PREMIER Inn want to increase the size of their Pacific Quay hotel in Glasgow by nearly 50 bedrooms and add a Costa coffee shop.
The company have lodged plans for a five-storey extension of the building which is beside the Clyde at Bells Bridge, next to the BBC Scotland headquarters.
The hotel, which opened in 2014, would go from 180 to 229 bedrooms if the development is approved. The ground floor of the extension would house the coffee shop which would also have external seating.
The extra accommodation would be built at the BBC side of the car park with spaces reduced from spaces to 156.
The existing bar/restaurant facilities would be refurbished and have an increased number of seats. Both the restaurant and coffee bar would be available for use by non-residents during the day and early evening.
A document submitted with the application states: “The need for an enlarged hotel arises due to the increasing demand for accommodation at this end of the City of Glasgow.
“Its location within a walking distance to key buildings such as BBC Scotland, Clyde Auditorium, the SSE Hydro and the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre has made the hotel accommodation a very successful developments.”
The proposal is being assessed by city planners.
