A leisure group has revealed plans to convert a former Baptist chapel into a four-star boutique hotel, complete with a bar and restaurant.
Glendola Leisure Group had originally planned to transform Charlotte Baptist chapel into an Irish-themed pub, but this changed after locals were said to be strongly against to the proposed new project.
Now the group is said to be developing a new plan for a four-star 22 boutique hotel, bar and restaurant in partnership with its sister company Carlton Hotel Collection.
Glendol said its new plans for the historic building were first unveiled at a public consultation held last month, with official planning permission due to be submitted in the middle of August.
Alexander Salussolia, managing director of Glendola Leisure Group, said: “We are fully aware of the historic status of the Charlotte Baptist Chapel and we intend to be responsible stewards of that heritage.
“Through our successful Carlton and Bar & Beef brands, we are bringing a premium hotel and restaurant offering to Rose Street, which we believe will be very attractive to both residents and the City’s expanding tourism population.”
