Plans to increase the number of rooms at Jersey's only five star hotel have been approved by the island's planning applications panel.

Longueville Manor will construct a two storey building containing 10 guest suites and extra parking.

The hotel was bought in a state of disrepair by Sidney and Edith Lewis in 1949 and has remained in the family.

The panel's director said the development at St Saviour would be "a significant boost for the industry".

Peter Le Gresley, the director of planning for the States of Jersey, said: "The panel was mindful of the fact that the planned development is in the green zone, but it also took account of the need for high quality investment in the tourism industry.

"This development represents a significant boost for the industry and will enable the hotel to plan for the future."

The planning panel also agreed Les Charrieres Hotel in St Peter could be demolished to make way for nine new homes.

Rose Farm Campsite in St Brelade will also be knocked down to make way for five new homes.
