After 26 years, Delvene and John Cornell have sold the Hotel Brunswick.
A statement to The Echo from the Cornells reads, ‘The new owners have promised to maintain the high standard of service, cleanliness and community involvement.’
Along with the announcement was the news that general manager, Terry McCulloch, will retire in early December.
‘Terry’s tremendous talent for hotel management has earned him the nickname “the Pub Whisperer” and he has made our hotel experience so much more enjoyable.
‘We thank him greatly for the fun and friendship. He will be replaced by Kyle Douglas, who has been tutored for the task by Terry at both the Beach Hotel and the Hotel Brunswick.
The executive chef, Elton Gillieron, and his fantastic cooks, will continue to serve brilliant pub food.’
‘All other members of the Bruns team will stay on. We would like to thank them all for their loyalty, dedication to their duties, and excellent care of the patrons, and wish them a happy future under the new ownership.
‘Our thanks also to the many locals and visitors who’ve supported this wonderful hotel over the years. Cheers!’
