A HOTEL chain is hoping customers will be bowled over by its new Worcester venue.

Premier Inn has this week opened its 120-room hotel at Worcestershire County Cricket Club's New Road ground.

The budget chain says the hotel has created 40 new jobs for Worcester residents and will contribute £8 million to the local economy.

It will be officially opened during a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, February 14.

The hotel adjoins a new hospitality building which opened at the cricket club last September.

Did the Worcestershire Cricket Club owners ever stress to the Premier Inn hotel chain that they were selling them a building site that suffers badly from flooding EVERY year - or did they leave that information out?

Did WCC rely on the 'caveat emptor' refrain or do Premier Inn have King Canute ancestral links?

Actually having seen the ground under several feet of water year on year, perhaps not such a ridiculous question. To be fair though, I didn't realise they had built it on stilts - there was an element of humour in my posed question Mr. Moo man...
