Hotel has 38 rooms and is already very popular

Derby recently got one brand new hotel which has employed dozens new workers and has already welcomed over a hundred guests.

Located in Linville Close, off Raynesway, Alvaston, adjacent to the Blue Jay pub, the Blue Jay Lodge has 38 rooms which were already used by over 900 people.

Owner Marston’s Inns and Taverns invested about one million pounds in the lodge and the pub thus creating over 60 new jobs.

The Blue Jay Lodge provides different rooms that can satisfy the needs of every customer, either it is a large family, couples or perhaps a single traveller. Furthermore, there are also rooms with a disability access.

As mentioned, the lodge is built adjacent to the pub, which offers a variety of breakfast options, from traditional English and veggie menu to the American style pancakes and a wide selection of freshly-baked pastries.

In the past month, since the opening, the lodge connected with the most important local businesses, including Ted Baker, Severn Trent and Rolls-Royce. The hostel is located in the proximity of a large Ted Baker distribution centre on Derby Commercial Park.

Manager of the Blue Jay Lodge, Yvonne D’Arcy, said: “We have been amazed at how well it is all going for us here.”

“The lodge has been close to capacity most nights, and everyone who has stayed has been positive about their visit so we can only see this continuing.”

“It has been such a great investment for the city, and we are so pleased that it has been a great success until now.”

At the beginning of this week, Marston’s presented their last financial report, showing that the good summer weather has increased its sales.

The company, which manages many lodges and pubs throughout the UK, including Pitcher and Piano and Two For One brand, reported that the sales in their premium pubs were up by 0.6{4fdb5acd4891bace33ada2338e55dfcfb4968d3d0c3ddd4319d06b6e16894e20} in the past quarter, which was ahead of the market as they said.

CEO, Ralph Findlay stated: “We remain encouraged by our continued market out-performance and focused on delivering sustainable growth and maximising return on capital in an evolving marketplace.”

“We rest assured of delivering further profitable progress for the whole financial year.”
