HEREFORD'S Premier Inn hotel could be about to get bigger.

Plans have been submitted to build up to 20 bedrooms at the Holmer Road site.

The extension would be at the northern elevation of the hotel facing the Starting Gate.

"The development proposed would match the existing hotel in terms of external walling, roofing materials and fenestration by utilising a similar design and appearance," reads a planning document submitted to Herefordshire Council.

"The form and location of the proposal has been carefully chosen to allow an effective and efficient use of this part of the site."

An additional 22 car parking spaces would be created – bringing the total amount for the hotel and the Starting Gate to 128.
