Malmaison Hotel du Vin has announced that planning permission has been given to create a new hotel in York, which will join the portfolio.
The hotel group revealed in October last year plans to transform the former Aviva building on Rougier Street into a new Malmaison hotel and now York City Council have approval the scheme.
The multimillion pound renovation can now begin later this year to develop the property into s new hotel with 160 bedrooms, plus the brand’s Chez Mal Bar and Brasserie dining space and Work + Play, Malmaison’s meeting and events concept.
The news comes following a period of significant investment and growth over the last 18 months for Malmaison Hotel du Vin, with the acquisition of four new properties across the UK.
The group is also continuing to roll out a multi-million pound refurbishment programme across its existing portfolio.
Paul Roberts, chief executive officer, Malmaison Hotel du Vin, said: “We have long been fans of York, where Hotel du Vin continues to be a favourite for both locals and visitors. The vibrancy of the city means that it is also a perfect location for the Malmaison brand. We can’t wait to get started on this exciting opportunity.”
