Work on hotel to start this summer
WORK to transform Clevedon’s Royal Pier Hotel into apartments is due to start this summer.
In July or August, contractors for the building owners, Freemantle Developments, are expected to move on to the site to begin work on the ambitious plans.
The proposals, which were given the go-ahead in March 2011, will see 17 luxury apartments created in both the existing Grade II-listed building and a new, modern extension.
Workmen have already been site stripping out the derelict structure and clearing the site to allow the developer’s design team access inside.
Freemantle Developments director Nick Warfield said: “We are working with architects, interior designers, engineers and project managers as well as going through contract selection.

“We have also got our agents assigned so it is all moving now.”
The Royal Pier Hotel was closed in 2001 and has since been left to fall into a state of disrepair.

Built in 1823 and originally called The Rock House, the building was redeveloped by architect Hans Price in 1868 and renamed the Rock House and Royal Pier Hotel, which was eventually shortened to its current name.
