurbishing its restaurant and installing a traditional wood-fired pizza oven.

Creating the new accommodation involved transforming a 19th century coach house in the courtyard of the hotel, in The Buttlands.

The new Courtyard Wing comprises three ‘apart-hotel’ suites with kitchenettes, four dog friendly rooms and five ground-floor bedrooms.

With interiors designed to champion the Norfolk coast, the rooms were designed by Holly Pagani of Salt Interiors in Norwich and each have their own feature wallpaper.

Owners Stephen and Antonia Bournes first revealed their plans for the hotel, which they have owned since 2013, in October last year.

Mr Bournes said: “This is a hugely exciting chapter for us and the future of The Globe Inn.

“We always knew we wanted to invest long-term in this lovely building and we’re very proud to have achieved all this in six months.”

The rooms were unveiled at a launch event last month.

Former owners of Southwold Pier Mr and Mrs Bournes bought The Globe Inn from the Holkham Estate and have since embarked on major refurbishment works.

In 2015 it won Best Independent Hotel at the EDP Visit Norfolk Tourism Awards.
