A hotel in West Lancashire which has been dubbed the ‘Best Wedding Venue in Lancashire’ for eight consecutive years running by Country Brides, has unveiled its ambitions for expansion.
West Tower Hotel in Aughton has submitted plans to build more bedrooms to accommodate the growing demand from the weddings’ segment of its business.
The hotel, currently home to just 19 bedrooms spread across its main house, a small cottage and coach house, hosts more than 150 weddings per year, with the bedroom capacity capped at 45.
Now West Tower Hotel is hoping to build an annexe with nine new bedrooms, offices and a staff bedroom, converting a disused barn and stables.
Stephanie Beqo, general manager of West Tower said: “We are hopeful our planning application for additional bedrooms on site will be successful, this is an obvious development for us as we are primarily using a space that currently exists.”
