A former Llandudno hotel which has fallen into a state of disrepair after closing four years ago is to re-open.

Travelodge Hotels says it has exchanged contracts and plans to operate an 83-bed hotel on the site of the former Clarence Hotel, Gloddaeth Street.

They have pledged to restore the prominent building, adding it will also create 60 permanent jobs.

A planning application is due to be submitted to Conwy County Borough Council later this month.

UK development director Tony O'Brien said as there are currently no other branded budget hotels in the town centre the hotel chain could attract new visitors to the area.
