The plans also include a bar, restaurant and conference facilities, gym and swimming pool. Developers promised to create 65 full-time jobs during the construction period and a further 120 jobs in the hotel.

It is now expected councillors on the planning committee will approve the plans on Monday.

The news that the application is likely to be approved has been welcomed by Abersoch councillor Wyn Williams and local campaigners who launched a petition to reverse the refused planning permission on the White House Hotel.

Speaking to Cambrian News, Catherine Williams, who launched the petition, said: “This is fantastic news, I’m really glad I took the time last July to start the Facebook page and the support from the local community was nothing short of awesome.

“There’s been a lot of hard and expensive work behind the scenes and the owners of the hotel really deserve the credit for never giving up, it’s showed what people power can do.”
