Now proprietor of the pub next door has taken on the site as part of a nationwide investment in the hotels sector.
In a statement the applicants noted: “The hotel has been designed as a calming place in stark contrast to the vibrant streets outside. With a neutral palette and a focus on light and materiality to enhance the visitors experience and achieve a wow factor. The design incorporates extensive use of glass and reflective materials which aim to capture some of the essence and awe of its namesake."
