An 11-bedroom hotel in Wales could more than triple in size if plans for a £4m bedroom expansion are given the green light by councillors.
The owners of Plas Hafod Hotel at Gwernymynydd near Mold, Flintshire, have submitted a planning application to add an extra 30 bedrooms as well as give its dining room, function room and reception a makeover.
Owners, the Buckley family, would invest £4m into the project and create an extra 18 jobs as a result of the extension, which a spokesperson for the family said would be good for the ‘hotel and the whole area’.
If the project is given the go ahead, the extra bedrooms would be added to the side of the current hotel building, which dates back to the 1700s.
The owners have been working with heritage body Cadw and planning officers from Flintshire council on the plans.
The early 18th century house was built in approximately 1700, and is situated in nine acres of landscaped gardens. Plas Hafod Hotel is home to 11 bedrooms and The Greenhouse restaurant.
