Ipswich: Bid to build a lodge-style hotel alongside new pub

A NEW 24-room lodge-style hotel could be built beside the new Mermaid food-based pub at the junction of Yarmouth and London Roads.

Pub group Marstons have applied for permission to build the new lodge in a separate building from the recently-completed Mermaid.

It would provide 24 bedrooms giving accommodation for diners and for visitors to the town – there would be no further facilities and residents would be expected to eat in the pub itself.

The design of the building would be similar to that of the nearby Mermaid pub which has also been built by Marstons.

The application needs special consideration by planners at the borough because it is on a flood plain.

It was lodged with the borough last week and is expected to be discussed by members of the council’s planning and development committee over the next two months.

The Mermaid is about to open on the site which was previously used as a conservatory show area.
