UK: Largs boutique hotel development is in the pipeline
A new boutique hotel is in planning and development stages in Largs, North Ayrshire.
The hotel will cater to the fast-growing budget boutique hotel market.
McMillan and Cronin architects design brief states: Largs has suffered heavily from the loss of a ‘traditional’ hotel accommodation, where stay, drink and dine, was the blend of offerings. It no longer has a significant level of overnight accommodation available, yet the demand for such is seen as booming in many areas – but through a different type of product offering… Budget and boutique hotel accommodation is seen as being a fast growing industry.”
The hotel will house a reception area and fourteen rooms. The development site is a partially-demolished derelict property.
The developer, local businessman John Corrigan said: “It will generate some more town centre accommodation which is badly needed with all the hotels that have closed. We have had various applications for the site over the years but the business market has meant that we have had to alter our thinking on each occasion.”
