Hotel changes - hands
ONE of Rushden's best-known hotels, the Westward in Shirley Road has been sold.
But new proprietor Badru Jamal says it will be service as usual. Londoner Mr Jamal has taken over from the previous owners Mr and Mrs Miles Craston, who plan to buy a smaller guest house.
The 26-bedroom hotel features a restaurant and bar and a covered swimming pool.
"I liked the place," said Mr Jamal who is making his first move into the hotel trade.
"I wanted a place like this and I thought this was the right thing to do."
