A HIGHLY-rated guest house in Llandudno could be converted into an aparthotel, after plans were submitted to Conwy County Borough Council.

Sunnybank Guest House, at 23 Deganwy Avenue, would become a commercial short-term letting complex as part of owner Fiona Rhys-Jones’ plans.

The new complex would see one full-time and one part-time member of staff employed.

A planning supporting statement by Hafod Planning Consultants states: “The current guest house use satisfies a good number of these requirements [guest house requirements], and it is not proposed that this should largely change.

“Overall, the development is a simple, and modest change to the former guest house provision.

“It remains as serviced accommodation within the HAZ [Heritage Action Zone] and in a highly sustainable location.

“It is suited to the character and context of its setting.

“The design is simple and unobtrusive and ‘sits’ well on the site.

“There would also be no harmful impact upon the amenities of neighbouring residents.

“Neither would it be harmful to any other interest or consideration of material importance.”

The conversion would result in the building retaining “some of the characteristics of an aparthotel or self-catering accommodation”.

The plans will now be discussed by the council’s planning team.
