Hoardings have been set up around the site for Rhyl’s new Premier Inn hotel.
Work on the 70-bedroom hotel and a Brewers Fayre restaurant is due to start later this summer, after over a year of delays. Developers say around 50 jobs will be created once the new complex opens next summer.
Denbighshire County Council gave developers planning permission in May after changes were made to some of the proposals – the site of the former Honey Club will also include 71 car parking spaces.
Premier Inn acquisition manager Nick Johnson said: ”We are excited about getting started on site for our new Premier Inn in Rhyl this summer. With the hoardings now up, we’re keen to build momentum towards opening in advance of the summer 2017 and to seeing the benefits of investment, more hotel choice, new year-round jobs and the regeneration of this site realised in Rhyl.”
Denbighshire council leader Hugh Evans added: ”The installation of these hoardings is another landmark event in the regeneration of Rhyl’s waterfront and the wider town centre. The hotel and restaurant will provide another option for high quality, family-friendly accommodation and amenities in the town, bringing more visitors to the area and creating new jobs for local people.”
