Plans to give a historic, derelict hotel a new lease of life are progressing well according to the owners. Many conservationists and people involved in Llandudno have welcomed the news, as many have been fighting to preserve what they see as an important part of the towns heritage.
Mostyn Estates, who recently acquired Llandudno’s Tudno Castle Hotel are hoping to launch plans to help restore this hotel to its former glory, retaining the Grade II listed façade that sits in the centre of Llandudno’s amenities, high street and shopping district.
The building has fallen into a terrible state through neglect and being abandoned, and even experienced an arson attack one year ago. Edward Hillier, Managing Director of Mostyn Estates said:
“We are at a reasonably advanced stage of design for a mixed use commercial scheme at the hotel.
“This is likely to incorporate retention of the principal frontages, and rebuilding behind these.
“We are likely to submit an application for planning consent on this revised scheme in the autumn, and are optimistic of seeing some action on site in early 2014.”
The town would benefit from the renovation of the building, especially being used as a hotel. The building sits in a prime position that allows perfect access to the Mostyn High Street, Parc Llandudno Shopping Complex and also the North and West Shore beaches of the seaside resort.
Llandudno has been growing continuously as a holiday destination, primarily for those in the UK that want a holiday by the sea. The wealth of accommodation in Llandudno has been deemed ‘spectacular’ by various top travel sites, with many of the hotels earning themselves some of the most prestigious awards in the world.
