New lease of life for build­ing

CHB Mail - - News -

De­spite ru­mours to the con­trary, Waipuku­rau’s iconic Tav­i­s­tock Ho­tel is not up for demolition, says owner Jackie Chang.

Ru­mours had started to cir­cu­late af­ter last month’s sud­den clo­sure of Break­ers Restau­rant and Cross­roads Bar, which were both lo­cated in the old ho­tel.

The build­ing’s war­rant of fit­ness had also lapsed.

Mr Chang says he is work­ing to get new tenants into both busi­nesses as soon as pos­si­ble and get both the restau­rant and bar open again. Work is al­ready un­der way to­wards re­new­ing the lapsed war­rant of fit­ness.

“I am 100 per cent com­mit­ted to keep­ing the Tav­i­s­tock Ho­tel open and run­ning,” he said. “I have in­vested a lot of money in the build­ing and I want it to be fully ten­anted.

“The ac­com­mo­da­tion up­stairs in the ho­tel is still ten­anted.”
