Newly-redesigned hotel brand Village Hotels has unveiled plans to open a new property in Chandler’s Ford in Hampshire.
If given the go ahead, the hotel would become the 30th property to open in the UK, following shortly after Village Hotel Club Portsmouth which launched in November 2017 following a £21m project.
Plans include the creation of 153 bedrooms, plus a gym, a Starbucks on site and pub and grill, as Village Hotels aims to invest ‘significantly’ in the project.
A Village Hotels spokesman said: “Whilst Village Hotels is undertaking a planning application, the brand is working closely with local residents and businesses to get their feedback on the exciting scheme. More than just a hotel, Village offers a place to dine out, stay, work out and play, all under one roof. The brand is dedicated to providing its guests and local residents with everything they could need under one roof.”
The cost of the scheme has not been revealed yet but the company confirmed that a planning application is to be submitted to Eastleigh Borough Council in the next few months.
The news of the plans proposed for the site in Chandler’s Ford has been welcomed by the local authorities.
Keith House, council leader at Eastleigh Borough Council, said: “Village Hotels’ proposal for Chandler’s Ford looks really exciting. It will bring jobs and growth in the important hotel sector that also brings additional spend to the Borough. Their concept of a quality hotel with restaurant and leisure facilities looks spot on for this area.”
The Village Hotels group comprises 28 hotels across the UK, with the addition of Portsmouth bringing the number to 29 in 2017.
