Proposed Greenwich hotel to see increased rooms as design revised

An approved plan for a hotel in Greenwich could see an increase in rooms from 293 to 349 if plans are approved.

The new submission would see revisions in building height (slightly taller) while floor to ceiling size would reduce.

London Hotel Group are behind the venture which has seen little activity for many years.

In early 2021 an application was submitted stating work would begin on site in May 2021.

The site encompasses the former Greenwich Magistrates’ Court which closed in 2016. Initial plans included a taller block before the current design was approved.

Former plans dropped

Approved plans mimic former school buildings.

Refurbished school buildings

In a meeting with Greenwich Council leader Anthony Okekreke and Cllr Aidan Smith, the application states that the operator “are looking at a 4 star hotel with prices ranging from £70- £150 per night”.

The area is a bit of a hotspot for hotels, with a Travelodge directly over the road, another Travelodge a few hundreds metres north next to a Premier Inn.

The nearest station is Deptford Bridge serving the DLR.

Hotel plans on site in 2021 would have brought £1,859,925 in Community Infrastructure Levy payments alongside Section 106 income.

That will now be revised higher given additional floorspace proposed.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    • Thank god for common sense in design. Nothing truly innovative for a hotel but blends in well and has interest, unlike the majority locally. Interesting the prices they quote for rooms. I spoke to a hotelier from Greenwich at a travel agency event this year, 4 star also, a well known brand, yes typically around £100+, BUT they fail to mention rates are based on supply/demand. When big events are on locally ( marathon etc) and especially big names at the O2, (Peter Kay now monthly with extra dates already added) she told me £400+!!. Nice little earner haha 😂
