Mini-hotel in Scunthorpe planned alongside restaurant re-opening

A small hotel is proposed in Scunthorpe.

Two flats on the first floor of a building, 7-9 Robert Street, will be turned into a five bed hotel, if plans are approved. An existing ground floor restaurant area, shut for two years, would remain.

The building has been empty for some time, including the first floor flats. The restaurant, formerly Zeera Spice Lounge, will be renovated and extended with a larger kitchen space.

“There is a large issue with vacant and disused properties around Scunthorpe town centre,” say Keystone Architecture in a planning document, acting on behalf of the applicant. The new hotel and restaurant reopening will bring a building back into use, “which will positively contribute to the rejuvenation of the town centre area”.

The clientele the new small hotel would attract appears to be particularly targeted at travelling traders. Keystone Architecture state the proposed hotel will offer “improved availability of temporary accommodation for contractors and other visitors to Scunthorpe from further afield”.

All rooms will be one bed and have en suites. The hotel will be accessed via a ground floor lobby, with new external access also on the western side.

Increased traffic is expected to be negligible, Keystone Architecture state, adding there is off-street parking for the building and a public car park opposite.
