Congratulations are in order for The Humber Royal team. They have just won a coveted North Lincolnshire Investment Award in recognition of Icon Hotel Groups £2 million plus investment in the Grimsby based Hotel.
General manager Anne Bennett said: “We have put so much hard work, commitment and time into the project so it is great to see it being recognised. Icon saw the potential, wanted to invest in Grimsby and what it has done is given the staff a real boost."
Sales manager Claire Brumby said: “The hotel had been run-down and tired for 20 years or so. It hadn’t had any investment since the 1970s. There were seven or eight locations that Icon could have chosen, but they recognised the opportunity to have a quality hotel which Grimsby had been lacking.”
This award recognises the contribution a business has made to the local economy. Open to any business that has relocated to or significantly expanded in North East Lincolnshire in the past five years. Applicants needed to demonstrate how they had contributed to the economic success of the area.
