A SOUTHSIDE hotel wants to more than triple its accommodation and change its food and drink offering.
The Ivory Hotel, at the corner of Camphill Avenue at Langside Avenue, Shawlands has applied for permission for an extension. The long-established venue currently has 11 bedrooms.
If the proposal goes ahead, there would be 32 rooms, with the existing restaurant and bar turned into a continental-style, licensed cafe to reflect the changing demographic of Shawlands and Langside.
Eighteen of the rooms would be provided in a three-storey extension over garage parking in the current car park.
Every bedroom would have a kitchenette as the owners look to a cater for guests who want to self-isolate.
A design document states: “The indicative layouts provided show this development in the context of the refurbishment and extension of the existing hotel and the change of the food and beverage offer from a bar and restaurant to a licensed café.”
Permission is initially being sought for the principle of using the car park for the extension and, if approved, detailed plans would be submitted.
