Isle of Wight hotel plans approved

Tourists on Isle of Wight holidays will be able to stay in a hotel on the site of the old Ventnor Winter Garden in the future after plans to convert the building were given the go-ahead.

A group that includes Michelin-starred chef Robert Thompson, who cooks at the Hambrough on the Isle of Wight - will add two and three-storey extensions to the side of the Winter Garden to create 37 bedrooms, while the facility will also boast a restaurant.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, the bar and foyer would need rebuilding due to the movement of the ground as part of any refurbishment of the site.

The Hambrough Group must receive council approval on issues such as a draining system, as well as materials, external lighting and traffic management.

Thompson describes dining at the Hambrough as an addictive experience and it is likely he will seek to recreate this with his new creation at the Winter Garden site.
