The Swan Hotel at Hay-on-Wye is to be transformed after its new owners unveiled plans for a £1.2m refurbishment project throughout the whole property.
The 19-bed hotel was sold by Colliers International to Swan @ Hay Limited, headed by Calum Milne, the managing director of Llangoed Limited, a group of hotels which includes award-winning Llangoed Hall and Sudbury House in Faringdon.
The building, which dates back to 1821, will now undergo a full renovation, with Milne heading up the £1.2m project.
He said: “The intention will be to bring the Swan up to the same multi-award winning standard as the other two hotels in the group – Llangoed Hall was Hotel of the Year in 2014. All three operate as independent companies but offer the very best in hospitality and fine cuisine.”
Alongside the 19 bedrooms, the hotel is home to public rooms, a function room, two bars as well as a garden with country views.
