A North Pembrokeshire hotel hopes to expand with its planning application for extra bedrooms and function room when they come up for discussion next week.
The Webley Hotel at Poppit hopes to add an extra seven bedrooms, along with a function room and new entrance hall to its building overlooking the Teifi estuary.
Pembrokeshire County Council’s planning committee is recommended to approve the application which will double the number of rooms available with the existing seven also in need of modernisation and refurbishment.
The three-storey building is between St Dogmaels and Poppit Sands and includes a detached building of flats and garages which would be partly demolished to make room for part of the proposed extension.
A planning report to the committee on July 28 states that a semi-circular gable will be created with a second smaller two storey section extending into the current parking area, at the back the extra rooms will be in an extension over the kitchen/storage area.
A previous extension to the kitchen area was approved in January 2020.
The front of the hotel would see and new indoor seating area extension with views of the estuary.
“The proposed development would have social and economic benefits through the refurbishment, modernisation, and expansion of the existing hotel in this countryside location to provide a higher standard of facility in this tourist location, to serve an increased number of guests with the provision of a function room and additional guest rooms,” states the report.
