A newly refurbished hotel in east Hull will play a central role in the city’s renewables revolution thanks to Humber accommodation specialist Nightel Ltd.
The Embassy Hotel on Hedon Road was bought by Nightel owner Paul Green early this year and has been fully refurbished and rebranded as Nightel Express.
Situated opposite Alexandra Dock, the hotel will principally be used to provide accommodation to engineers and technicians in the renewables industry coming to work in the city.
However, it is also open to people visiting the area for other reasons, and non-residents will be able to use the newly revamped Gingers café and bar.
Mr Green said the hotel was perfectly situated for easy access to the docks, making it the most obvious choice to renewable workers coming to Hull.
Nightel Express has 23 rooms, each featuring free wifi and BT and Sky Sports, and a conference room with screens and projectors for businesses.
Mr Green said:
The Embassy has always been popular with locals and visitors alike and is well known in the city. But as the renewables revolution gathers pace, it’s location has become its greatest asset. It is situated directly opposite Alexandra Dock where Green Port Hull is taking place and while that is happening the need for quality accommodation for engineers, technicians, consultants and all sorts of other workers is going to be huge.
We’re specialists in providing accommodation for offshore workers in both the oil and gas sector and the renewables industry so this is an extension of what we already do and it is the first hotel in Hull to be targeted specifically at the renewables industry.
As well as Nightel Express, Nightel operates Nightel Humber on Humberside Airport – a hotel which provides dedicated accommodation for offshore workers – and a number of luxury, serviced apartments in Hull city centre usually occupied by visitors to the city or senior managers and directors.
The company is also building the region’s first Hampton by Hilton hotel, also on Humberside Airport, to cater for business travellers and holiday makers travelling to and from the region.
Mr Green said:
As the renewables industry grows on both sides of the estuary Nightel is growing with it. Our accommodation has been specifically designed with the energy sectors in mind and Nightel Express is the latest addition to our portfolio to provide this.
