LONDON, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Whitbread's brand new hotel and restaurant development in Halifax has opened, bringing a total of 37 new jobs to the local area. The new Premier Inn hotel and Beefeater restaurant is located on Broad Street Plaza in Halifax Town Centre and has injected a total investment of over £6.3 million into the local economy.

The Halifax Beefeater restaurant offers guests a casual dining experience and features a newly developed menu focusing on steak as well as modern twists on classic dishes. People familiar with the Beefeater brand across the UK will also spot new trial branding for the restaurants that will reinforce the brand's steak heritage through a stylised pink cow logo and a new strapline "Passionate about steak".

Customers can enjoy an assortment of starters including soup, pate, prawn cocktail, fishcakes, portabello mushrooms and the new Beefeater sharing platter. Main courses include grills and tasty steak dishes with a wide choice of sauces and toppings, and mouthwatering salads including Teriyaki beef steak and grilled goat cheese and beetroot.

The menu also offers indulgent deserts such as the classic Beefeater black forest sundae and baked vanilla and toffee cheesecake.

As part of the new Broad Street Plaza, the new adjoining Premier Inn, the second of two hotels in Halifax from Premier Inn, is at the heart of Halifax city centre, perfect for both business and leisure travelers.

Christopher Thomson, Cluster General Manager of Premier Inn Halifax, commented: "At Premier Inn we want to be able to offer our customers value for money wherever they plan on staying and it is great to be able to offer such as prime location in Halifax."

Each bedroom caters for up to two adults and two children (aged 15 and under) and includes an en-suite bathroom; a king size bed; remote control TV with Freeview; tea/coffee making facilities, and a spacious desk area with 30 minutes free Wi-Fi Internet access. The site will also offer the All You Can Eat 'Premier breakfast' in the Beefeater restaurant.

Premier Inn offers all guests a no quibble 'Good Night Guarantee', which means if customers are not 100% satisfied with their stay they will get their money back.

With over 600 hotels nationwide, Premier Inn is at more locations than any other hotel chain in the UK.
