PREMIER Inn has lodged another extension plan for another of its Oxfordshire hotels, just days after one project was given the go-ahead.

The chain, which owns about 800 hotels in the UK, wants to build an 80-bedroom annexe at its Oxford South hotel, based at the Milton Interchange in Didcot.

Currently the hotel has 135 bedrooms. It wants to add a four-storey extension, leaving it with 215 bedrooms if it is permitted.

The hotel work would also include new linen facilities on each level.

The hotel’s car park currently has 166 car spaces, including 10 disabled spaces. If the extension is granted, there will be 39 spaces added, leaving it with 205. Of those, 14 would be for disabled people.

The current hotel has previously been extended twice. It is connected to a Beefeater restaurant by a glazed lobby.

Designers have said the extension 'will provide a contemporary building with a palette of materials that is in harmony with the existing hotel and restaurant buildings'.

Vale of White Horse District Council's planning officers said they hope a decision will be made on the hotel project by February 2019.

Bicester's Premier Inn was given permission to extend by 56 bedrooms in Kelso Road earlier this month.

That hotel opened in 2013 and will leave that hotel with 140 bedrooms once work has been completed.

In Oxfordshire, Premier Inn currently runs seven hotels.

They include those in Didcot and Bicester and others in Oxford, Abingdon, Banbury, Witney and Chipping Norton.
