Flats at Dorville Hotel site almost finished
PUBLISHED: 08:00 25 June 2016
A former hotel in Weston-super-Mare is unrecognisable now as work to transform it into flats is well underway.
The former Dorville Hotel, in Madeira Road, is being turned into 20 one and two-bedroom flats.
Owner Connolly and Callaghan was granted permission to begin the work in 2013, but work has only got under way in the past year.
The Dorville is one of a number of Weston hotels which are in the process of being changed into something else.
Weston College continues to carry out work on the Arosfa Hotel, in Lower Church Road, to use it as a law and professional services academy.
And a planning application has been submitted to North Somerset Council for the Lynton House Hotel to be turned into 48 flats.
The former hotel, which is in Madeira Road and round the corner from the Dorville, was damaged by a fire in 2008 and 2015.
Around 20 people have submitted comments, with most criticising the lack of parking spaces in the area.
Others said although they supported the building being improved, the plans are for too many flats.
