Pub king Wetherspoon is to triple the number of bedrooms at its hotel in Corby, after plans were approved.
The Saxon Crown in Elizabeth Street in the town centre is currently home to 12 bedrooms, but this number will now be increased to 42 as a proposal from owners Wetherspoon has been given the green light from planners.
The upper levels of the site will be converted to make space for the new bedrooms.
Wetherspoon spokesman Eddie Gershon said he hopes the move will make other businesses invest in the town.
He said: “We are delighted that plans for a hotel alongside our pub in Corby have been approved.
“We believe the new hotel will be an asset to the pub and, just as importantly, to the town itself.
“Hopefully the investment in the new hotel will act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in Corby.”
The Saxon Crown opened in 2014 and the expansion will also see alterations to the building’s interior and repairs to its exterior. It is not yet known when the expansion will be ready for business.
