JD Wetherspoon has spent £2.4m developing the Cabot Court Hotel in Weston-super-Mare on the site of a former hotel and bars, writes Gurjit Degun. The investment is set to create 100 jobs and will open 19 July. The pub is set over two floors and has two bars, a dance floor, a beer terrace and a pavement cafe-style area to the front. The hotel has 23 bedrooms, a mix of family rooms, twin rooms and double bedrooms. Last week, chairman Tim Martin announced that the company plans to open 14 new pubs this month, investing £20m, which will take its estate to 822.
