Wisbech hotel set to get major face lift as plans go in for three storey extension

THE 13-bedroom White Lion Hotel in Wisbech is due to re-open next month after a four month face lift.

But new owner Robert Edgar is already planning a major investment having unveiled plans today for a three storey, eight bedroom extension.

Search Architects of Long Sutton have been commissioned to design the extension which they say will make the function room and second floor bedrooms more accessible.

The architects also believe the improvements will make the hotel more able to host weddings and conferences.

The company says the extension has been designed and selected “in the context of the existing historically interesting architectural character of the hotel” and local conservation areas.
