Premier Inn, Penrith

  • Client: Whitbread PLC
  • Architect: Allison Pike Partnership
  • Value: £2.5m
  • Duration: 34 Weeks

A new Premier Inn has been constructed by Medlock in the Cumbrian market town of Penrith.

Situated just off the M6  near The Lake District, the 60-bedroom development is the largest project Medlock has delivered for the UK’s premier hotel chain.

The three-storey building utilises a timber frame for the hotel element and a steel frame for the podium of the reception and dining area on the ground floor, whilst the exterior is a two-colour render finish.

Medlock also fitted-out the ‘ Kitchen ‘ restaurant with joinery elements such as servery counters, wall cladding and decorative screens manufactured in the in-house workshop.

The new-generation bedroom design provides the comfort, quality and value which come with the Premier Inn brand.
