Share post:

British multimillionaire David Whelan, 76, became the new owner of the Lone Star Hotel and Restaurant recently after purchasing the West Coast property for over US$13 million (BDS$26 million).
The former footballer and businessman, who has been visiting the island for nearly 40 years, told the BARBADOS BUSINESS AUTHORITY that over the coming months he would be investing over £1 million (BDS$3 million) to enhance the ocean front boutique hotel.
Whelan described the location as “simply stunning”, adding that he would ensure any changes do not damage the ambience.
At present the property has five rooms and a staff of 40.
