A plan to expand a four-star hotel in Oxford by 48 bedrooms has been submitted to the local City Council.
The Oxford Spires Four Pillars currently consists of 174 bedrooms but a proposal has been launched by the hotel’s owners to build a 18-room block at the back and a 30-room block at the front.
Also included in the plans is a project to expand the existing restaurant and bar into the current car park, which isn’t being used by guests at the moment.
Oxford City Council is aiming to make a decision on the plans by Wednesday March 23.
The plans, the biggest since the hotel was built in 1999, come as a £5.5m, 83-bedroom Travelodge opened at the bottom of Abingdon Road last month.
Oxford Spires said that the plans were not in response to the new budget chain’s arrival.
