News: Rotherham hotel planning expansion


Plans have been submitted to enable another Rotherham hotel to expand. They come just two years after the previous operating company went into liquidation.

Restover Lodge Hotel is a 52 bedroom budget hotel with a restaurant, bar and meeting facilities located close to the M18 and the industrial area at Hellaby.

Plans drawn up by architects, Cadvis3d, are for an extension to the existing hotel to provide 29 additional guest rooms, a gym, spa and event space.

The proposed four storey extension would increase floorspace by nearly 15,000 sq ft and include under-croft parking, a spa and gym with a reception and admin area on the ground floor, a mixture of family, deluxe and executive rooms on the first and second floor and space for storage on the third floor, with the possibility of it being used as event space in the future.

Plans state that the accommodation will be of a higher standard to existing and that the proposed gym and spa will provide new facilities for the guests during the evening and facilities for the businesses / residents in the surrounding area, during the daytime.


"The proposals will utilise an un-used patch of brownfield land and allow the hotel to expand and grow. The proposals form an overall refurbishment scheme for the entire site and will enable the owners to modernise the whole site, upgrading the existing rooms to match the new. Providing new facilities and attract more business.

"The site is currently a budget hotel, but wishes to provide a higher level of accommodation, in-line with competing hotel chains. It also wants to appeal to executives and families seeking affordable, clean, modern accommodation.

"The site is well located next to the motorway and the extension would not cause any negative impact on the amenity of neighbouring units or area. The proposals will provide more jobs both during its construction and after with maintenance and general duties running the hotel and gym."

Restover Lodge Hotels Limited entered liquidation in 2014 after encountering trading difficulties having taken on new hotels in Doncaster and Peterborough. At the start of that year, administrators at Moorfields secured a deal through property consultants, Colliers, to sell the Rotherham and Doncaster hotels to new owners in a £533,000 deal.

In nearby Bramley, a planning application for an extension to the existing Premier Inn hotel was recently approved despite a number of objections. It is set to provide 21 extra rooms at one of the group's best performing facilities in the region, as measured by occupancy and turn-away data.
