A restaurant chain in Wales is pressing ahead with the £1.5m restoration of a new hotel it acquired in November last year.
Dylan’s Restaurants, which has sites in Menai Bridge and Criccieth, is well underway with the refurbishment on the Grade II listed Conwy building that is expected to take five months to complete, with a scheduled opening date planned in May.
The refurbishment team is being led by Anglesey-based firm JA Thomas Construction, who said the project is ‘progressing well’.
The inside of the property is being restored to its former glory with JA Thomas uncovering a number of original features along the way, such as wood panelling, an arts and crafts cast iron fireplace and terrazzo floor.
Dylan’s has previously refurbished the historic building, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s art deco style Morannedd building in Criccieth in 2015.
The Washington Hotel was most recently a night club until it closed in 2012.
