Co Londonderry hotel the Roe Park Resort has completed the latest phase of a multi-million pound investment programme.

The Limavady hotel has unveiled its new Roe Park Suite function room following a £500,000 refurbishment. The three-month upgrade has expanded the function room's capacity to over 300 guests.

The hotel's owners have said the work puts Roe Park among the biggest wedding venues in the north west. They said the project has turned the room into a self-contained suite with a private entrance and bar area.

The resort has also invested in its grounds in response to what its owners say is the growing trend for outdoor ceremonies. The investment includes an extensive landscaping and redesign of the grounds to include a wedding gazebo, a private outdoor reception area and a new lawn space for games.

The hotel has already completed the first phase of an investment programme to refurbish all 118 bedrooms. Roe Park has also recently spent £1m on the resort's 18-hole parkland golf course.

The hotel is owned by Roe Park Holdings Ltd, which is 50% controlled by Alan Wilton.

Mr Wilton's company Comtec Developments also recently launched a £13m pound proposal to build a new office and hotel complex in Newtownabbey.

The remaining 50% interest in Roe Park Holdings is divided equally between Limavady businessmen Geoffrey Conn and Kevin McKeever.

According to the latest accounts filed with Companies House, Roe Park Holdings Ltd reported a turnover of £6.4m in 2017, with pre-tax profits totalling £770,000.

Commenting on the latest phase of the ongoing investment programme, Roe Park Resort's general manager Mike Marshall said: "We're delighted to see this important project come to fruition in time for the summer season. As it coincides with the arrival of The Open it firmly establishes Roe Park Resort as a destination of choice.

"The wedding market is ever-evolving, and our investment is in direct response to growing customer demand."
