Ion Developments, North-west based regeneration specialists, has announced today the Rhyl Seafront Travelodge has completed construction.
The 2,785 m2 scheme developed by Ion Development for Denbighshire County Council was built by Wynne Construction and sits on the site of the East Parade car park near the Pavilion Theatre and 1891 restaurant.
The hotel boasts a render finish and includes a ground floor reception, bar and breakfast restaurant area. The 73-room hotel consist of 69 family rooms and 4 accessible bedrooms. There are 50 parking spaces available for guest’s use.
A total of 400 local personnel worked on the project under Wynne Construction’s policy of employing local supply chain partners.
The Travelodge will form part of Denbighshire County Council’s £25 million Rhyl Waterfront regeneration scheme, which has already seen the completion of a Marston’s pub and restaurant catering for 150 customers.
The SC2 attraction is due to open in April while the works to the Children’s Village car park is scheduled to finish by the end of March.
Steve Parry, managing director, ION Development said: “It’s brilliant to see completion of this excellent addition to Rhyl’s seaside offering. We look forward to seeing the Rhyl Seafront Travelodge provide a boost for Rhyl’s tourism economy as a key component of the Council’s ambitious vision to transform and regenerate the waterfront.
Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, leader of Denbighshire County Council, said: ‘The completion of work at Rhyl Seafront Travelodge is another milestone in the regeneration of Rhyl.
Along with SC2 and work on the Rhyl Masterplan, there is more investment ongoing in Rhyl, something which will create jobs and support the economy of Denbighshire as a whole.’
