CGL is thrilled to announce the ownership of the Ibis Styles last week, from 1 September 2021 – now named ‘The Cambridge’.
CGL Chief Executive Officer, Tony Chafer explains:
“We see the acquisition of this site as an exciting next step in our strategy to broaden our footprint in the East Kimberley and diversify our business.
CGL is a locally owned company and we want to provide an entrance statement to the town that our community will be proud of. We are proposing to increase room numbers from 60 to 100 and will be demolishing the reception, restaurant and conference room and constructing a 2-storey frontage with access off the highway incorporating two restaurants and a second storey bar with views across Lilly Lagoon.
In the process of establishing the management structure for the Cambridge, the two best applicants by far were local and we are thrilled to welcome Narelle Brook and Dean Proudman as our management team to work with our CGL management team on delivering our vision. We are also extremely pleased to have retained most of the Ibis staff who will make an important contribution to the transition of The Cambridge .”
