Plans were approved for the venue, which will see the group’s beachfront sites in Lytham St Annes, the Lindum and the Carlton merge into one 99-bedroom property.
The redevelopment will also include a family-friendly restaurant with 250 covers alongside a large outdoor seating terrace, which will overlook St Annes Pier and the Ribble Estuary.
Additional bedrooms will include premium sea view rooms, accessible accommodation and dog-friendly suites.
Relaxed beachside venue
Once finished, the site will operate under The Inn Collection Group’s Eat, Drink, Sleep and Explore concept and will create about 60 full-time jobs.
The Inn Collection Group operations manager Chris Moor said: “We are delighted plans have been given the go ahead and work can now begin to give this site a vibrant new lease of life.
“The project will create a relaxed, beachside venue, benefitting of its location as one of Britain’s most popular traditional seaside resorts.
“The Inn Collection Group specialises in rejuvenating aspirational sites this like while being careful to retain the individual character and appear that makes our venues so distinctive.
“The redevelopment is a major investment by The Inn Collection Group, which will revamp and refresh not only the site itself, but which will contribute towards the wider economy of Lytham St Annes with valuable increased visitor spend, inter trading and employment opportunities as well as creating a vibrant new facility for the community to enjoy.”
Last month, the group was granted permission to convert a north Tyneside venue into a family-friendly pub with rooms.
The Park will be remodelled and will feature an ice cream parlour alongside a fish and chip takeaway as well as new outdoor seating areas, which will make the most of the site’s panoramic views of Longsands beach.
The Inn Collection Group acquired its first site of 2022 with the purchase of the Glenridding Hotel in Ullswater, Cumbria.
This was followed by the news the group was acquired by a new company, backed by The Harris Family Trusts together with Kings Park Capital in a deal rumoured to be worth in excess of £300m.
