Nunacor Purchases Royal Inn and Suites in Happy Valley-Goose Bay
DECEMBER 20, 2016, HAPPY VALLEY-GOOSE BAY, LABRADOR – Today Nunacor announced that it has acquired the Royal Inn and Suites, a well-established hotel in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
The Royal Inn and Suites, now named the Royal Inn + Suites, has been in operation for over 30 years. While guests can still expect the same quality and service, Nunacor plans to introduce some exciting new amenities in the new year. A state-of-the-art fitness centre will be constructed and fibre-optic high speed Internet will be available to guests. New modern bedding will also be added and its complimentary breakfast will be enhanced to include fresh homemade breads and muffins. Nunacor is also pleased to feature its new custom coffee Mamattuk Roast at the hotel.
The hotel’s website, available at www.royalinnandsuites.ca, has been redesigned with a new brand and logo. It will soon include an online booking option, the first hotel in the area to offer this feature.
This purchase is effective immediately.
- The beautiful Royal Inn + Suites offers 16 rooms and 21 suites, which were expanded in 2003 and 2008. Its nightly rate includes a complimentary continental breakfast and WIFI.
- Nunacor is a diversified and growing Indigenous operation in Labrador with four subsidiary companies and a group of Strategic Alliances in its portfolio. It is the business development arm of the NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC).
- NCC is the representative governing body for approximately 6,000 Inuit of south and central Labrador, collectively known as the southern Inuit of NunatuKavut.
“On behalf of the Nunacor Board of Directors, I congratulate the CEO and staff of Nunacor on this exciting new business acquisition. Our primary purpose is to develop business opportunities on behalf of the NunatuKavut Community Council (NCC) so that they can deliver much-needed programs and services to the southern Inuit of Labrador. I am confident that adding businesses like the Royal Inn + Suites to our portfolio will ensure we can deliver significant returns to NCC and further benefit our people and communities.”
— Brenda Williams-Roberts, Chair of Nunacor Board of Directors
