A landmark hotel in Bournemouth which is operating as part of the Bespoke Hotels portfolio is set to be demolished to make way for a new hotel, if plans are approved.
A new proposal to knock down the Wessex Hotel in order to build a ‘new, upgraded hotel with approximately 100 bedrooms’ will be put to the public next week.
The current hotel has 109 bedrooms, as well as leisure facilities and conference rooms, plus the Amalfi restaurant.
According to the plans by developer Inland Hotels, which already own the building, the new hotel will be created alongside two new apartment blocks.
The scheme is promising “high-quality architecture” with buildings designed as “traditional style villas”.
The plans emerge almost a year after the hotel was bought by local developer Philip Oran for £3.75m from LaSalle Investment Management.
