A VACANT seafront hotel in Weston-super-Mare could be turned into luxury apartments.

Developer Connolly and Callaghan has submitted plans to North Somerset Council to convert the former Dorville Hotel,which has lay vacant for eight years, into a mix of 20 one, two and three bed flats.

The 45-bed hotel, which closed in 2004, sits on a 0.1 hectare site at Madeira Road and lies within the Birnbeck conservation area.

The scheme, drawn up by Pegasus Planning Group, would see the four storey building retained and refurbished.

The existing mews building would also be converted to a refuse and cycle store with a two bedroom apartment created above.

The extension at the front of the building would be removed along with the large balconies which run around the building.

As part of the scheme the building would be re-rendered and the windows replaced.

Previous plans to demolish the hotel and build a new five storey building with 40 flats were refused by councillors due to the design and density of the development.

Other potential uses for the hotel have included a temporary hostel for families and as a private house.
