A HOTEL has seen an influx of people booking their weddings after restrictions were lifted.

The Parkmore Hotel, in Stockton, has experienced a flurry of enquiries for new and existing wedding bookings following the government’s lifting of restrictions on the number of guests at ceremonies.

The Eaglescliffe-based hotel has 25 weddings booked in for the second half of 2021 with multiple calls for additional bookings coming in moments after the Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement.

In addition, couples with existing bookings have been contacting the hotel to begin planning for extra guests.

The converted Victorian hotel, which also includes a spa and leisure club, can normally accommodate up to 100 guests in the Bramhall Suite, but will continue to work to social distancing guidelines until restrictions are lifted completely, enabling weddings for up to 60 people.

The hotel is now advising future bride and grooms to check availability for the rest of the year as restrictions ease.
