Planning permission has been granted to Puma Hotels for the development of a 107-bedroom lodge hotel adjacent to the Harrogate International Centre (HIC).
The hotel will be directly linked into a new 3,400sqm exhibition facility which is to be built as part of the first phase in the redevelopment of the HIC.
The development will also provide improved access into HIC from the four-star 170-bedroom Barcelo Majestic hotel, also owned by Puma Hotels. Planning consent is already in place to extend the Barcelo Majestic by a further 85 bedrooms.
"We are delighted to be involved in the future development of the Harrogate International Centre and to be providing such extensive hotel accommodation in the heart of Harrogate," said Howard Shore, chairman of Puma Hotels.
