Old college building transformed into luxury hotel

By Alex Jones in Planning

A FORMER Coleg Harlech building has been converted into luxury accommodation.

The Grade II listed building in Harlech, which enjoys stunning sea views of the Llyn Peninsula, has been bought and converted into a five-star luxury bed and breakfast.

Crown Lodge, which was built in 1903 for Thomas More, the Crown Agent for Wales, is now owned by Mr and Mrs Rosser who bought the property in January 2016.

Using funds from the sale of their house and by releasing equity from another hotel business in Llanfyllin, the Rossers were able to fund the remainder of the purchase price and carry out an extensive 14-month restoration project.

Between 1949 and 2014 the striking stone building was owned by Harlech College and used to accommodate students.

Mark Rosser, co-owner of Crown Lodge, said: “Linda and I were so pleased when we found our second hotel, Crown Lodge, and our relationship manager Nick Shannon was incredibly supportive of our plans to grow the business and bring this beautiful old building back to life.

“It hasn’t been properly lived in and loved since 1949 when it was sold by the Crown, so we’re delighted to have been given the opportunity, made possible by support from HSBC.”
