Homes and guest house plan for ex-ho­tel

Caernarfon Herald - - NEWS -

A former ho­tel and restau­rant could be turned into new homes and li­censed guest house if the town cen­tre plans are given the green light.

The plans, sub­mit­ted to Gwynedd Coun­cil, in­clude the con­ver­sion of Bar­mouth’s former Lion Ho­tel into a smaller guest house and two four bed­room homes.

The ho­tel, which shut in 2010, housed a restau­rant and 21 let­ting rooms.

But ac­cord­ing to the ap­pli­cants the plans on the high street would of­fer a form of ac­com­mo­da­tion not avail­able in the area.

The con­verted busi­ness would re­tain its li­censed ho­tel fa­cil­i­ties, but on a smaller scale.

The de­sign and ac­cess state­ment, ac­com­pa­ny­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion by Stonewest Con­struc­tion Ltd, says: “Due to the dere­lic­tion of the prop­erty and with the ben­e­fit of the ap­pli­cant run­ning two other sim­i­lar busi­nesses in Bar­mouth the his­toric and en­vis­aged trad­ing fig­ures for the ho­tel as cur­rently con­fig­ured is un­eco­nom­i­cal and un­sus­tain­able.

“Bar­mouth could not sup­port an­other busi­ness of this type and size.

“It is felt that the de­sign and pro­pos­als are a vi­able scheme of de­vel­op­ment in terms of the con­tin­ued use as a li­censed premises, guest house on the site and an ap­pro­pri­ate scheme of en­hanc­ing to the fa­cil­i­ties pro­vided to­gether with the im­prove­ment of the ap­pear­ance of the premises and their set­ting.”
