The former Sherborne Hotel is currently being demolished to make way for a smaller boutique hotel that has been proposed for the site.
Work started this week with new owner Quantum Group anticipating the demolition process to be complete by December.
While details of the development still remain under wraps, Quantum Group said it received a positive response to an initial hotel proposal, with members of the local community giving the plan the thumbs up.
In the original plans which were shared by the Group, Quantum discussed knocking down the former hotel to create a smaller boutique hotel in its place, plus a food and beverage outlet and assisted care living properties.
Sherborne Hotel closed its doors for the final time in mid-May ahead of its hand over to Quantum Group on May 29.
