Premier Inn submits plans for Lincoln hotel expansion

Premier Inn in Lincoln has submitted plans for extra bedrooms and an extension to its restaurant.

Plans submitted by David Christmas on behalf of the hotel chain would see 24 new bedrooms created on the site at Broadgate.

The proposals would see a change of use of unused retail units on the ground floor to create the new bedrooms.

Councillors on City of Lincoln Council’s planning committee will consider the change of use proposals at a later date.

The Premier Inn opened in 2013, with 130 rooms at that time, starting at £29 per night.

Rooms at the hotel include ensuite facilities, a king-size bed, Wi-Fi, Freeview TV, a desk area and tea and coffee.

Darrell Sabin, general manager of Premier Inn Lincoln city centre said at the time: “The hotel is ideally located for those looking for a great value weekend break with all that Lincoln has to offer on its doorstep.

“Its central location will also be extremely convenient for business travellers looking for accommodation.”

There is also a Premier Inn on Lincoln Road on Canwick Hill.
