A derelict hotel in Llandudno is set to be given a new lease of life as a Premier Inn. The Tudno Castle Hotel has been empty since 2008 and is now the focus of a multi-million pound project to develop the site.
The Daily Post reported that work has finally started on the project, which will also see a Beefeater pub and Prezzo restaurant included in the finished site.
Contractors Bowmer & Kirkland have now started work for landowners Mostyn Estates. They have gone through a three-year planning process to get to the point where work could begin.
According to Edward Hillier, managing director of Mostyn Estates, the whole project will take around a year and a half to complete. In addition to fitting out the restaurants and hotel, the development will also involve restoration of the building’s Grade 2 listed facade.
“It will be a significant addition to the existing hotel and restaurant offer in Llandudno, and will enhance the town’s reputation as a progressive and vibrant place to visit and live,” Mr Hillier told the newspaper.
Once it’s up and running, the hotel and restaurants will create around 100 new jobs for Llandudno.
This isn’t the only site in Llandudno getting a new lease of life this year. Earlier this month, the Daily Post reported exclusively on plans put forward to Conwy Council to develop the town’s empty Pier Pavilion site.
A block of 54 apartments, as well as two restaurants and underground parking are at the heart of the plans. If the proposal is given the go ahead, it is expected to take two years to construct.
