The White House hotel in Rhuallt in Wales is to undergo a £1m development to create a new restaurant and bar due to open spring 2013.
The property, which was acquired by current owners the Parry-Jones family in 2010, is currently undergoing a major redevelopment to turn it into a "luxurious restaurant with rooms" and caravan holiday park.
It will feature a bar and lounge area, a 100-seat restaurant, nine bedrooms and two penthouse suites as well as a function room and a landscaped beer garden.
Ceri Whiteley, project manager, said: "There has been no investment in the infrastructure of the building for the last decade and we've had to make extensive repairs as well as demolish certain sections of the building that were beyond repair.
"We have worked closely with our architect to ensure that we retain the essential characteristics of the building but with a modern and contemporary new design.
"We are now full steam ahead to get the project completed as soon as possible. Currently all the externals are taking shape nicely and we hope to get it sealed before any of the bad winter weather comes."
