The hospitality and accommodation venue overlooking Tynemouth Longsands, previously known as The Park Hotel, is being redeveloped by new owners The Inn Collection Group and is due to open later this year.

The Newcastle-based firm has partnered with North Tyneside Council and Newcastle United Foundation to offer a week of training in the company’s operations, visits to other businesses in the portfolio, and customer service workshops.
